Array /  / U-u   w    6-y L- ^'l ^'L.-7  VOLUME VII.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY JUNE 18, 19C4.  ales of the   _L own  John Houston's effort to create the  ���impression that he is beincr boycotted  is a source of much merriment among  businessmen. No one believes for a  moment that the men lie accuses of  trying to'ruin his business are making  any such attempt. Theyhave too much  'work of their own to.look after to busy  themselves with-the affairs of the  ' Tribune. However, Mr. Houston pursues his old-time practice of working up  sympathy. In this he is not succeeding very well. No one has much sympathy for a crawler, and tiiis is precisely what the editor of the Tribune  is proving himself to be. He abuses  men who have no opportunity of defending themselves, and then asks the  public to pity the sorrows of a poor  old man who is being persecuted. Even  if the Tribune was boycotted, and this  condition exists only iti the imagination of its editor, Houston has no reason to expect sympathy, and lie  should-take his medicine like a man.  When Dell-Smith was in reality boycotted by the citizens of Ymir he didn't  cringe and pray for quarter. He fought  to a finish and never squealed, and in  this way won respect, even of the people who were throttling him. With  John Houston it is different. He  shouts before he is attacked.  ' Tito romance which has so many  years surrounded Miss Annie Laurie  has been dissolved, the youg lady having beon married iu Cranbrook last  week. The gentleman who was  so fortunate as to wiirthc hand of the  the young lady'about which thebal-  ladist has written " he'd lay mo down  and dee," was Robert J. Laurie. Tlie  bride contrary to tradition, came from  Chatham, Out., and there is nothing  to show that she ever lived atMaxwel-  ton's braes or even in that vicinity.  The committee in charge of the Dominion Day celebration' has already  presented its programme to the public,  and it must be said in all honesty that  it is one well calculated to attract visitors to Nelson on that day. Apparently nothing that will tend to add, to  _the enjoyment of-tbe-visi tors-has-been  overlooked. - Nelson -has enjoyed^for  years the distinction .of looking well  after her visitors, and no doubt the  Hospitality that will* be displayed on  this occasion will be a repetition of  what has been done in the past.  Dr. Giliier, of Jaffray, writes a letter  to th,e Ciunbrook Herald asking that  paper to ^eulogize the jury and judge  officiating in the trial of himself for  murder in which he was acquitted. He  also asks the Herald to say a good word  for the Crown prosecutor, Mr. McCann,  and principally the lawyer for the defence, S. S. Taylor, who, as the erratic  doctor expresses it, " bas considerably  relieved that undesirable reputation of  nullity and dishonesty of the profession  to which he belongs."  three McDonald Brothers. The former perform upon horizontal bars,  placed at the top of the huge tent.  With such precision of time and accuracy they repass each other and with  giant swings toss between them two  other members of the troupe. It is an  achievement bordering on the miraculous and requires the greatest possible  strength, skill, daring, courage and  grace. The McDonald Brothers are a  trio of sensational trick cyclists.^ Upon  one, two and three wheels, they go  through wonderfully intricate man-  oeuvers, riding backwards and forwards "on one wheel; riding blindfolded, riding at breakneck speed down  long flights of stairsand going through  many other difficult evolutions. The  acts make a realiy marvelous spectacle  and it is but two_acts of this nature  which Norris and Rowe have provided  for the entertainment of the public this  season. - The shows will exhibit at Nelson Tuesday June 28th.  The engagement ls announced in  Victoria, B. C, of Right Rev. William  Wilcox Perrin, D. D., bishop of British Columbia, to Miss Isoline Harriet  Moore, daughter of James Bailey, of  Westwood park, Southampton, England. Bishop Perrin was educated at  King's college, Londori,*and Trinity  college, Oxford, and was vicar of St.  Luke's Southampton, from 1881-83.  In the'latter year he was consecrated  Bishop of British Columbia in Westminster Abbey. Bishop Perrin leaves  ;Victoria for England in July, and the  marriage will take place immediately,  after his arrival."  Complaint has been made to this paper that at several of the recent public  and private parties in Nelson, the music was furnished by men who make  their living by playing the piano in  questionable resorts. If this is the case,  it should be discontinued. It is not  well that respectable .young women  should be brought into communication  in any way with men who are so low  in the social scale as to earn their living in houses of ill-repute. Nothing in  theworldcaniustify" a"eomrnittee~in  selecting social lepers to supply the  music at a party patronized by respectable people.  The noise in the gallery at the theatre  the other evening during the performance given by the Pauline Johnston  company was simply exasperating. In  the middle of one recitation, Walter  MeRaye was compelled to stop, to the  great annoyance of not only the  elocutionist, but the audience as well.  The management have tried everything in the way of moral suasion on  the youngsters who are responsible for  this disturbance, and it seems now  the best thing to do would be to have  them brought up before Police Magistrate Crease. Possibly a fine might induce the parents to impart a little  instruction to their offspring.  A visitor, from Victoria to Nelson  this week is responsible for the state-  merit that no city in Canada approaches  the Kootenay metropolis in the beauty  of its surroundings. This gentleman  has recently been in Eastern Canada,  and he says that during.his visit to the"  various cities there he failed to see any  gardens that came up to the ones we  have here in Nelson.  -'.'������'     .   JAL -' -.'  Among the multitude of startling circus novelties and trained animal acts  which Norris and Rowe are offering  this season wifh their new big two  ringed and.elevated stage shows, there  are two that stand out with more than  ordinary prominence. Tbey are the  Gardner family of six persons and the  In illustration of the different ways  in which foreigners regard money, a  story is told about a gang of Sweedes  who were employed on the construction of the Temiskaming railway. After  laboring faithfully for some months  they thought last fall it was time to  celebrate. They went to a near-by  town, but it was too small. They  straightway went to North Bay, chartered a Pullman car aud went to Montreal, where they remained as long as  the cash lasted. Then lhey returned  to work. On the other hand, other  nationalities���the Italians for instance  ���carefully retain their money until  they have enough to go home on or for  some other purpose.  The following is the Hansard report  of the premier's reference to Lord Dun-  nonald as a foreigner and the comments made thereupon in the subsequent debate :  Sir Wilfrid Laurier���Lard Dundonald, in his position, i.s charged with  the organization of the .militia, but he  must take counsel here when organizing a regiment. He is a foreigner���  no ���  Some hon. members���No, no.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier��� L.hacl withdrawn tho expression beforo hon. gentlemen interrupted. He is not a foreigner, but he is^a stranger.  Some hon. members���No.  Mr. Fowler���I was somewhat surprised at the statement which fell  from the lips of the prime minister today. It is to be said -by-thc prime  minister of a British colony, that a  man of British birth and of British  parentage, when becomes to a colony  of Great Britain, is a foreigner. The  prime minister when he used the word  saw that he made a great mistake. A  man who had shed his blood for this  great empire ; a man whose ancestors  for many generations back have fought  and bled to the upbuilding of this  great empire of ours ; such, a mau to  be characterized by the prime minister  of a British colony as a foreigner���  An hon- member���Oh !  Mr. Fowler���Who says oh ? I can  quite understand a remark of that  kind coming from an hon. gentleman  opposite. I have read of the words  the prime minister has uttered. I can  understand something of the feeling  that actuates him towards British generals and British officers,* but, sir,  thank God, that feeling is not widespread throughout the Dominion of  Canada. The prituo minister amended  the word "foreigner" by calling the  general officer commanding a stranger.  Dundonald, the man whose ''name is a  household word throughout Canada,  to be called a stranger in Canada. The  amendment was very little better than  the original in the mouth of tlie prime  minister. No, Mr. Speaker, Lord  Dundonald is neither a stranger-nor a  foreigner on any soil where the British  flag floats. '"~  Col. Hughes���Another statement of  the first minister was thi3.   He referred to Lord Dundonald as a foreigner  and a stranger.     Let me tell the right  hon. gentleman that Lord Dundonald  is a Britisher and so are all Canadians,  irrespective of language, race or nationality.    We are all Britishers, sir, and  mark you we intend   to remain Britishers.      It was Britain which has  peopled this country, and let me tell  the right hon. tho First Minister that  we intend it shall remain British.     It  shall  not be annexed to the United  States.     It shall not become independent   of   Britaiu because  tlie  people  who never hesitated to come  to  the  front in times of necessity have decided  that it   will   remaiu British if  they know their business.   Let me tell  you, sir, further that Canadians owe  allegiance first to the empire of which  Canada forms a part, and tbat they  intend remaining British ; and should  the time ever arrive when any Canadian government will demand  the allegiance of   Canadians to an independent Canada on the one hand in preference to the old empire, including  Canada, on the other, the rebel will be  he who declines to stand by the old  British empire.    I think, judging by  the general conduct of these gentlemen, that the time has arrived when  we  may as well lay down the law to  them; and if  the time should ever  come when  these hon, gentlemen will  undertake  to bring about such a condition of affairs as they would lead us  to believe they have in view, they will  Had that they will have to depend on  horses alone and that it will require  something moro than horses to accomplish what they desire. Let mc tell  the right hon. the Frst Minister furthermore 'that Lord Dundonald is no  foreigner and no stranger in this Dominion.  The Nelson city band is an organization that should be encouraged. The  membership is made up of local talent  exclusively, and for the past year everything that could be done in the way  of persistent practice to make the band  a success has been done. As a result  of this practice, there is a marked improvement in the playing. It is something of an undertaking to finance an  organization of this character, and it is  doubtful if it could be held together if  the orchestra did not add to the revenue by giving da noes, etc., In future  street concerts will be given every  Wednesday eueuing. These concerts  will take place at- the corner of Baker  and Ward streets as soou as the break  in the street at that point is mended.  Tt was expected:that before this time  the band stand would have been  erected, but this also is probably due to  the bad condition of the street at the  point before mentioned.  There is work ahead for the lawyers.  The survivors of those who lost their  lives in the 'Clallam disaster, last January, are arranging to sue tlie Puget  Sound Navigation Company to recover  damages. Iu Seattle, on Monday last,  Mrs. Bertha Campbell filed a suit in  the Federal Court to recover 550,000  damages on account of the death of her  husband, Robert Campbell, who went  down on the Clallam. This is tlie  second suit for that sum against the  company for loss of life. It is presumed that the company refused to  compromise before the suit was entered.  Tlie town of Moyie is again comin?  to tho front. The St. Eugene had a  payday last week, on which occasion  the sum of $25,000 was distributed.  Business in the town was brisk, and  the morcnanls and hotel men were  well satisfied;��� The^Moyie'Leader says  tiiere is a splendid .class of men working in the St. Eugene, and that it is  safe to. say not a single account was  ."jumped" on payday, something that  occurred very frequently in former  days when tlie mine was running.  British Columbia will lose a very  able clergyman in the person of Rev.  Elliott S. Rowe, D. D., whohas been  transferred to the. Hamilton conference. Rev. Dr. Rowe has been in  charge of the Metropolitan Methodist  Church at Victoria for the last four  years, during which time he has  preached to large congregations every  Sunday. As a pulpit orator he has few  equals in the west. He will not leave  British Columbia until he fully recovers from his throat ailment.  liotel itself would provide all other  classes of private baths. As there is  no sewerage discharge in Victoria harbor at the present time from the city  sewers, nor enough from other sources  to do any positive injury to the recurring tide, it would be sufficient to supply these baths with salt water from  somewhere near the mouth ofthe harbor, say the C. P. R. property, with a  pump of a very low lift, but power  enough to fill two baths of, say, 100x50  feet, in a reasonably short time.  James Payn, writing in the Illustrated Daily News, declares that if anything comes of the new French rifle  which discharges vitriol instead of bullets, there will be a great revolutiou in  warfare. Mr. Payne regards it as  something amazing that a member of  so gallant a natiou should have invented such a weapon. No matter  how brave a man may be, he will  shrink from going into a battle which  may mean hideous disfigurement for  life. The Duke of Wellington, -we are  told in the Latin Grammar (comic),  would "walk among the cannon balls,  him not caring one blow" ; but even  the great Duke would hardly have exhibited the same indifference to rifles  squirting vitriol. No decent-looking  soldier will be got to face them ; they  will have to be approached backwards.  This will entail a new system of drill.  Think of a whole regiment charging  backwards! If both forces are possessed of this novel weapon, the spec-  tacle'will be doubly entertaining. Our  ideas will not only be transformed, but  inverted. When our warriors return,  they will no longer exhibit with pride  pride the wound.* they have received  iu the front���quite tho reverse; the  more behind the belter. " Those between the shoulders (you can see thetn  botter than I_can) were received when  I carried the vitriol battery, smd those  lower down when I voluntered for the  forlorn hope." Ancient warriors who  have been wounded, as it were, in the  old "places will have to make explanations���" It was beforo tlie vitriol days,  you see, when we used to face the  en emy. '1 .   BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  The ci tizen3 of Victoria are beginning  to realize the wisdom of making their  city a tourist resort in everything that  the ten ri. implies. For years tlie question of providing swimming baths has  been discussed, but nothing ever carr.e  of it. Now tbe proposal i.s again before  the people, and an attempt will be  made to have swimming baths as an  adjunct to the new C. P. R. hotel. A  writer in the Victoria papers shows  that it would not be a difficult or expensive matter to sink two framed timber cribs behind the C. P. R. hotel, on  the James Bay flats, sufficient for a  ladies' and gentlemen's swimming  bath, and after being sunk, to line  these with good concrete and give  thern a good finishing coat of fine concrete inside.    It is assumed that the  Prof. Macoun has made the following important statement respecting the  future of British  Columbia :" As tlie  years  roll on and  our possessions become developed, the value of this second Britain will come so vividly before  the   people that men will ask with astonishment  why  such    ignorance   of  British Columbia prevailed'in the past.  To-day there are -100 miles of coast line  clothed with a forest growth superior  to anything else in the world at present.   Its shores, indented with multitudes of harbors, bays and inlets, teeming with myriads of iislV, its rocks and  sands   containing    gold,'iron,  silver,  coal and various other minerals.    And  besides all this a climate superior to  England in every respect, both as regards heat and moisture, and yet men  will ask what is it worth ?    I answer  'Worth more than Quebec and all the  maritime provinces thrown in.'     And  sceptics may rest assured that the day  is not far distant when my words will  be accepted as truth."  I'lioenlx Pioneer.  Yesterday was the monthly payday  at the Granby mines, when theaverage  amount of ?40,000 was distributed in  wages.  James 'Cunningham, owner of the  Saloon fraction adjoining the Brey  Fogle in Summit camp, has uncovered  a good body of Iron ore.  A shipment is shortly to he made to  the Greenwood smelter from the Roderick Dhu, which is under bond to the  B. C. Copper Co.  W. J. Porter, who is still working  the Iron Clad, Wellington camp, on  the big showing that was recently uncovered, says that it is improving, and  also shows some galena.  After but two days shutdown on  account of a break of 50 feet in the  flume, the six furnaces at the Granby  smelter were blown in again last Sunday night. Additional electric power  from Cascade was requisitioned.  Alex Miller and associates, who  have a bond on the Helen, near Greenwood, and are forming a company to  take over that high"grade'claim, recently made a rich find in the tunnel iu  the property, the lead being about 14  inches in width.  The time for deposit of old Montreal & Boston stock with the Knicker-  bocker Trust Co., of New York, under  the plan of merger with Brooklyn  group, Morrison, Emma and Athelstan  mines, has beeu extended 30 days till  June 30th. -The shares are-reported to  have been coming in freely.

In a  few clays the electrical machinery at'  the smelter will be tested, and on or  before the first of July those reduction  works should be entirely operated by  electrical machinery.  Work has been started on the tramway at the Granby mines which will  eventually "coifnect"the Nor_4"tu7TTiel  with the large ore bins that will be  erected i ti' the centre of the city.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  ul( a man die shall he live again ?" This most  important of all questions has recently been the subject of a Harvard lecture by Dr Osier of Johns Hopkins university, a naturalist and physician of worldwide fame, whom President Eliot introduced as one  who in certain specialties stands at the head of bis  ' profession. The doctor is a Canadian by birth, being  one of the distinguished fain'ly of that name, of Toronto. Dr. Osier presented both the agnostic and the  orthodox sides of the subject. He dwelt upon the  lethargic state ofthe multitude in regard to the problems of the future life, aud the wide prevalence of the  material sentiment, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." He gave the testimony of hundreds of deathbeds to prove that men die as they live ;  that few die in terror of any future retribution, and  fewer still with any rapture of anticipation. Yet he  regarded these facts as only evidence that people are  less confident and more reticent in regard to the future  life than they used to be. He held the evolutionary  hypothesis responsible for the weakening of belief iu  the ancient creeds, and declared that so far as science  knows, the life of the mind ceases with' the death of  the body. Jts teaching makes the race everything,  the individual nothing. Yet, despite the teaching of  materialists whose knowlekge is derived through the  senses, despite that scientific spirit which now dominates public opinion, Dr. Osier declares himself one  of the mystics and idealists who see with the eye of  faith. He would pay due respect to tbe emotions and  intuitions, and allow the heart to dominate the head.  He finds that the fruit of lives ruled by the hope of  immortal destiny aud faith in another world that  shall make these odds of life all even, is far better  than that of the pessimists and agnostics. With  Lowell be avows himself  "Happy is the right  To love God's darkness as his light."  Realizing that the finite mind cannot fathom the infinite, he is content to trust where perfect knowledge  is denied him.     He would have men recover the lost  secret of combining feeling with intellect without allow ing either reason or emotionalism to go too far. He  ���is-stire-that-the- world cf-lc-day-will-noi-be-satisfied  with any solution of the other life which does  not  fuake  it a reasonable as well as longed-for ideal.    He  repudiates that cult called Spiritualism, but shows an  indulgent fittitude   toward  the society of Physical  Research.    He predicts that science, which is now inclined to scofFat this organization, will one day be its  ally.    This result must must be brought about by the  collecting of facts and the weighing of evidence in regard to the spirit life.     Dr. Osier hopes that the evidence collected by the society may in time prove such  as to  justify its submission to a representative committee of the National Academy.of Science.  crate his own "bishops," to the loud indignation of I  his brother Charles. Although handicapped by I03*- j  alty to King George during the War of Independence, and by siding with the south iu the Civil War  ���one of the Bishops actually became a Confederate  general and was killed in battle���the Episcopal  Church is stated to be making more rapid progress  than any other denomination iu the United States.  Canada cannot afford to give a million aud a half to  Senator Co c and his friends for the privilege of having another transcontinental line constructed, but it  can expend that sum on the railway and ruu it in the  interests of the people.  In the event of Canada being attacked by a foreign  power, to whom would she turn for advice and assistance ? To a man like S3 dney Fisher, the agriculturist, or Lord Dundonald,, the -distinguished soldier of  the'Empire?  The Archbishop of Canterbury has definitely decided lo accept the invitation of the Presiding Bishop  of the Episcopal Church in America to visit the  United States this antumn for the general convention. Previous ArchLishcps cf Canterbury have  snubbed. American Episcopalians, and Bishop Sea-  bury, their first Bishop, derived his "succession " from  the Scottish Episcopate.

If-Yankee Engineer Kyle would now leave Canada,  his departure would be regarded with equally as  much pleasure as his resignation as engineer of the  Grand Trunk Pacific.  A report from Melbourne, Australia, to the Miu-  ing Journal, of London, gives the gold production of  Victoria, Australia, for the four months ended April  30, 1904, as 251,179 ounces of fine gold, worth  $5,025,000.  After the hanging at St. Scholastique, Que., last  Friday, RadclifFe, the executioner, broke down and  wept like a child. Asked as to what was the matter  with him, be said it was sympathy for Belanger and  his family. ''I have a wife and family of my own,"  _he_sai_d, "andjcanjrealize,what.it would_be_like.to_be  in Belanger's place." The hangman afterwards proceeded to drown his sorrow in liquids and succeeded  pretty well.  The Loudon (Eng.)

It is announced that Earl Grey, Lord-Lieutenant of  Northumberland, has been appointed to succeed the  Earl of Minto as Governor General of Canada. Albert Edward George Grey is the fourth Earl, and a.  grandson of the Earl of Grey, who was prominent in  British politics oi the last century. He was born in  1851, is a son oi Gen. Hon. Charles Grey, aa^' brother of Lady Minto.  According to a statement printed in the Financial  News, of London, a prominent banker of that city  goes on record as saying that with Chiuese employed  iu the mines of South Africa the gold production of  the Transvaal will withiu the next ten years amount  to $250,000,000 a year. His figures are, as printed,  ^"50,000,000, which is equal, roundly speaking, to  $250,000,000. The highest record for the Transvaal,  and which was before the Boer war, was $85,000,000.

Can"  If his charge be well  fotrnded, and  a competent officer wa s really rejected  simply because of his politics,   it is a  matter worthy of some serious attention.   There may be  room for difference on broad grounds of policy with  leference to militia matters, but surely  there is no excuse for lhe introduction  of the narrowest and  most mischievous features of party politics.   Besides,  under our system, the minister of agriculture was scarcely the man to interfere.   He might more properly have  confined  himself to the affairs of his  own department.
