 ap'iiTgs  mm  Hiilg  ^^*^  Tor?'.^  ffi?8S^  VOLUME  VII.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY JUNE 25, 19C4.  ales of the   X own  T,  Tbo turn in the sawmill affair can  only be regarded as a great misfortune  to Nelson.   The ratepayers who voted  for tlie   by-law*   granting .the  ��5,000  bonus to   tho   McGoldrick   company  certainly did so in good faith, and that  the feeling was strongly in favor of securing the mill'is. best evidenced by  the majority by which the by-law was  ���carried.    Wc are not  going to contend  that the agreement-was exactly what  it should have been, but we do believe  that once the by-law received the en-  dorsation of t!ie people  there should  have been  no further demands made  upon the company.   Mr.  McGoldrick  was  only   asked   to   perform certain  things, and it was unwise aud unfair,  after the by-law was passed, to ask him  to load up the agreement with all kinds  of extra conditions.   If these matters  had been brought to the attention of  Mr. McGoldrick before the by-law was  submitted   to the people, it is quite  probable that they   could have been  ���amicably arranged,   but as a business  ���.man he no doubt felt that it was not.  ^reasonable to ask him to depart from,  ���the original arrangement.   Of course it  -looks an insignificant thing to raise  "trouble over, but business nieli are apt  ���to   regard   with suspicion    even _ so  ���trilling   a    mutter     in   -an     agree-  -ment with a corporation.   We do not  ��� know who suggested this demand ou  'the company, but we do realize that  Uhey will never be able to undo the injury that has been clone the city.   It  ���will not sound well on the outside that  '���the city   council of Nelson is in the  'habit ol" breaking faith with those with  whom ic may have business dealings.  Some other town may now get   the  mill, in  which event  the citizens of  Nelson will bo pvovidod with  the*opportunity iu yours to come of contemplating the iniquity of a corporation  that failed to fulfil its agreement, and  thus lost'to the city a great industry.  old home at Keinptville, He arrived  on an early afternoon train and made  his way to the home of his sister. He  inquired for many ofthe friends of liis  boyhood, and on learning 'that they  were all or nearly all dead, he took the  next train for his home in the west,  having only remained a few~bours in  his native town. He was held in high  esteem by everyone who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.  ;'NtrMBip|ii^^B  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  R. W. Drew, of the C. P. B.,' and  Mrs. Drew .and family, have just returned frora.a trip to the east, extending over a month. They visited Kingston and Renfrew, the latter place Deing  the former home of Mrs. Drew. Mr.  Drew observed great chaDges in the  east since he left there a few years ago.  The farmers appeal* to be all prosperous  and conditious generally have changed  for the better.  Capt. McMorris, city clerk, has been  given a month's leave of absence,  which time he is spending, at Kamloops. Capt.-McMorris - bas not been  well for sometime, and it is hoped that  his rest will completely" restore him to  health.  "With a dignity admirably suited to  "the occasion, *Wiu. E. McCandlish, sr.,  ���is acknowledging the congratulations  ���of his many friends" over the recent  honor of becoming a grandparent. The  event which resulted in   this honor to  an old and respected citizen"'occurred  on Sunday last, whon the wife of "W.  E. McCandlish, jr., gave birth to. a  bright boy. Tlie latest addition to the  McCandlish family will climb the ladder of fame under tlie name of Lome  Milton, after the Duke of Argyle and  the great English poet, and if he follows in the footsteps of those two distinguished men;' ho will: fully satisfy  ���the ambition of his Tory grandfather.  There will be much regret expressed  at the death  of John Fannin, which  ���occurred at Victoria, last week.   In his  ���own  way John Fannin did much to  ���make    known   the   wonders  of   the  .^Province of   British   Columbia.     On  ;account of his knowledge of the various species of animals and birds to be  -found in   British   Columbia   he  was  ���giyen the position of curator of the  ^Provincial-   museum,   an   institution  ���which grew up under, his charge until  *now it is regarded as one of the most  notable of its kind in the Dominion of  ���Canada.    Visiting -representatives of  inuseums   from   other   parts of   the  World have been loud in their praise of  "the  collection made by Mr.  Fannin.  Deceased was a contributor-to many  ^publications,    notably    Forest    and  ^Stream, one of the leading authorities  ofthe world.   He was born in Kempt-  ville, Ont., on July 27, 1837, but came  to ihis Province in 1SG2 with a hand of  : adventurous  spirits,   amongst  whom  were J. A.  Maia,  R.  B. McMicking  (father of Mrs. Robert Renwick of this  cijy), G. T.

The committees in charge of  the celebration are working hard, and  are satisfied that tbe event will he  equal to any former oue held in the  Kootenays. There will be several new  features this year, with the desire of  adding to the novelty ofthe affair.  It is quite likely there will be many  vjsitors in the city during the two  days' celebration, and no doubt they  will return home with the impression  that the citizens of Nelson know how  to entertain their guests. ���  The Revelstoke lacrosse team,wnich  is to play in Nelson during the-forthcoming celebration, is said to be a great  improvement on the team which  played here a year ago. The weal-  points have been strengthened, and the  Nelson players may not find it quite so  easy to defeat the new combination as  they did the old one.  Hon. D. "W. Higgins has left Victoria for Toronto, where he will coufer  with the William Briggs company regarding the forthcoming issue of his  book of reminiscences of theearly days  of British Columbia, which have been  published from time to time in the  Victoria Colonist. Mr. Higgins has received flattering encouragement, and  it is not improbable that he may arrange for simultaneous publication in  England:  ���* *  Again it becomes our melancholy  duty to report that "Prof." Hepburn  has now sojourned three weeks at  Grank Forks, and so far has not had  one of those pleasing birthday anniversaries, which are now regarded  as among the most enjoyable features  in connection with a visitof a month  or so from the "professor."

Miss K. Scanlan and Miss B. Thorn  left this morning for the St. Louis exhibition.  No decision has yet been given in  the Crow's Nest damage suits.  In the debate in the House of Commons on the Dundonald incident, Mr.  Rufus Pope, of Compton, took a vigorous hand. Indeed Mr. Pope is always  vigorous^ He paid his compliments to  the minister of agriculture in these  words: ".This minister is a gallant  officer. True, ho has never passed any  examination. True, he has never  foughtany battle for his country. True,  he lias never substantiated-auy principle that he ever fought upon. But  nevertheless he is supposed to be a  gallant soldier. He found, perhaps for  the benefit of his health, perhaps because he had been promoted to a high  position as a member ot this government, and became to some extent an  aristocrat, that it was incumbent on  him to own a saddle horse. He bough t  one. This horse was not easy to ride  and you can understand, as well as J  can that a man who has toiled, hard  and long upon the farm, pulling weeds  and hoeing corn and digging away and  spreading manure, is not suited to a  horse that is not docile and is to a  certain extent cumbersome. It was  suggested to a gentleman who was  keeping a livery stable in Ottawa that  exercise might be giveu to his horse,  and he went to the minister of agriculture. It was intimated to the minister that the volunteers were about to  go forth in their annual drill and that  somebody might be induced to ride  " this horse and pay him for its use, and  being a great financier as well as a J  patriot and a man of war, he determined that his horse should serve the  country, something he had never done,  a-id that he should get paid for-its  use. The double temptation was great  and the horse went forth to battle. He  battled for twelve days, which is the  rule in this country, and fought those  imaginary battles that are fought under these conditions, and then returned.  As you know the volunteer, the man  who learnshis buisness and goes forth  into these imaginary battles receives  for himself and his horse ��1.50 a day,  and if you multiply that by 12, you  will find that he, gets ��18 altogether.  That is what the man got for himself  and the horse belonging to the minister of agriculture. Well, when the  man came to the Hon Mr. Fisher he  gobbled up the whole $18, all the man  got, as his (Fisher's) tax for the use of  his horse. How the man lived'with  an empty pocket did not concern the  gallant minister of agricnlture."  The house roared as Mr. Pope described this incident, but Hon. Mr.  Fisher, who was .in his place, did not  deny the truth of the story. Perhaps  later in the session he will read a typewritten reply, prepared and put in his  hand, just as hedid with respect to the  Dundonald. matter and probably with  like unfortunate results.

This organization, always the leaders  in the minstrel field, this season present an entire new program of two and  one half hoursof solid enjoyment. The  press throughout the country where  they have appeared this season unite  in saying it is the best show ever  given under the banner of this well  known management. The managers  of this organization long ago ago discarded all worn ont features so tenaciously clung to by many other minstrel organizations. No more will a  comedian endeavor to arouse a laugh  by removing twenty vests. The personnel of this organization is made up  of the brightest young men of talent of  their race and embraces such well  known names as Clarence Powell, Billy  Lonise Michel, much broken in appearance from the severe strain from a  recent illness, has just given in the  Hotel des Sccieties Savantes in Paris,  a lecture in which she described her  feelings when she believed herself to be  dying.  " My will was absolutely gone," she  said. " I observed myself as dispassionately as though I- were another  being. All material things became  vague. But my impressions grew  powerfully acute���my senses became  externalized, as it were. I recollected  a similar experience I had in New  Caledonia d uring a cyclone. The heavens were black, the sea was black and  it seemed to me that from the depths  of the sea rose a profound power of  attraction. It was as ifwe had existed  iu the elements and death was only a  return to them. Thought made impression in symbols and language was  no longer possible. The warjn which  I was engrossed appeared to -me as a  vast stain of blood. -The future was an  indistinguishable mass, in which different epochs loomed like the summits  of a mountain" range. Beyond there  appeared lhe new horizon where truth  shone for all. What restored mc to  health, was the universal sympathy  extended to me, with which I felt myself in constant communication. Now  that I am well, I shall continue my  lectures, for my one desire is to diminish the haired between people who  think."  The location of an ore body at the  St. Eugene carrying higber values in  silver than anything yet discovered, is  regarded by mining men as the most  important mining news of the month.  ���A - despatch- dated~Junc~ 18th,_says  over ��3,000,000 in gold dust has been  shipped from Dawson by the Alaska  Pacific Express Company.  The report from Winnipeg that at a  recent sale of British Columbia strawberries the opinion was freely expressed that the fruit was the best yet  seen on that market, will be pleasing  news to local fruit-growers. Some complaint, however, is made as to the  packing. The boxes used were the  shallow ones and they were not full  enough and the berries were uot faced.  This not only increased the chance of  injury to the fruit, but took considerable from tlie appearance of the packages when opened, and they were five  pounds lighter in weight than the ordinary case. It is a question whether  the shallow square box is a very desirable package.  Thecity council has decided to put  down a 24-inch brick sewer along  Ward street from the lane above Baker  street to the corner of Ward and Vernon streets, at a cost of $2,000.  The fire brigade are training every  night for the hose reel competitions  and hope to be able to give visiting  teams a good run for their money.

Some beautiful ore is being exhibited  from a late find' on the Mavis by  Messrs. Kane and Trainner. They are  much encouraged in their preliminary  de velopmen t work.  As soon as Manager Shallenberger  returns from Minneapolis, development is to start on the Moreen, Dead-  wood camp, ��� recently purchased by  Minneapolis capitalists.  Messrs. Miller and Armstrong,;who  recently bonded the Barbara in Mayor  Naden's back yard, at Greenwood,  have put a force of men at work. The  showing is said to be good.  President S. H. C. Miner, of the  Granby Co., is expected to arrive in  the Boundary the latter part of the  month, on his annual trip of inspection  of the properties of his company.  Last month at one time 446 men  were on the payroll at the Granby  mines, the highest, in the history of  the property. .The number emplpyed  now.is somewhat less for the time being.  Woik is now proceeding underground at the Mother Lode mine,  where it i.s understood that the ore is  of better grade than iu the open quarries. The force of men employed at  this property continues to average100  men.  F. D. Tower, of a Marquette, Mich.,  smelter, and L. C. Barlow, an engineer  of the same place, arrived in the Boundary Sunday, and are making headquarters at^JJie yolcanic_mlne,_w_hile_  making examinations of the properties  in this section.  It is said that the Iron Clad, Wellington camp, is showing up better thtfn  ever this week, the ore being almost  identical with that of the Athelstan. A  flattering offer for the claim was refused this week by the owners, Messrs.  Rurnberger, Porter and Farrell.  ��� A. J. McMillan, managing director  of the Le Roi and Snowshoe companies, cebled to the old country recently that work was beginning on the  Great Northern branch to Phoenix,  which would give this camp access to  (he Northport smelter, and admit of  Snowshoe ore being treated there.  Boylcs Bros, have completed their  diamond drilling contract at the Volcanic mine and have removed the outfit to Orient, Wash. The officials of  tbe Volcanic who recently visited the  property, from Michigan, arc said to  have been .so pleased with the showing that the payments on the bond are  likely to be met on time. If this is  done, it will give no small impetus to  North Fork properties.  SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  ���������" ,S��VS��  -__ \-*-.'iz-rfc  |    F. C. Green.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  If the Dominion ministers imagine any dust-  throwing, talking of constitutional government and  di-cipline, will cloud the real issues raised by the disgusting and disgraceful incident of the dismissal of  lord Dundonald they will soon 'earn   their mistake.  First, we have the brutally frank admission, by the  Premier as well as by Mr. Fisher, that there is no  intention of keeping the military administration free  from party politics, that commissions are regarded as  favors to be used as govern ment patronage, that the  Liberal member for, presumably, any district must be  consulted as to the choice of officers of a district bat-  tallion, and that members of the Cabinet niaj-, without any pretence of other than personal reasons, cancel or amend the recommendations of the professional  head of a department. If the electors of Canada are pre-"  pared to endorse these views, the sooner the militia is  abolished the better ; il cannot possibly attain any  efficiency under such ciicumstances, it involves an  annual waste of public money, and it constitutes a  grave menace as an instrument for further political  corruption.  An incidental feature of the affair was the shameless, lying of the Cabinet ministers iu their explanations to the House. Mr. Fisher stated solemnly  that the want of qualification was the ground for his  interference, but when, a few minutes later, he lost his  temper, he admitted tbat bis motive had been political. Sir Wilfrid's special pleading for the right ofthe  Cabinet Council to supervise all appointments for the  public welfare was flagrantly dishonest, unless indeed,  as seems not unlikely, the dispensing of patronage,  is regarded as the chief business of the government.  Now we have I��ord Dundonald's further charge that  tbis incident is only one of many, that Cabinet Ministers and private Liberal members, in seeking party  advantage, have hampered all his efforts for the improvement of the force, and that Sir Frederick Borden bus repeatedly lied to the House of Commons in  answering-questions about his department. The  danger in all this is that the country may_ be-,  come indifferent* to official dishonesty; the  premier and his present colleagues have certainly  done their utmost to disa buse the country of any notion of public honesty. Less than a mouth ago Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was forced to admit that he had as-  sured Mr. Borden tbat all documents bearing on a  - certain question were before the House, while he had  had other documents in his possession. This callous  indifference to truth and honor is the most degrading  feature in Canadian politics.  But even the cowardly treatment of a gallant and  patriot c soidier. the corruption and abuse of the national militia, and the degradation of our parliamentary institutions, are altogether less startling than the  revelation of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's political sentiments and aims by his contemptuous epithet of "foreigner," applied in a British nation to the chief representative of the British army. The use ofthe word  might be condoned as an indiscretion, due to excitement and anger,but unfoitunately it harmonizes perfectly with every act of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's political  Career, since he declared iu 18S5 that were he on the  banks of the Saskatchewan he would shoulder a  musket with the rebel, Louis Riel.  Sir Wilfrid will accept titles and medals, and make  meaniugles speeches about the empire, but there can  be no doubt that his aim is separation from the  Mother Country of the British race, and the domination of independent Canada by the " solid vote " of  Quebec, to which he bas owed his political existence.  It rests with the English speaking Liberals, the English, Irish aud Scotch, the "foreign" element of the  Liberal party, to sa3' how far their French leader  ?J��11 go in his campaign of treachery nnd disloyalty.  The mother-in-law has been completely vindicated  by President Joseph F. Smith ofthe Mormon church,  who must be conceded to bean expert on mothers-in-  law. ': I want tosay right here," said tbe-prophet in  an address in the tabernacle recently, "that tbe best  friends I evei had were my mothers-in-law. I loved  and honored them aud shall ever hold their memory  sacred." When a man with a hunch of them speaks  tht'F, the ircll:er-in-law joke should be called in.  A little over a year ago Robert Gamey was an obscure insurance agent in a remote corner of Ontario.  To-day be is one of the most prominent political characters in the Dominion of Canada. One Ontario pa-  pir credits the mau from Manitoulin with having  practically smashed the Ross Government single-  handed. His pluck is immense, as his individual  fight against the Ross Government, the Grit press, a  horde of unscrupulous officials, and the two eminent  commissioners, demonstrate. Mr. Gamey, despite  these immense odds, has beaten his opponents. Alone  he has defied them, daring them to meet him. Not  one dared lo accept his challenge. He told his  enemies and persecutors that the people were the  final tribunal, and to them he would appeal. He has  done so and throughout Ontario the peop'.e attended  bis meetings and went away convinced of the truth of  his statements. To day Mr. Gamey has the public  behind him, for the people know his story of the  Stratton scandal to be true.

The figures should have been one hundred snd fifty million,  a difference of a trifle like one -hundred and forty-  : eight million five hundred thousand, not much in an  office like The Economist, where large sums of  money are continually passing back and forth over  the counter, but considerable to those who are not  accustomed  to handling bills of  vast denominations.  According to the report recently issued by Vice-  President Wbyte of the C. P. R., crop conditions  throughout Western Canada are everything that  could be desired. The fear that the backwardness  of the season would have a bad effect has been dispelled, and it now seems as if ''the harvest will be  larger and better than in former years.

NELSON, B. C-  P. O. BOX 223  FERGU  A ladies' millitary company frcm Malone, N. Y.,  will visit Ottawa on Dominion Day. It will say very  little for the chivalric spirit of the Canadian militia if  an attempt is not made to capture the fair visitors.  ~It~is~I godoAthiiigAIiat Lord Dundonald gave his  statement to Colonel Hughes as well as to the minister of militia. If he had not replied in this way lo  the question of Colonel Hughes all the inconvenient  portions of his statement would probably have been  withheld from the public as confidential papers.  The question of theatricals under Church auspices  was dealt with at the American rurideacanal conference, England. Rev. W. G. Gilliat, rector of Iver,  said the Church should keep clear of theatricals. They  can do no good, and they might prove the means of  implanting in the j'oung a taste for such things. Rev.  EI. O. F. Whittingstal!, rector of Chalfont.St. Giles,  admitted that he once shared these views with regard  to theatricals, but he now considered that they had  no right to bar everything that lay off the direct path  of religion. The theatre could be used to the service  of Christ, just the same as cricket and football.  Dun's Review reports the wholesale trade of Canada as not especially active. While the near approach of midsummer may parti}-- account for this  still, the fact appears to be generally recognized that  business as a whole for the half-year just about closing  will be materially short ofthe figures for the corresponding period of 1903.  T hat J. Pierpont Morgan should be ill and the New-  York stock market firm and active is one of the surprises lo the financial world. The opinion prevailing  in former years that Morgan and the Stock market  meant one and the same thing seems to have undergone a gradual but relentless revision.  v T  terior.  NELSON, B.

How does the Globe know that Sir  Wilfrid Laurier did not mean foreigner  when he said "foreigner?" ' Sir Wilfrid  has not said so. There is no authority  for the explanation. The Globe is not  a mind reader. The Globe and all tbe  Grit newspapers have told us many  times how clever Sir Wilfrid was as a  first-class English scholar, and had a  most intimate knowledge of the English language and now the Globe seeks  to make somebody believe that he  doesn't know the meaning of the word  " foreigner"���a very common   word,  and one which   Sir Wilfrid has fre  quently used.  Hamilton Spectator.  The- Toronto Globe thinks it worth  while to put Hansard into the witness  box to "prove" that Sir Wilfrid'did not  mean what he said when he called  Lord Dundonald a "foreigner." But  Hansard, is utterly unreliable as a witness. Each speaker bas opportunity  to revise his speech.as reported by the  stenographers, and if there is an ything  in it he thinks, in cooler moments, he  should not have said.he alters it to  suit his second thought. If anything  is omitted, which he thinks should be  added, he adds it, Aud this garbled  stuff is sent out as a report of the  speeches in the commons and is quoted  by the Globe as unimpeachable evidence of what was said ! 'There can be  no doubt that, after the rebuke he * received from the opposition, when he-  used the word "foreigner," and afterward substituted the very little less ol>-  jestionable word " stranger," Sir Wilfrid carefully revised his speech as reported, and made it read to suit hi* ji  new ideas.
