Jackson ol* Toronto, who purchased tbe  property some two years ago. Tbe  Alma group i.s considered one of tbe  most promising galena properties in  this section, a showing of galena 4 feet  iu width in a contact ��� between lime  and shale being one of the prominent  features. The property lias splendid  tunnel-ad vantages which will admit of  work being carried on at a very moderate cost. Mr. jNIcCrossan has formed a  stock company under the name of tlie  Alma "Mining company, which will  start active operation!- with a large  force ofiucn iu the early spring.''  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Plioculx Pioneer.  The second locomotive for hauliug  slag at the Granby smelter was shipped  from    Sherbrooke,    Quebec,    liy the  Jeuckea Machine Co. this week.  A contract lias been let by the R.ith-  mullen Co. for cutting wood, preparatory to the resuming of development  on the company's claims in Summit  camp.  The No. 2 steam shovel, recently put  'to work at the Granby mines, is doiug  satisfactory work in the No. 1 pit. The  No. 3 shovel is expected to be shipped  from the manufacturers, at Lorain,  Ohio, the latter part of this month.-  Five men and teams arc afwoffc'ori  the Senator, in Summit camp, which  was recently bonded by tlie Granby- in.-  ��� teresls. Tlie ledge is being stripped  preparatory to getting out ore. Johu  Rogers is in charge ofthe work.  G. Arthur Keridell, of Eholt, who  bas a lease on the Ethiopia, in Lous;  Lake camp, has a force 'of three men  working on development. This is  another high grade property that-will  shortly begin shipping to the local  smelters.  Work has been started on a raise in  the Granby   mines from   the   No. 2  is tlio making of a mine in the Atlin.  Congratulations, Tat, and more power  to yonr perseverance.  The output of the Wilcox mine last  month was the best in its history. The  amount saved on the plates is represented by a gold brick weighing 325  ounces and of an approximate value of  $4,000. In addition to this amount  two and a half carloads of rich galena  ore have been shipped to tuc Nelson  smelter, the net proceeds on which  amoun t to approximately $2,500. Con-.  centi*ate3 shipped amount farther to  ovocJjoOO net value, making tbe total  output of the mine over $7,000 for the  month. The running expenses arein  the: neighborhood of 52,000 pur month,  so that the company is making a pro-  litof $'>,000 on the run. During tbo  month ore from the "Wilcox vein was  put through the mill for the first time  and the brick produced ia therefore  j partly from the Wilcox vein aud partly  from the Fourth of July vein, which  la tier lias hitherto supplied the whole  of the mill feed. The Wilcox orecar-  lies a far larger proportion of gold to  silver than does the Fourth of July, so  that tliis month's brick ia richer per  on nco.

Theiinal payment on the bond ou  the Elkhorn, in Providence camp, is to  be made on December 1st, and will be  made from the profits from shipments  of ore "from that property. This is one  of the high grade mines of the Boundary .that lias beeu making an hivisblc  record.  Preparations have been made at the  Betts and Hesperus mines for continuing work all winter. The property is  being operated by a Chicago com pun J,  a shipment having already been niude  to the Granby smelter, from wbieli  good returns are reported to have been  realized.

The Mercury and Rouse properties  have shut down.   . _  The ore exports of the Slocan have  passed Lho 13,090 ton figure.  Tlie Wakefield concentrator has  been shut down for the winter.  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  The "Vancouver News-Advertiser gives the following account of the Houston incident :   " During the  electoral campaign   that closes to day a great deal of  political capital lias been  attempted  to be made  by  "Opposition speakers and writers out of what is known  as the   'Houston  incident,'with the idea  that such  a course might aid tlieir efforts to defeat Mr. Wilson.  We have" not referred to  this matter before during  the campaign because we thought that  the  incident  was one that for many reasons should not be dragged'  forward for i indiscriminate discussion and we arecon-  v inced that to day many Liberal voters will endorse  this view by casting tlieir .ballots for  the  Attorney-  General.     There is no doubt that considerable mis-^  apprehension exists -in the minds of the public as to  the nature of the incident and the esponsibility of the  Govern ment in connection  with the  action of His  Honor, the Lieutenant Governor, iu declining to accept Mr. Houston as one of his present advisers.    Indeed  this was almost inevitable since the Opposition  advocates n-j-turally distorted the facts for thepurpose  of presenting  a case  entirely different  from-the real  circumstances."   Frcm what has appeared-in Nelson  newspapers ; from statements  attributed (we  are inclined to think improperly) to Mr. Houston himself,  and from the contents of an open letter addressed to  His Honor by Mr. Joseph Martin, the conclusion appears to have been drawn that the objection to,Mr.  Houston was based on the statement that he was in a  condition of intoxication while a member on the floor  of  the house."     Although  Mr.   Houston's conduct  may be attributed to such a cause, we are not aware  that any official cognizance was taken to the fact as  such.      Mr.   Houston did violently -transgress  the  To enable its readers to understand His Honor's  action more clearly, the News-Advertiser gives some  extracts from the report of the matter that appeared  in the papers of that "'time.

A great deal of ore passed through  here this week from the Wakefield,  there being seven loads in all.

There is little doubt that there' heen reached  to press reports, and owing to the weakness of the*  Governmentat that time, the matter vvas  allowed to  pass without any action being taken.    It is now held  by some persons that His Honor should at that time.  liave signified his dissapproval of such conduct'and  not   have waited until now to give expression to his  v iews upon it.. 13ut no intelligent *.erson, acquainted  with the situation and the position which the representative of the Crown   occupies to the  Legislature  a r.d the members of that body, would support such a,  contention.     As we pointed out in an article on November i st,  the jSppaker._of the Assembly and the  head of the Government, as the Leader of the House,  and  not   His"   Honor,  were the  guardians of   the  privileges of the House and responsible for the preservation of its dignity.      Mr.  Houston was then a  private member of the  House  and the Lieutenant-  Governor prope,ly did not, and constitutionally could  not interfere with a matter strictly connected with the  internal conduct of lhat body and within the solecou-  trol of its self appointed leaders and officials.    But, as  we  pointed out in the article referred to, when Mr.  Houston came to be selected by the Premier as one of  his colleagues, the matter assumed a completely new.,  aspect   and   the Lieutenant-Governor- was entirely  within the limits of his prerogative in declining to be  advised by one, who, he considered, had violated the  rules of the House.    Of course, technicall}-- speaking,  His Honor cannot be held responsible for the rejection  of Mr. Houston, and, therefore, technically speaking,.  the Premier must assume such responsibility:. ':* But  no one  can reasonably   attach responsibility  to the  Government forth"? attitude taken by  His Honor,  a number, of   While the incident is without exact precedent, it is a  matter of common knowledge, to those familiar with  constitutional events, that  the-Sovereign or  his-rep*'  reseutatives have again and again disapproved of the.  choice of colleagues made by the head of the Execu.  live.     Publicity to such facts  has,  however, been  spared for the reason that most men who found thein-  sslves in such a position did not possess the temperament of the member for Nelson and did not desire to  make public ���.what  they considered  their grievance  against the -Sovereign or his representatives.    In this  really consists the cause of all the notoriety which has  distinguished this incident from many similar ones  J in thepasL"  The performances given by the Clara Mathes company at the Opera House this week have been  thoroughly enjoyed by those present. There have  been some changesJin the company' since it appeared  here in -July. Of those most missed is Miss Emma  Mathes, the pleasing^soubrette. This young woman  is taking a rest for this season. The additions to the  company are more or less talented, and have been,  selected by the manager with a view to their fitness  for the line of plays tliat are 'to be given'this season.  Ofth'e plays given during the week, one of the best  was "Tennessee's Partner,M. on Tuesday evening.  This play deals with a phase of mining life so genera  in the'early days in Nevada- and ��� California. - The  hero is a gambler, who alwaj-s "dealt" his cards" from  the top.. The part is taken by Mr. Lawerence, and  certaiuly he play'sthe -role true to life. This gentleman has done a.great many acceptable things here,  but he has done" nothing equal to the part of the  gambler in "Tennessee's Partner." Indeed tbe  whole company appears to-be well adapted to the  production of this piece." Of course Miss Clara  Mathes plays the.lieroiue just as the-autbor intended  it should be plaj'ed. She has the dialeet to perfection,  and never misses an opportunity of getting everything there is iu her part out of-it.; * Miss Mathes enjoys the enviable distinction of being the most capable  woman playing-repertoire in the west.     Mr. Roberts  in "Tennessee'.s Paltrier'"'is-well done. Of the new  members of the,company a good word might be said  for Mr. Norton. As Geewhilllker Hay he kept.the  audience in continual roars bf laughter.  "Resurrection," given last night by the Clara  Mathes company, drew a large house. The best work  in the piece was done by Miss Mathes, Mr. Lawrence  and "Mr. Roberts.. The play is a strong one, and  taxes the full strength of the company in its production.  It is a subject of general comment that the officials  of the Nelson Tramway Company know bow. to look  after the comfort of their patrons. Stepping into one  of their cars these days is like walking into a coba-  fortably heated room. Women and children particularly appreciate this consideration for their comfort..

The announcement that the Canadian Pacific will keep their line open  to Poplar this winter will be greeted  with pleasure. It means a great deal  to the Kootenays that the development  of Poplar, so far as is practicable dor-*  ing tbe winter months, should not  cease. With regular communication  to Poplar the merchants of Nelson  should be able to do a big business-  there this winter.  The Victoria Tourist... Association has devised, a  novel method of .advertising the. resources '��������� of tbe  Province.
