He  added: "I didn't see the cherries or raspberries or gooseberries, but if they compare with the applets, pears and plums,  you have here a trult country uuaurpusmd .<  by anything ii. the Dominion."  ---J  <%  LOKD NELSON'S  YEAR  Interesting Facts Regarding-  the Great Sailor.  Henry J. Morgan writes as follows  to tlie Ottawa Citizen regarding the  Nelson centennial:��� .  *  Canadians of sill origins must feel indebted to Senator Domville, for taking  the initiative towards securing a suitable celebration, by the people and parliament of Canada, of the contennial  anniversary of the dcatli of Nels.ni,  England's and the world's greatest naval hero.  Ijdo not know what form the patriotic senator's celebration is proposed to  take, but I have no doubt, from the  many expressions of approval in reference to it, that have' come" to me, that  whatever may be done in  the matter  now or hereafter, if at all commensurate with'the demands of the occasion  will be heartily endorsed by all classes  of the king's subjects in Canada.    The  world has but one Nelson, as she lias  but one   Shakespeare, and it  is the  proud  privilege of the great nation to  which we  Canadians bave  the honor  to belong, that we can;claim both  immortals as among our very own.     Eut  while ;the sweet bard of Avon knew  nought, -"r very little,  of   this New  World in which we live,. Nelson on the  other  hand, cruised and commanded  in our waters, and was so enamored of  the country and its people, or, at least  of one of them, that he was quite willing to forsake all the glories of his profession, and dwell, lovingly, ever afterwards, with a little native maid, on the  shores of the St. Lawrence.     Happily  for Nelson himself, perhaps, and also  for ��� mankind   at   large, i his   Quebec  beauty did not see eye to eye with bim'  in   this  instance, and  Nelson, almost  perforce, went back  to  his ship and  thence to'Trafalgar.    Sometimes when  reading of the lavish homage which, if  nothing else was paid  by the English  people  to Lady Hamilton, because of  her influence for good over  tbe great  sea captain, I have wondered, if, in all  fairness, some small portion of it was  not fairly  due  to Mary  Simpson,.of  Quebec, she being the first of his sweethearts to keep him to tbe straight path  of    duty���though quite  unconscious,  doubtless, at the time, of tbo tremendous service she was  rendering to her  =coun try.���"It-Ms^not^on =^rccord.Hh=be-H  lieve, tbat Nelson vvas ever in  Montreal, but he certainly visited Halifax,  where, as at Quebec, he made  many  friends, though his stay was necessarily  short at both places.    Afler he had assumed command of the Mediterranean  licet, he came more before the  public  eye.    The success and brilliancy of his  achievements, as well as his own  innate qualities, made him the idol of  the nation.    But bis cause, also, was  popular, especially so in Canada, where  solemn Te Dennis were sung iu the  Catholic churches to celebrate his victories over the common foe.   Although  many years have passed since the occurrence, I can still remember con versing with an aged citizen  of Quebec,  who had heard Mgr, Plessis, one of the  most eloquent and  renowned of the  princes of his church  in this country,  deliver his  famous discourse on  the  battle of the Nile, iu whieh he invoked  the Divine Blessing on the navy of His  *Brilannic Majesty and  its illustrious  leader.     These are some of the things  recalled to mind in  connection  with  Senator Domville's resolution  in the  Senate, and which make it singularly  appropriate for Canada to tuke the lead  in paying honor to the memory of one,  but for whose indomitable courage and  devotion, as Mr.Chamberlain has said,  "the Empire could not have survived  its second childbirth:"    There is, however,  another tie binding Canada to  Nelson's name and  family, whieh  I  have only recently discovered.     It is  one of close blood relationship resulting  from a chance encounter between Mars  and Venus. Among the manj new  citizens of Montreal possessed after the  conquest was a worthy trader named  Frederick Gonncrman who, as Dr.  Campbell tells us in his interesting and  instructive "History of St. Gabriel  Street Church," became a member of  that congregation, together with his  pretty daughter, Dolly. Stationed in  the same city, nt the same period, was  the 101st "Regenient of Foot, one of  whose officers was a young Englishman, Captain Alexander Dalgety, who  became Deputy Assistant Quartermaster-General of the Army and married Miss Gonnerman. Their son, Alexander Dalgety, likewise entered the  army, and, returning to Montreal toith  his regiment, the 89th Foot, h!s' wife  gave birth there to a son, Frederick  Gonnerman Dalgety. This gentleman, according to Burke's Colonial  Gentry, emigrated to Australia in 1834,  where he amassed a large fortune in  mercantile life. Removing to England some time after, he purchased the  estate of Lockerley Hall, formerly  known as Oaklands East Tytherley,  Southampton, and becamea J. P., and  D. L., a county councillor, high sheriff,  lord of the manor, and a. patron of  several living's.'".��� His eldest daughter,  Eliza Blanche, born August 8, 18C0,  married Augusts, 1879, Herbert Horatio, Viscount Trafalgar, eldest son and  heir of the third Earl Nelson. Con-  sequenlly, the daughter of one Canadian and the great grand-daughter of  another Canadian, will, with her husband, in the orditiarycourse of nature,  succeed to all the honors and dignities  won and worn by the immortal Nelson. It may not be out of place to add  to the above that Colonel Reginald  Dalgety.'C. B., who distinguished himself at the battle of Abu Klea, and Colonel Edlriund Dalgety; C: B., whose  'masterly occupation of Dordrecht and  subsequent defence of Wepener, in,the  recent Boer war, gave him such deserved prominence in  the army, were  both  descended  from the  couple first.  .���**���  above mentioned, who married in Montreal, January 15, 1785,  SABBATH  OBSEEVANCE  Work Ahead  for the Lord's  Day Alliance.  TitE Economist, loug regarded the  faithful champion of ''Sabbath Observance," is exceedingly grieved to again  report a flagrant breach of the com  ren would diminish the disease in poor  districts.  He laughed at the theory that consumption was incurable. In 1902, he  said, the disease claimed 50,000 victims,  as against 57,000 in 1892 and 67.000 in  1883. This reduction had been brought  about in spite of the increase in population and the overcrowding in cities.  HOUSTON'S   BAD    BREAK  The  City Solicitor Suspended  and  Reinstated by the M^yor.  Notwithstanding the Tribune's report about false and malicious statements being made as to the suspension  ofthe city solicitor by tiie mayor, the  fact is that Mr. Wilson was suspended,  presumably owing lo an opinion given  by him to the council re the present  trouble, and the mayor was in consultation with S. S. "Taylor, K. C, shortly  after. That His Woiship soon discovered lhe mistake ho hud made und cancelled his suspension does not alter the  fact tbat a suspension was in force, and  every man, woman unci ohild in Nelson  who-knows the two men will accept  Mr. Wilson's word in preference to Mr.  Houston's. The stib.-.eqtient admission,  by the Tribune that S. S. Taylor was  to act for the city iu the Coulter ease  corroborates, if any corroboration is  necessary.  Mayor Houston's Economy.  Tlie present mayor of Nelson is constantly drawing attention, in his  modest way, to the amount of money  he has saved the city. Here are a few  items lie has overlooked :  George Eacritt drew two months  salary as assistant chief, and got a new  suit of clothes, bis total receipts  amounting to ��195. There were two  fires during his term of , oflice; he  slept through one and look the brigade  three blocks out of its way to the other.  Two fire team drivers are now employed, one by the mayor and one by  the council. A special counsel has  been instructed to d.lend an action  against he city for ��75. This coun-e is  certain to result in financial gain tothe  city.  Constiutional Anomalies.  Many years ago the late Mr. Glad  mandtnent which enjoins due recog- si��''e delivered a lecture oil the British  nition of the Sabbath Day. Tlie lapse "  occurred last Sunday when launches  were engaged by the Marconi Wireless  agents for the purpose of advertising  their business. Throughout the afternoon these launches plied upand down  the lake conveying revellers, who dispatched wireless messages of a more  or less profane character to their friends  in tlie city. One of the* party went  even so far as to advertise the establishr  ment in which he worked, by wiring  "Read the Tribune for the daily news."  Surely there is -some way of preventing repetitions of these horrifying  desecrations of the Sabbath Day and  the punishment of the offenders. Iu  the past the good-living portion of the  public has beeu shocked by exhibitions  of base ball on Sunday, but how much  more offensive is the permission of a  lot of stock-jobbers to openly knock  holes in the Sabbath Day by advertising themselves as the Marconi Wireless  people did last Sunday. It speaks well  for the law-abiding spirit of the religious citizens of Nelsou that they did  not turn out as a man and annihilate  the law-breakers. Little wonder that  one clergyman made it the subject of  his evening discourse- Just how  Brother Blakemore has succeeded in  bottling up his wrath is not the least  marvellous feature of the situation.

He showed that the severeign  could plunge the country in war, the  lords could block all legislation, the  commons could refuse the money  necessary for civil government. Never-  theless heheldc.that the system was  safe because it was inconceivable that  any one ofthe three estates should disregard, the rights of the other two.  The Municipal Clauses Act of British Columbia" is less indefinite than  the British Constitution. r��he powers  of mayors and council-are defined very  clearly. But as the council cannot be  always in session, certain prerogatives  have been entrusted to mayors. The  assumption was of course, that a mayor  would be a sane and intelligent man,  and would exercise his prerogatives in  accordance with the provisions of the  law. It was apparently inconceivable  to tbe framers of the act that any city  of British Columbia could elect as  mayor a man so eccentric as to use his  emergency power habitually as a club.  HOUSTON WILL  NOTKESIGN  Needs  the   Salary  Business.  in    His  The belief advanced by so many famous surgeons that intemperance is an"  active agent in the spread of consumption has a powerful supporter in Sir  William Broadbent.

The Vancouver Province is now publishing a series of reminiscences from  the pen of Hon. D.W. Higgins, author  of "The Mystic Spring" and other  stories. The-, sKtiehf'b^now^ run ii ing  are equal.to the former ones from the  pen of the same gentleman, and are  sure to increase the circulation of the  Vanpruver paper. The last one, "In  the Saddle-Bugs," is a particularly interesting story, and deals with the adventures of un Englishman named  Armitago, well-bred, who turned highwayman and murderer, and suffered  death for his crimes. David Glass, who  works for the corporation of Nelson, remembers the circumstances of Arm-  itage's crimes and escape, and assisted  in the search for the fugitive fur two  or three days.  emphasized his belief that the greatest  and most potent of these was alcoholic  excess.  Expectoration, he continued, caused  its spread more than anything. If the  the whole of the expeetoratiou could  be destroyed at one moment, the disease would be ..stamped out. Spitting  must be stopped by public opinion and  by punishment. Wherever cases of  consumption were known, the authorities should be notified, uud thc dwellings disinfected. Compulsory notification should certainly be adopted.  Regarding .sanatoria, Sir William  Broadbent declured that they had been  discredited by people expecting too  much from them, but they were nevertheless the principal means of curing  the dUease. At present they are only  for the rich, but they should be made  available for the poor.  All the gnat nations of the world  had combined to put down consumption. The association had not done  badly in England, but there was still  more to do. There should be a central  bureau, where people could go for information on the subject, and where  they could find out what was being  done.  After the Earl of Derby had declared  that light and air would do more good  than the most skilful attendance and  treatment or the most careful concoction of nauseous drugs, Sir James  Crichton Browne gave Has hisopin-  ttiat the^hetter feeding of school child-  three months because the timetable  was unintelligible are thankful for the  return ofthe old time.  The lacrosse match, last Thursday  afternoon, between the dry goods men  and the grocers, resulted in a victory  for the former by 0^3. It was not  what might be designated a scientific  match, but what it lacked in skill was  made up In fun���for the spectators.  Tlie Winnipeg papers contained complimentary notices of the productions  of Manager Cranston's Opera Company. The organization spent two  weeks in Winnipeg, and is now on its  way west. Edmonton and Calgary  will be given a week,and later thecom-  pany will come to the Nelson Opera  House for a week.  The artist who clips the telegrams  for the Tribune,should exercise more  care. The Vancouver npjpers, of the  early part of the week,"fwntained the  announcement that sweeping changes  would be made in saloon and hotel licenses at Vancouver. 1 he Tribune of  last evening published the information  thus secured from the Vancouver papers, as a telegram, without credit of  course, and erred in giving Victoria,  instead of Vancouver, as the city in  which these changes were to take place.  An enterprising paper is the Nelson  Tribune.  About the worst shock experienced  by the citizens of Nelson for some  time, came Thursday evening, when  the Tribune of that date suggested that  the mayor of Nelson was seriously  thinking of "chucking up the job."  Hitherto there had not existed any  suspicion that the mayor had any intention of abandoning the city to a'  fate so calamitous, so that the sudden  announcement came with a "dull,  sickening thud," as the_reporters say.  Strongmen, with blanched cheeks and  bowed heads, shook with terror  as they contemplated the possible results of such a dreadful  occurrence, while those made of  less sterner stuff were completely prostrated with emotion at the appalling  announcement. Altogether, itseemed  as if a pall oWcured the city, portending some great disaster. This was the  condition of affairs, when a local stoic  proceeded to argue that the fears of the  people were not well grounded. "John  Houston will not resign," reasoned the  philosopher, "There is a salary attached to the office of mayor and it is  not recorded where John Houston ever  overlooked an opportunity of picking  up an easy dollar. No matter how  much he would desire to free himself  from the confusion and turmoil into  which he has plunged the city, his intensely sordid nature will not permit  him to yield his grip on thesalary.. If  the office were not a salaried one, he  would have.resigned Jong ago, but  while.he can exercise; his predilection  for making trouble, and draw $100 per  month for doing it, there is not the  slightest probability of John Houston  handing in his resignation." The  humorous feature of the. situation is  the announcement of the Tribune that  John Houston has fought for "the  people" of Nelson. This may be one  of John's many hallucinations, but it  does not deceive the public. "Tbe  people" have long entertained the idea,  that there is only ono beneficiary in all  John Houston's fighting exhibitions,  and that is the apparently immortal  John himself.  20 m�� ^  A,  B. C.

The only defence the mayor's former  i  friends ean now find for their leader's  lawless actions is : "Well, he sold the  debentures after others had failed." Il  is about time lhat statement was withdrawn. It isa matter of common knowledge thai the sale of the power plant  debentures was effected by one of Nelson's hank managers, and that the.  mayor had 'nothing to do with it.

Their Use in Defining Courses  of Ocean Currents.      - -v  Every year for several years past  hundreds of bottles have been thrown  overboard from vessels of all kinds and  nationalities with the object of testing  the direction apd strength of the countless currents which flow like so many  devious rivers through the seas. Before each bottle is despatched on it.  unknown journey, says Tit-Bits,_tha  skipper who thus does marine science  good service, places In it a note of the  exact place whence it is despatched,  with the date, and also a printed note  in half a dozen different languages asking the pel son who may pick it up to  report to the Hydrographie Bureau at  Washington the time and whereabouts  of its recovery. Thus each messenger  with-itssecurely corked contents fares  forth on its voyage of ocean- survey,  and by its wanderings maps the currents of the oceans.  Of two bottles thrown over In mid.-  ocean at tbe same time one was picked  up on the coast of Devonshire, while  the other drifted to far away .Florida,  each being caught by a different cu--.  rent aud drifting thousands of utile*  away from its fellow. In curious'con-  trast was the wandering of three bottles  thrown over from the Dago 500 mi 10-  east of Newfoundland and all recovered  during the same week within a short  distance of eacli other after drifting  1.200 miles to the Hebrides. :  Another bottle was started on its  journey from the Nautilus, when close"  to the Canary Islands. Traversing  the great tropical ocean in the trade  wind belt; it went coursing along between the islands of the Windward  ward Group, across the Caribbeau Sea  to the coast of Belize, almost within the  Mexican Gulf. For 496 days it thus  pursued its solitary way before it was  stranded and rescued, having covered  4,700 miles at an average speed of  nearly ten miles a day. Even this remarkable record of travel was eclipsed  by a bottle which was thrown up by  the sea at Shetland a few years ago  and of which a tragic story is told.  On Oct. 11, 1890, the captain of the  ship Buckingham was murdered by a  coolie off the Shetland coast. Unable  to attract attention from the shore, ihe  mate proceeded on the voyage to New  "York, where the~mu~rderef���was" giveiT"*  into custody, and from there to the  Bermudas, where he wrote an account  of the tragedy and committed it to the  sea. By a most singular coincidence,  this bottle with its tragic message was  curried by the sea currents back from  the Bermudas to Shetland, nearly five  thousand miles away, and two and a  half years later was rescued almost ou  the very spot where the murder which  it recorded was committed.  For nearly three years another bottle  wns roaming over the seas before it  came to its rest. On Sept. 1 it was  pitched overboard from the Bremer-  haven several hundred miles eust of  Newfoundland; it was carried into tho  southern edge of the Gulf Stream,  drifted away beyond the Azores, then,  curving to the southwest off the coast  of Africa, it crossed the Atlantic, coming to its haven on the shore of a small  island in the West Indies, just north  of Hayti. It bad voyaged as nearly  as could be estimated, 4,500 miles in  994 days, averaging a distance of about  four and a half miles in twenty-four  hours.  A bottle thown over from the steamship Sutherland on March 11, 1897,  drifted 4,000 knots before it was recovered 181 days later; another record  maker was picked up on March 26,  1898, having covered 4,800 knots���  roughly 5,405 miles���In a little over  sixteen months.

Nelson A. Miles's first gun  in his campaign for the Governorship of Massachusetts has been fired.  He announces that the bathtub he  carried with nim while campaigning was only a little rubber affair!'  weighing two and one-half pounds.  His explanation Will not do. The  portable bathtub is a British institution, alien to democratic America,  a symbol of royalty and a monarchical affectation. Gen. Miles  should have carried a porcelain tub,  with exposed plumbing, hot and  cold water taps.���N.vy York Sun.  Corner Mill and Josephine Sts.  7-  John Honston, M. P. P., mayor  of Nelson, editor and general disturber of the peace, is having a hot  time in his home tovvu just at  present. He has been taken to  task for stating that be will not  abide by the decision of the majority, of the council, the.Evening  News going so far as to say that  "the mayor will either have to conduct himself in a lawful manner or  cease to-be a factor in municipal affairs." John Houston, M P. P.,  M. E., and G. D. of P��� thinks that  in death aloncTw"ilT~he~''ceasTtoW  a factor," and so he considers the  remarks of the Daily News to mean'  that he should be assassinated.  There will be no necessity if the obstreperous one is giver, rope enmigh.  ��� Kamloops Standard.  Quite the funniest thing that has  has happened for. a long time in  British Columbia journalism is the  the row now- on between John  Houston, of lhe Nelson Tribune,  and F. J. Deane, of the Nelson  News. The Tribune came out on  Tuesday with a scarehead article to  tlie effect that the Daily News had  advocated the assassination of the  sacred peison of John Houston,  vvho, in addition to being cliief of  the Tribune, is a sort of Pooh-Bah  iu the busy up-country city, being  mayor aud loc-..l member as well.  Mr. Houston -winds up a heated and  apprehensive screed on his great  personal jeopardy by saying: "The  Nelson Daily N&ws and its editor,  Francis J. Deane, advocates that  drastic means should be taken to  make John Houston cease to be a  factor in the administration of ..municipal affairs. In other words, that  John Houston be assasinated."���  The Week, Victoria.  Send Us an Order for Your  Groceries, then Rotice  The promptness of delivery.  The cleanness nnd freshness of Goods.

One time a TnlUionaire found himself at nightfall in a small town that  -was ministered to 'by no��� railroad. And  he had In his packet a "one-hundred-'  dollar 'bill and In his stomach a sens*  of hunger. -  And he went to the only store in tha  town to .buy food for .himself. Now tha  keeper of the store was : a man of  much caution and narrow mind.  "I am -as hungry as my stomach  knows how. to be," s-ald the millionaire affably.    "Sell me that veal pie."  As he spoke he laid down the hundred-dollar bill.  The cautious storekeeper picked It  up and looked at It-with doubt mingled  ���with distrust and accompanied with  dubiety. Then"-he said: -'My veal pie  Is worth ten cents to me, but I never  .._teard__of_Buch_a__billjas_that.;,_Giv__L_me.  menf.���CKarles'Battel"! "Loomls In "Saturday Evening Post"  one with another picture on it, for this  one is not worth a veal pie, I am sure."  .   And the millionaire said:  "My friend, it so-happens that this  evening finds me with no other picture  bills upon my person nor yet any coin.  The bill is surely worth a hundred of  the ordinary, every-day- kind. But that  is neither here nor there."  But the storekeeper shook his head  ���ourly. ������   .-.     .  "Nothing will recompense me fo#"the  veal pie but money that I can understand. There may be hundred-dollar  bills, but I never saw one before. I  know the worth of my veal pie, and If  you have ten cents you can eat lt, but  If you haven't you can't."  "But I have not ten cents," said th��  millionaire; "so let us put it on anoth-  *r basis. Give me the veal ple^)ut of  charity, for my stomach Is not used to  ^elng put off."  "Now we're on familiar ground," sail  the storekeeper, as he sliced a piece of  cheese and ate lt; "I have seen beggars many times, and as I never saw  one so well dressed as you are I doubt  you. You cannot be a beggar. Your  clothes betray you, and even If you  ���were one I would not help you as I do  not believe in encouraging mendicancy."  "You are difficult beyond a doubt,'  said the millionaire, raising his eyebrows -and shaking 'his head. "I have  lt. Let me work for the veal pie. I  am strong. Have you no boxes that  need unpacking, no goods that need to  be shelved?"  Said the storekeeper, looking at tha  clock: "I have never insulted the framo  that the Lord gave me by calling In  others to do that which I can do myself. Sly boxes are unpacked and my  goods are shelved. If you have tea  cents you oan take the veal pie, but ha  quick, for it Is the hour of closing."  Then the millionaire felt In his vest  pockets and found a counterfeit dlnvs  which he had received in change tha  day before. And rendered desperate by  his hunger he gave the storekeeper tha  dime and received in exchange the veal  pie. For to the near-sighted storekeeper the coin looked good.  As for the millionaire, be ate the pl��  like a shipwrecked mariner. And the  near-sighted storekeeper dropped tha  counterfeit into, bis till with <?ont__n__.  Scene: A collapsed building.

Thomas Bailey Aldrich once recelred  a pathetic letter In a feminine hand announcing the death of a little daughter  and asking If he would not send In hi*  own handwriting a versa ��r~two from  "Bable Bell" to ___uage tha grief of  the household.

Senator Cullora of Illinois was asked  by a correspondent why the Committee  on Foreign Relations had enjoined secrecy on .tt.e text of the new treaty  with Great Britain, when the text of  the treaty was printed ln all the mora-  Ing papers. "Just so, just so," said tl_��  senator; "that's the reason the Injunction of secrecy was placed upon t_<  treaty.    We knew that If w* made 11  . public at once not a paper ln the country would print Us full text."
