C., SATUEDAY SEPTEMBER 10,1904.  X ales of the   X own  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  y  The session of the railway commission held here on Thursday, if it did  not do anything else, established the  fact that Mr. Giegerich, of Kaslo, is not  a very strong friend of Nelson.     Mr.  Qiegerich claims that the change in  tbe rates bas resulted in a loss to bim  of $10,000.   While many people will be  pleased to learn that the Kaslo merchant bas made that much meney during his   few   years residence in the  Kootenays, they will still be excused if  tbey not accept the statement as to his  loss without further investigation.     It  .came out ia tbe course, of discussion  that  the C. P. B. in   arranging its  rates and selecting distributing points'  is only following the policy of all other  transcontinental lines.    If the towns  from which complaint comes as to discrimination were in a position to buy  in large lots, they naturally would secure a much lower rate ' than they do  in buying in small quantities.    The  whole thing is, as Mr. Mclnnes pnt it  in his reply to Prof. Mills' question, the  C. P. E. believes "it to be for the general good of the tributary district as  well as of the centre that there should  be dis trlbuting points.    Nelson is in a  position to carry on a wholesale business : these other towns are not."  And  that Mr**-' Blair fully appreciated the  situation the best evidence is found in  his summing up that, "We are not going to make a ruling that will disturb  conditions all over the country unless a  principle can be found that will apply  everywhere,"  is anxious to put  here this -winter.  in a couple weeks  The Bohemian Cbhcert Company  will give an entertainment in the Nelson Opera House next Monday evening. The con/p&nyhas been to Vernon  recently, and betels what the News of  that place says off the performance: "A  most delightful evening was spent by  those present. Mr, Herbert Taylor has  a splendid voice ��� and his rendering of  'Toreador's Love Song,' 'Off to Philadelphia,' 'Simon tbe Cellarer' and  other selections called the heartiest and  most spontaneous and such repeated  calls for.-encores that the complacent  l ' ' '  singer must have beeu quite tired out  before he could escape the complimentary insistence of the audience. Miss  GertrudeMarrack's musical and vocal  selections' were excellent, while Little  Glen, in her coon songs and humorous  pieces, made a decided hit. The entertainment, as a whole, was splendid,  and was Undoubtedly one of the best  musirial performances tbat' has appeared in the city for some time."  There is some curiosity expressed as  to tbescopeiof the" rail way commission  now visiting British Columbia.' Victoria Progress thus defines tiie work  and practice of the commission : "It is  not generally understood that the commission is a sort of court and conducts  its business in a regular way. That is  to say, if complaints are made which  come within the scope of the commission, notice must be given not only to  the commission but to the party complained against. The la*w Axes ten days  as the length of notice to the opposite  party. Some people seem to * have regarded the commission in much the  same light asthey do oue of theMin-  isters of tlie Crown, that is, ready at  auy time to hear and determine questions ; but this is not the case. There  must be a specific complalut.' Notice  to tbe opposite party and the presentation of evidence which may be.under  oath. ' Then the question ough^tb be  argued and after that, tbe commission  render their verdict."  ���William Cranston, who will act iu.  resident manager at Nelson for the company that has organized the new theatrical circuit, has in   contemplation  many   improvements in   tho   Opera  House.    The carpenters and painters  will begin work next Tuesday, so that  when the house opeus the" following  week   with  A.    L.   Willard's  "Jim  Bludso," the. public will scarcely recognize the placed '' Mr. Cranston'is*  now  booking many attractions for tho season.   The first after the Wiilard Company will be the return of the Shirley  Company, which will play here during  the full 'Fair  week.     Following the  Shirleys will be the James Keen Company, which-will  be seen for  three  nights lh October in repertoire.   Sev-  oral other companies have been bookwT  for October, November aiid December}  and altogether the citizens of Nelson  will  be   well ���'provided for   in theatrical    way    during    the     season.  Amongst the attractions, there is likely  to be an   opera, company and   the  ubiquitous Tom Marks, who has won  fame all through  Eastern   Canada,  During the past week or so Nelson  has entertained several distinguished  guests, not the least prominent being  William Randolph Hearst, the proprietor of half-a-dozen or so daily newspapers, published in the leading cities  of the United States. Mr. ^Hearst is  not a journalist, but certainly his accomplishments in the field of publication entitles bim to front rank among  successful newspaper men; 'fty'e reason why special importance attaches  to this geutleman's visit, is tbe fact  that he is in a position to do i so much  in the way of attracting-attention, to  Nelson as a tourist resort, and the further fact that  he has as much- as inti-  / "   -  mated that be will through tbe medium  bf his newspapers point but to the  American public the unequalled advantages of tho Kootenay as a resort  for sportsmeu and those in search of  recreation. Fie was told of what the  country offered tbe sportsman by a  Chicago friend who had visited Nelson  two years ago, and came here* to investigate for himself. He only intended  to remain a day or so, but so attractive  did he find the place I hat he prolonged  his stay several days, and expressed  his intention of returning for a longer  visit as soon' as he can get away from  business. He was taken in hand by  Mr. Jas. Johnstone, and certainly no  one is better qualified to impart information as to the resources of the Kootenay than Mr. Johnstone. It is understood that Mr. Hearst's secretary, an  old newspaperman, bas iu preparation  several letters dealing with the beauty  of Nelson and the Kootenays which  will be published In several American  dally newspapers.  The Nelson lacrosse team is practising an hour or so every afternoon and  Field Captain Hawkins promises that  the boys will give a good account of  themselves when they meet the New  Westminster team. The team bas secured anew man, who ih. said to have  shown up well during the practices.  Just now the arrangement is to play  the Cranbrook team here* during the  Fuir.andcleave for New Westminster  either on Sept. SO or Oct. 1.  The Nelson Masonic lodge room bas  been fitted up with, new furniture, and  is now perhaps the best furnished lodge  room in British Columbia. Elaborate  ork chairs for tbe master,' past masters  and other officers are included in the  new furnishings. A new floor has beeu  put down, and the Fred Irvine Co.  Ltd., are supplying the rugs and art  squares. The furniture was ordered  through D. McArthur tt Co. and is the  best that could be secured in Canada.  From present indications tbe attendance at the Nelson Fair on September  28 and 20 will exceed tbat of any former gathering of tbe people of Southeastern British Columbia. The railways and steamboat lines are giving  return tickets for single fare. The Fair  itself will be a great attraction. The  fruit exhibit will occupy a large space  in tbe centre ofthe main building, and  P. Burns & Co. are furnishing cold  storage facilities free of charge for the  accommodation of fruit-growers who  have perishable fruit to exhibit. Secretary Annable has received a number  of glass jars from "the Provincial Government for exhibiting fruit. Among  o.ner features ofthe Fair will be a dog  show, at which there will be seen the  be8*t breeds ofthe canine species to be  found in the Kootenays. The outdoor  attractions are good and include many  novel and daring'acts.' ,  on San Juan Island, which are of historic interest to Canadians and Americans alike. Monuments will be erected,  one at each place, similar to that  which commemorates tbe meeting between the two daring navigators, Vancouver and Quadra, at Nootka io 1792.  It will take place on October 21st, the  anniversary of *" the date on which the  euts of young Ohlandt objected to his  marriage, but love laughsat locksmiths'}  and the young ceuple left San Francisco for Portland, when they married,  and telegraphed for forgiveness."

The Nelson Bowling" Club will ask  permission of the city council to bowl  on the green in the recreation grounds.  Writing to R. E. Gosnell, of Victoria,  from the Agent-General's office in London, Mr. J. A."Turner includes in his  letter this interesting bit of news: "I  had two most distinguished visitors  fast- week in Chief Louis and Chief  Johnny-of Kamloops. They created  quite an excitement in the neighborhood. They al so enjoyed their first  motor car ride around Finsbury Circus.  I am perhaps not right in saying 'enjoyed.' As a matter of fact, I believe  they were scared to death, hut with a  Siwash's stolidity, would show nothing."  Professoi Edmund S. Meany, of the  History Department of the University  of Washington, and Secretary of tlie  Washington University Historical Society, who is now in Victoria, proposes  to mark with becoming ceremony the  sites of the British and American camps  dary dispute.

Why do judges  permit this sort of thing ?  CanadaShould Have a Mint  Mr. D.R. Wilkie, vice-president and  genera] manager of The Imperial Bank  of Canada, has recently been visiting  British Columbia for the purpose of  keeping himself in touch' with tbe  trend of business matters in this Province, and tb enable the officers of: the  bank to deal intelligently with business  conditions out here. While here, he  is reported as having given utterance  to the following true words :  "Canada needs a mint, both for business and sentimental .reasons, and no  part of the whole country would benefit so much by it as British Columbia.  Here gold, silver and copper are mined  and the big gold country to the north  is tributary to the province. Now all  this gold goes to United States banks  only to come back to Canada';as coinage. There is an assay office in Vancouver and the benefit of that institution being there bas been obvious.  Butthe gold is nearly all eventually  taken to the United States, there  coined, and Canadian financial institu-  tionshave to receive it back again from  across the line.  "This country is literally flooded  with American silver. On every dollar of tbat silver, the country to the  south makes roughly fifty cents. Why  should Canada not make that fifty  cents on her own silver, mined and  minted here? ^The United States  makes the difference between the bullion price of the silver in the open  market and the value of the dollar  after the stamp is on it.  "There was very little use refusing  American coinage, or even discounting  it. The better way would be to accept  the money at par and then ship it all  back; to "the States.! With . a mint  turning out Canadian coinage; our  own money would soon become the  universal medium of exchange in the  country, and Canada would reap the  resultant profit between the value of  the metal and the value ofthe coin.  "The sentimental advantage of having a Canadian .coinage, too, ia great.  There is no dob&t that the ordinary  man, having before him from childhood the continual idea ofthe emblem  of a foreign country, as it appears on  United   States   coins,   becomes   im  pressed, unconsciously, perhaps, with  the idea of the importance of that country and of that emblem. Why not  have the king's head on that coinage,  and make that impression a Canadian  oue? As it is we are advertising another country at the expense of our  own."    .  While certain elections were being  held in this Province not many years  ago we heard much of a Canadian mint  and of the benefits which would accrue  The Mother Lode, situated about 1.}  miles up Poplar creek, is claimed by  those who have visited it to be one of  the best-looking propositions   in  tbe  Lardeau district, says the Trout Lake  Topic.  The lead is over 15 feet in width.  Its values are in gold, silver, lead and  zinc and while its grade is not high,  quantity and  character jnost suitable  for concentration make it a most desirable property. A strong porphyry dyke  forms   the   footwall,   the hanging   is  quartzite merging into schist.     The  strike is north 20 degrees, west the dip  being 58 degrees.   .The property is being worked   by A.  L. Houston and  John Y. Cole.     Development work, so  far done consists of a shaft 30 feet deep,  a fine  looking ore dump of about 125  tons discloses the character of the ledge  matter taken out.   A drift is now being  driven  on the lead which  follows a  smooth footwall upon which is about  one foot of gouge and talc, the rest of  tbe drift being in heavily mineralized  gangue_and -sulphide iron   ores and  quartz.   This drift is about 100 feet and  will be pushed ahead burriedlyjby two  shifts for another 150 feet.     This will  give over 200 feet in depth, when arrangements will be made for working  the property on a large scale.    With an  abundance of timber and and water at  band, character and extent of. ore and  shipping advantages, the Mother Lode  bids fair to soon become a producer.  A valuable find of   free   goid.'.iros  made this week in the R. D. T. cla'iiu,:  adjoining the Hartford claim in Wel-_  lington camp.   In a 22 foot shaft, where  work is being done by Joe Taylor aiid  Pete Boucher, a two foot ledge was discovered,  that is freely speckled with '  particles of gold, that are easily seen ,  with the naked eye.  .".&-!* I  BOUNDARY MINING!-MOTES.

A NEW IRELAND.  In the September number of the World's Work  Magazine, there appears an illuminating and encouraging article on the present condition of Ireland. It  fepresents Ireland as passing through an awakening  process, giving much encouragement to those who  have-hope in its future. The three chief factors���  one negative and two positive���in this work of rejuvenation are the following :  "The downfall of Paruell and tbe resulting  breakup of the people into waning factions was in  feality the greatest beueSt that has befallen Iretand  for a century. Before tbat Irishmen had been used  to have their thinking done for them, and to buy it  at a penny a week in United Ireland. When P.trnell  fell they began to think for tbeinselvts."  This is the negative factor. Among the influential positive factors, one has been the work of the  .Gaelic League :  " The Gaelic League, which had been preaching  that the use of the Irish language and the pursuit of  strictly Irish ideals were essential to a national life,  - began to draw recruits cbiefly from the young men  of the country. For ten years they have continued  coming in, until to-day the Gaelic League, though  not numerically greater than many political and  agragrtan, leagues that preceded it, is morally,  stronger, has firmer roots, and steadier growth than  almost any Irish league of the century. It bas not  only arrested a rapid decay of the language, but it  has made startling progress in restoring it. . . The  next generation in Ireland will use thir own tongue  for their home language, for their literary language/and to,a great extent for their commercial  language."       _  And the practical bearing of this is thus set  forth :  '-'This idealistic movement propagates industrialism, teaches the people to practice 'mutual self-help  J>y patronizing home products, discourages emigration*, and encourages sobriety. The new Irish industrial spirit has been rendered possible only by tbe  League's teaching.  Then the third factor in tbis regeneration is the industrial revival;  ''This industrial revival h s been growing for five  years, aud is now well   under  way.    Unthinkingly,  --���we-were sending out of-Ireland-every-year-millions of  pounds for commodities which we uot only could  make,'but were making as well and as cheaply ourselves. But Irish manufacturers waited for customers to come to them, while Irish merchants welcomed  foreign   manufacturers  who  brought things to their  .. doors ; and the masses bought any article that served  their purpose, not caring whence it came. The  Gaelic Leaguers took hold of the matter," with the  result tbat "although industry is far from normal,  there is a promise of vastly increased employment for  Irish bpys and girls, which must help to stem the  tide of emigration," and mucn has already been done  in the providing of industrial opportunities.  Ireland  has doubtless  suffered much injury from  , the repressive legislation that has been enacted during the seven hundred and thirty-two years that have  elapsed siuce first an English army set foot in Ireland. This is now, and has for some time past been,  replaced by legislation of a different kind, passed in a  different spirit, and with tbe impetus given to her advancement by the forces mentioned, Ireland will yet  and in the near future become a "new Ireland" in  reality. The Irish are kin to the Scottish people,  have largely the same nation al characteristics, and  have a country that has really gieater natural advantages than Scotland possesses, and uuderthe rejuvenating spirit that is now awakening in Ireland, her  people will vie with those across the narrow channel  in all those things that tell" of civilization and progressive development  for reciprocity with Canada. In articles on this movement which appear in newspapers and magazines in  the United States. Canada is generally represented as  exceedingly desirous of reciprocal trade relations with  its Southern neighbors. The time doubtless was,  some twenty years ago, when the Dominion would  have welcomed a fair treaty of reciprocity with the  the United Stetes. We have no reference to the  movement in favor of Commercial Union or Unrestricted Reciprocity on which the present Government  Party went to the polls and were so badly defeated  that this cry then receive-*! an effectual quietus for  ever. It is dead beyond the possibility of a resurrection of it. But a fair measure of reciprocity wou'd  then and for some time after that have been welcomed  by many, it may be the.majority of Canadians. Such  a treaty was, however, denied to Canada, and in terms  which savored of insolence. In tbe meantime, Canada has grown self-reliant and has come to realize  that her true future lies not in closer trade relations  with the United States, but with the Mother Country.  Concerning this cry in many of the Northern states  for reciprocal trade relations with Canada, of which  we hear so much at present, the Montreal Star in a  recent issue well says :  "The loud cry for reciprocity with Canada that  comes from New England attracts no attention in this  country���not even in the Maritime Provinces. Down  by the sea people were, once upon a time, the  strongest advocates of such a measure. Iu Quebec  the matter is not referred to. The silence of the Toronto GIob<s on the subject may be constrained, but it  is very real. It is not much over a decade since that  paper would have welcomed the existing situation in  New England with clamorous approval. The chief  government organ of to-day, to say the least, does not  consider this the time to speak. Its attitude to-day  shows a marked contrast v\ hen compared to its utterances of i8or.    Then that paper (on Feb. 7) said :  'Unrestricted trade���free trade in manufactures, as  well as in natural products���which is the policy of  the Liberal party and the policy of Blaine and Carlisle,  is the only form of reciprocity tbat would be just and  equitable all round. It possesses the transcendent  merit also of being the only reciprocity that can be  got from the United States, and for all these reasons  is the only scheme for which tbe Cauadiau farmers  can consistently vote."'  "The national strides of Canada in twelve years are  not to be better appreciated than by a reference to the  advancement of the people and parties in tariff matters. Reciprocity at one time was the goal ot both  parties, althoughJhe  Conservatives  stigmatised  the  'unrestricted' and 'coir.mercial union' .varieties as un-  1  British and anti-Canadun. And so the people voted ;  and so they have continued to vote. The indifference  o f the Canadian people to these New England reciproo  ity calls proclaims the growing British tieandstrength  that such a sure bulwark nourishes."  What indeed'would seem to be stimulating our  neighbors to advocate reciprocal trade relations with'  Canada is their observation ofthe fact of the growing  aloofness of Canada from the United' States in trade  matters, notwithstanding the fact that Canada last  year imported from the United States goods to the  amount of one hundred and fifty millions of dollars���  the knowledge that if the Conservative party is re-  _turned to power at the forthcoming election, tbe Can-  . adian tariff will without delay be so arranged that by  'far the greater part ofsuch imported goods will.be  manufactured in Canada or brought in from the  Mother Country, and a very valuable market be thus  lost by the manufacturers of the United States.. They  are increasingly realizing that the trend of Canadian  opinion is markedly towards a higher protective  tariff���such a protective tariff as will effectively prevent Canada being made a dumping ground for the  surplus manufactured goods of the United States, and  will render a fair preference to the Mother Country  and still leave a real protection to Canadian manufacturers.  *������������������*�������������+< *���������� ������������������*��*��**�� ��*��4��^�� ���������<- *������������  FALL STYLES I ' ^- rn-Uy I Ln,  Insurance    Real   Estate   and  Mining  Agent  Houses and offices to rent and lots for sale in all parts of the city. ���  Now is the time to invest in good  Ranch Property  The Kootenay Valleys Co., L'td, London, Eng.

" No," retorted Sir John, '�� nor paddle  -with the same skulls, either."  Captain r.Cuttle's famous watch,  ���which wbtilcl keep "correct" time only  by various shakings and shiftings  of the hands during the day, is  matched by a Yorkshireraan's* clock.  He resented the imputation that there  was anything wrong with it. "It goes  reefc eneu for thim that knauhowt'  read it," he said ; "when its hands are  at twelve, it strikes two. and then aw  ���inau its half "past seven." -  "Lord kitchener of the British army  recently made an army order placing  'the   regimental schoolmaster at the  disposal of  officers that they might  h a ve an oppbrtu n i ty to* com plete thei r  elementary  educations ��� a  good    instance of his grim humor.     But it has  often   been   demonstrated'  that  the  schoolmaster   is   needed  among .the  British  oflicers.    Some, queer, quanlt  efforts at  composition have been made  in brigade orders.   A certain major ordained not long ago that: "Reveille  will be at 3.30 a. m.     The brigade will  parade at 4 a. in. The brigade will move  at 4.15 a. m.    The sun  will rise at 5 a.  m."   It was during the guerrilla war of  1901-2, after the building of the blockhouses,  that it  became necessary to  check the habit of ithe. men of sleeping  outside the blockhouses for the sake of  coolness and comfort.     A certain staff  officer thereupon issued the following  "quaintorder:, '"No one is. permitted to  sleep outside the blockhouses except  the sentries.!' ; Thirdly, though the intention of this order is clear, its phraseology is not: "Men on outpost duty  are forbidden to strike matches on the  sky-line.'.'  -  ��*^�����^  SMOKE  THE   CELEBRATED  BRiAR   PIPES.
