NELSON, B. C SATURDAY AUGUST 6, 19C4.  ���>: -a:.ys��.t^vK3f4-Ha _  H-akS'fl-'JSlSpS? I  >,a 7 * 'fSvn-.HnV ^*H-H-aJ$rfV h  X ales of the  own  r,-  Tiic citizens of Nelson have been  boasting for some time that they htul  . the best daily newspaper published in  nny city of this size in '.Canada. They  can now point to lhe fact that they have  ���the most puerile, disreputable daily rag  printed in any place in the world. 1 f  John Houston knows anything about  the requirements of a newspaper, ho  must feel ashamed of tlie sheet ho is  getting out. Tlie thing is u cross between a poster and a hotel gazette, and  Is without one redeeming feature. The  "telegraphic news" for tbe greater part  isancient history, being reprinted without credit from the coast papers and  the Spokesman-Review, there is no local news, and the editorial columns are  filled with.the ravings of a seemingly  harmless madman. The wretched  thing fully justifies, the ridicule that is  being heaped upon it and its editor by  the public. There is a tradition that  John Houston once knew something  about getting up a newspaper. The  sheet that is now issued from the Tribune office places'that tradition in the  class with "Jack, IheGiant Killer" aud  the " Mother Goose" stories. Nelson  will not be benefitted by the publication of this ".daily," on (lie contrary a  great injury may be done toHhc city  and its interests. Let the thing be  cast into the newspaper boncyard���it  even defiles the foul source to which it  owes its origin.  It is to be regretted that that tho Nelson Operatic Society will.not be able to  carry out their idea of producing "The  Pirates of Pcnz'siuee^-during thu Fair  week. An .effort'will be made to give  tlie popular opera later in the season,  perhaps in December.   ���  as soon as arrangements can be made,  it 13 intended to organize a first-class  slock company tliat will confine its  work to the new circuit alone.  N  ews of the  M  mes  A sho.rt time ago a man was found  dead in his bed at one of the lodging-  'houses in Seattle, having committed  suicide. At first it was thought that  the dead man was F. W. Dyniond, bin  later the rumor got abroad that the de  ceased was Walter M. Askew, who resided in Nelson for a year or two. The  picture of the man supposed ts be Dy-  mond resembled in many respects Mr.  ^ Askew, but on en refill 1 n y er. i juration i t  was discovered that it was a case of mistaken identity. The latter left Grand  Porks two .years ago and -h a's.nevei  been heard of since.  V;  Arrangements were complelcd yesterday   whereby  the   Nelson    Opera  House has been   placed   in a circuit  which is being framed up by Messrs.  William Cranston, of ��� Winnipeg, and  Geo. Tern pes', of Calgary.    The new  circuit   will    consist   of    twenty-one  houses.   These houses are located from  Edmonton  to   Ktunloops   and Leth-  bridge, and taking in all "the places of  Amusement in the interior of British  Columbia.     Arrangements are being  made with the booking agents of other  circuits to fill in dates in tho. twenty-  one houses controlled by Messrs. Cranston and Tempest.    The advantage ol  this enterprise will be seen at a glance.  Hitherto wc have had to depend on  the  companies that happened to   be  passing through here, and as a result  Mr. Annable had no choice-as to the  quality of the amusement.   Under thi  new arrangement only first-class companies will be bookeJ, for the reason, if  no other, that they will have to fill in  ".^jvmty-one nights, and ir�� manager is  going to take the risk of booking an inferior organization, knowing that if. it  7. is not up to", the mark it will  be a losing venture for a month.   It docs not  follow that all companies will play in  the*twenty-one houses in the circuit.  Occasionally there will be companies  that cannot afford to take in smaller  towns, and in "these cases tbey will be  booked only in thejlarger places.   Just  The Winnipeg exhibition has been a  great success, no doubt, but just wait  for the Nelson Fair.  It would be a thoughtful consideration for the comfort of the people, if  the New Denver sage would delay the  publication of his hew paper until the  end of the present hot spell.  The Vancouver papers are devoting  column after column to the discussion  of tho case of Dr. Telford, who is  charged with having committed an  abortion on Hattie Bowell. They had  a lively day in court Wednesday,  when McHarg, who is accused of being  tlie cause of the girl's downfall, refused to answer questions put by the  Crown. He was committed to jail.  Then Joseph Martin asked tlie magistrate for a copy of tlie warrant on  which .������McHarg was arrested" at Portland, and this being refused, Mr. Martin and the magistrate had a heated  controversy, which resulted in the  former being evicted from the court  rooi.n. It is stated that McHarg has  made a confession "to' the .-effect that  Telford had been engaged to perform  the operation and knew all about the  trouble of the poor unfortunate girl.  D. G. Marshall, the well known Vancouver, lawyer refused lo aot for. McHarg. Mr. Joseph Martin and Mr.  Bowser appear for J)r. Telford.  F. 15. Hawthorne has returned from  a very successful trip'lhruugh the interior in the'interests of the Kootenay  Cigar Co.  Fred. S. IIusscj'. superintendent of  provincial police, has returned to Victoria after nn absence of over six  months spent in California. When  Mr. Hussey left Victoria be was in very  bad health, so far gone that few of his  friends expscted to see him again. He  says lie had a very hard sie!,e of it, but  that he is now feeling almost himself  again. The Colonist says ho looks it,  and on this score is receiving congratulations from all quarters.  tlie Okanagan, Kelowna and Spallum-  cheen districts, and intimated that the  Arm was much better than thai district and decided on purchasing there,  AN IMPORTANT DECISION.  An  Ecclesiastical .decision  of  great  importance has just been announced.  It wa3 a decision of the House of Lords,  the-hi��he��t-judicial :eourrol���tlie~=Etii^  piic.     Some four  years ago the Free  antUlhc United Presbyterian Churches  of' Scotland  decided  to unite,     That  union   was  effected.     A minority of  twenty-four clergymen strongly held  out against the union, and at once entered an i-.ction which sought a declaration that  the Union  so effected was  powerless so far as  transferring   the  property  of  the Free Church  to the  United Church, and claiming the pro-  petty on behalf or the remnant of the  Fvee Church who declined to enter the  Union.  Tliat property is very valuable,  consisting as it does of   nearly eleven J  hundred churches and their manses,  colleges, mission  halls and large sums  of money.    The lower courts decided  that the Free Church  had power to  transfer this  property to the United  Church, and that the deed of transference was effective in doing so.    The  House of Lords has now revised this  decision.aud has held that.this deed is  inoperative as they, the majority, had  uo such power, and vests this vast property in the,claimants thereto on behalf of the Free Church of Scotland.  So difficult did the House of Lords regard the question beforo them for decision that they asked a re-argument  .of the case.  What will be the outcome  'of...this decision it isi'difficult to forecast.    The immediate import of this  judgment is that hundreds of thousands of people will bo without churches,  and   several   hundreds   of    ministers  without their  usual residences.   The  probability is that the Imperial Parliament will be asked to,meet the decision  by a special act.  Thos. Taylor, M. P. P., Revelstoke,  was in the city yesterday attending t,Iin  meeting of the interior executive of the  Provincial Conservative Associstion.  Mr. Taylor sees many signs of encouragement for the Conservative candidate in the Kootenay.  It is understood that there is one  newspaper in Nelson on the bargain  counter. The purchasers as an extra  inducement can secure an editor who  is an expert on punctuation.  On Thursday evening of last week a  large and influential meeting of the  Liberal-Conservatives of Arrowhead  was held, over fifty enthusiastic .Conservatives being present. "W. Iti Reid  was iii the chair. Thos. Taylor, M. P.  P., who was present, gave a most in  teresting address upon federal ques-  tions. The following officers were  elected : Hon. .President, Hon.

There is quite a boom in farm property at Salmon Arm.. One of the most  important transactions was the changing hands of the Glover property, the  purchaser' being Mr. Sharpc, Superintendent of the Dominion Experimental  Farm at Agassiz.     Mr. Sharpc toured  William Hunter, of Silverton, was in  the city to day attending the meeting  of the Kootenay Conservative Association. Mr.Hunter was searching the  book stores this morning for nursery  rhymes and childrens' toys, there beiug*j  a demand in his household for those  things just now.  limes  on the Niger.  I.called to the chief engineer lopass  up a couple of fire bars and the carpenter for a. piece of canvas. I rolled the.  body of the dead man up in it and four  of us carrying him to the side,, with a  swing sent hinfover. "Now for a few  buckets'of water," I: aid, "and swab  this blood away." The captain just  then quietly remarked as he looked  down'on the scene below, "That's  right, old man, stay with it." My  word, he did not know how deadly  sick I felt.  =I(>;certainly-was a-tough-lime as=nny-  inoment we might have been blown  into tlie air, if a shot happened to strike  the boilers or. forward of the bridge,  where: we had 800 to .1,000 kegs of  powder under the furc hatch, every  shot sending sparks flying in all directions.  The greater partot the time I was  stationed at the foot of the port ladder  if the bridge behind a couple of deals  which might have turned a bullet, but  which would have been sent flying by  a round shot. Although it was hot  work I could not help being amused  at fhe lust of the sheep, whose pen had  been knocked into kindling wood ; fol-  1 owing clobc at Tucker's, the second  officer, heels as he went from gun to  gun, discharging them with a red hot  iron he got out of the stoke hold, the  fuses having'failed on account of the  dampness. At every discharge the  sheep would take a little jump into tlie  air, run to the. next gun and do it  again. I thought it was one of the  most extraordinary sights I ever saw.  At one time a regular whistler went  close oveiomy head, a splinter of wood  cutting the top of my head open, going  light through iron shutters, deals and  salt bags, and embedded itself in the  chart room, nearly frightening to death  five or six krooboys, who bad gone onto  the bridge for safety. One of them,  Tom Nimbley, a big fellow six feet and  in . proportion, came slithering down  the -port ladder nearly on <��� top of me,  his face an ashy hue, which I suppose  is the nigger's way of turning pale  Just as he came to the bottom, bang  came another big gun.    He crouched  ONSLOW NEWLrNG.  down behind me, and how a full grown  man could be such a coward I don't  know. I soon starlet! him out of tliat  by jabbing him on the head with the  butt of my i If lo ; he crawled to the  steward, who was next mc, who served  him likewise, he then started for  the starboard side under the bridge,  wriggling like a snake; didn't even  get on his hands and knees, and I found  him some time afterwards, the other  krooboys lying ou top of him five or  six deep, 'fucker wanted him to work  t-iie-guiisraS"he=Was"a'siiiaTffell^7aTrtr  asked me if [could find liim. Tucker  had a good red hot iron in his hand at  the .moment. I said, "Give me thut  and I'll start hiin." Tucker handed  mc the iron and I walked to the starboard side under the bridge where the  krooboys were piled up like herrings  in a tub. "Here, whore's Tom Nimbley ? Come, get up out of that," waving tlie hot iron amongytheir naked  legs. I could see Tom's blanket drawers showing dirty white among a  crowd of black legs  managed to get a few mouthfuls, for it  is sorry work fighting on'an empty  stomach. I ran up onto the bridge to  Macintosh \ vvith a tumbler of claret, a  pineapple and some biscuits, the breakfast being all over tlie floor of the  saloon. I thought he must be nearly  dead ; the heat was something awful.  I saw the man "Tit the wheel, but no  sign of Macintosh. I said, "Where's  the captain?" He wagged his head  towards an opening through which  they had a view of the river ahead.    [  "cb"uld"jTist_see pi"pairof heels : " Come  down, for heaven's sake, captain," 1  said, "if you yet killed it's all up with  us." lie knew the river like a turnpike road, but I knew if any thing happened hiin- the helmsman would lose  his nerve, let go the wheel and we  should be athwart the stream in a minute... "Oh its cooler up here," and  there he was sitting on the roof of the  chart house, his rifle across his knee.'',  taking'a shot now aud again at any  black heads he could see.   We wero so  Tom  squirmed 1 close lo the bush then that only a few  out and got up as far as his hands and! moments before T had been cut in the  knees. Just then a 9-lb. shot struck  overhead, and went clattering down  into tho engine room. That was  enough ; he dived in amongst tlie legs  again. I touched him up several times  with the hot iron, but it was no use.  I did not know until afterwards how  badly I had fired him, but one docs not  stand on ceremony on occasions like  these.  Our ship's crew behaved splendidly,  and some few ofthe crewboysdid good  service working the guns, but the majority of them piled one on top of another under the bridge on thestarboard  side. Although we might have been  dead any minute, *we could not help a  laugh at the black cook making a bolt  for the stoke hole ; the stokers tried to  prevent his coming down, it was no  use, he was a heavy man and "regularly scared." We had overtwohours  of it. without the chance of getting a  mouthful eif anything to eat, or even  lying up my head, the blood by this  time having run all down my shirt  and matted in my hair.    About 10 I  face with tlie powder from the guns.  "I have gota drink for you," I said.  "That's a different thing, entirely,"  and he swung himself down, bursting  into a roar of laughter on catching  sight of me. "Just go into the chart  room and have a look at yourself in  the glass." I did. Talk of my-mother  not knowing me, I did not look " human," bloody hair hanging down my  face, my shirt saturated with it and  black  with  powder.   Dear old chap,  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  riioenlxl'Ionccr.  The force on the Broklyn and Stem-  winder is gradually being increased.  An important strike is reported from  the Betts and Hesperus group, on  Hardy mountain, where a thirty-foot  lead was uncovered on the Hesperus  claim.  Manager Moffat, ofthe Rathmullen,  is said to be getting encouraging results from the development he is doing  on a claim or two adjoining the Rathmullen group in Summit camp, which  are under option from Lauder and  Coot.  G. A. McLeod, of Grand Porks, who  bonded the McKinley claim, in Franklin camp last May, has also bonded the  Hanna and Munster claims, adjoining  the McKinley, and has located a smelter site.. Five men are at work on the !  McKinley,  Mike Kane and associates, interested  in the Mavis and Blue Jay, have secured a bond and lease on the Silver  King and Iron Top, also In Skylark  camp, and development is being started  ou the properties. They are all in the  high grade belt.  Supt. Lawrence, of the C. P.R.,states  that the Canadian Pacific is hauling  ore from more mines in the Kootenay  and Yale at the present time than in  any period during the last three or  four years, and the country generally  is on a sounder basis than ever before  in ita history.  About a million feet of timber will  be used in the new Granby No. 4 tunnel ore bins. They will be50 feet high,  and close to the new giant ore crusher.  The No. 3 and No. 4 tunnels when arrangements are completed will be able  to output .{,000 tons of ore per day.  Development was started Wednesday on the Spokane claini, one of a  group of 11 claims recently bonded by  J. C. Haas and associates from the  Bunk of Montreal, the clahriH being  formerly owned by the Boundary Creek  Alining and Milling Co. The Spokane  adjoins the Elkhorn, and in the past  high-grade ore-has been-iaken-froiti  several claims of the group.   ; =  .W*><L  NUMBER^^I  - >j?y ye??   =,-;���r" ZAA$&  1 . -    .*&_._!  - -   y s?*s  r,::H,-?M  \-'AZyf'*M  .. ; *"*fiSS  '' ''A"!A-&  - - -' -' fn  the St."George of which assays of $140" , ;'*&#  were made.

What Russia needs most at the present time is an  officer like Onslow Newling. He is a warrior bold  with pen or sword.  the importance'of Nelson from a fruit-grower's point  of view. The meeting on August 12 will be one of  the most important in the history of the association.  The leading authorities on fruit-growing in the Province have signified their intention of bei.ig present,  and a glance ever the programme will carry the conviction that new interest in fruit-growing in Kootenay m ust result from the visit of those geutlemen to  Nelson.  HXZji&rgSSyBB  Tbe Tribuue signalized its change to a "daily" by  killing off Kouropatkin. As a question of insurance  the risk on Kouropatkin is said to be better than that  on the Tribune.  Cabinet reconduction is on the tapis���the chief  change so far being that Charles Hyman will take  James Sutherland's portfolio, the latter-being a severely sick mail.  If Lord Dundonald would confide iu Mr. R. L.  Borden the plan by which his illustrious grandfather  proposed to destroy the French army and navy, it  could be used to great advantage in the elections this  autumn.  These da3*s are hot all right enough, but''they are  comparatively cool when compared with the reception  that awaits Sir Wilfrid Laurier at:d his ministers  when they appeal to Lord Dundonald's compatriots  for votes.  The fact that the Full Court has granted an ap.  peal in the assessment case of the Province vs. the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway, must net be construed as a stain on the spotless ermine of the judiciary, as symbolized by Mr, Commissioner Jowelt.  Nelson has been completely enveloped in smoke  this week from the bush fires raging iu every quarter. Carelessness in starting fires should be punished, and in every way possible preventive measures  should be taken to guard against' damage from this  cause.  If Russia needs a states::*im to 611 the portfolio  "made" vacant"liy"tlie~ l^m^al^f~N'b1^TMehTCsh��=if  hereby informed that her wants will be attended to  ���with quickness and dispatch by calling personally or  addressing a note to "John Houston, care of the Nelson Tribune."  Work has begun on the new buildings lor the Nel.  son Agricultural and Industrial Association. A portion of the old building is being torn down in order to  make the remodelled structure uniform. It is stated  .that the new fair building will cost in the neighborhood of $5,000 when completed.  All the Dominion Cabinet Ministers have abandoned their trips to Great Britain until after the elections. ' The G. T. Pacific syndicate is getting in line  to open its purse strings to an unlimited; extent. As  a Liberal member said at Ottawa the other day, "They  cannot afford to have Laurier beaten."  It is worth while noting that during the visit of the  Great Northern magnates to British Columbia with a  view of extending operations, the Canadian Pacific  Railway picked up twenty carloads of sheep from Republic, Wash., aud carried them to Chicago. This  seems to show that Canadian railways aie not so  slow in looking up business.  The regular quarterly meeting of the British Columbia Fruit Growers' Association will be held in the  Opera House, Nelson, on Friday, August 12. The  decision to hold a meeting here may be regarded as  Bn acknowledgement on the part oc the association of  What is Sir Wilfiid Laurier saying in Quebec, asks  the Toronto Mail and Empire? Here is airextract  from the right hon. gentleman's-paper, Le Soeil  (July 16), which answers that question :  '' The Grand Trunk Pacific has as its author Sir  Wilfred Laurier a French-Canadian Catholic.  "Sir Wilfrid,is sustained by fifty French-Canadian  Catholics.  " The Grand Trunk Pacific is going to aggrandize  and put in the first rank the Frovince of Quebec, a  French-Canadian Catholic province.  " This will not go in Ontario, the hearth of Orange-  ism.  " If Sir Wilfrid's project should fall, it would fall  beueath the blows of fanat:cism."  And yet this is the man who is said to be doing his  utmost to unify all classes and creeds in Canada The  man or the newspaper that seeks to create divisions  based upon the racial and religious differences of her  population is an enemy of Canada.

BOX 223  1 <S><&��S,-C'<s-&f&<>'fr-e^e"& ����������� ��-����<����"���������������������� ���<>-�������������  Sir Wilfrid Laurier appears to.hove again changed  his mind, if the signs are not designed to mislead the  Opposition. At Ottawa it is believed by many that  the elections will take place as early as September,  but others fix the date in November. This statement  is based on the rush at the printing bureau on the voters lists, and the pouring out of vast volumes of campaign literature by mail. Premiers Murray and  Twcedie, of Nova Scolia and .New Brunswick, were  at the capital for a few days last week in close conference with the Cabinet, and Sifton spent last week  in Manitoba looking over the situation. The Liberal  papers of Quebec, acting, it is believed, on orders  from Ottawa have already begun the campaign, and,  as might be expected, it is one calculated to arouse  the worst feelings of tbe French-Canadian population  of thut Province. Evidently Sir Wilfrid Laurier intends to work the race question for all it is worth. It  mny prove a boomerang.  The election campaign in Lillooet is now ou, and  there dees not seem to be any dcubt as to the result.  The contestants are Archibald McDonald for IheGov-  ment and D. A. Stoddard for the Liberals". Mr. McDonald was elected for Lilloet in the last campaign,  and will be re-elected this time by a greatly increased  majoiity. There are several reasons for this. The  Government is giving general satisfaction, and in ho  place is the policy of Mr. McBride and his colleagues  more popular than in the district of Lillooet. Again,  Mr. Stoddard during the many years he. represented  that constitutency never gave evidence of possessing  ptheq.uaHfications.of a^desirabie^represeutati.v_e^of^the_.  people., On the other nand,.Mr. McDonald has shown  himself to be a capable, painstaking member of the  Legislature. Moreover,'* the Government is now certain of being able to carry on for the next three years,  and no good object could be obtained by returning  an-opponent at the present time.

According to Dun's Review, there has been little  variation in general trade conditions at Montreal. The  dry goods warehouses show comparatively little stir  and city retail business in this line is even quieter  than everj while in groceries, except sugar, and in  heavy goods generally, the movement is a restricted  one. All things considered, however, payments are  fairly maintained,' and failures are few. The only notable change in merchandise values is*-a further advance 111 sugars by local refineries. At Toronto general wholesale trade is fairly active, but in dry goods  the volume of the business is not r.s large as the corresponding month a year ago.

Ottawa Citizen.  Wanted : 1004000 men to fill up Canada's paper army. Applicants required  to surrender their freedom as citizens  and be under tlie control of Hon. Syd..  Fisher or whoever is politically "responsible for the district" whether in  or out of uniform. Come early and  avoid the rush.  Hamilton Spectator.. j.���.  . The people resented tbe man nei* in  whieh the G. O. C. and the militia  had been treated, and flocked to cheer  Dundonald as a protest against militia  mismanagement, partisan appointments and the deliberate slander of as  good a soldier as ever wore a uniform.  Then came about tbe extraordinary de.  nionstrations in Toronto, Ottawa and  Montreal,and wherever Lord Dundonald has appeared since his dismissal  from Ottawa. In Ottawa the most  strenuous endeavor was made to lessen the demonstration as much as  possible. The government organ announced that neither a " good-Canadian".nor a Liberal could take part in  tlie. demonstration. 15andsmen were  dragooned, civil servants were.-.bulldozed, and every possible influence was  brought to bear upon the people to keep  them away from the farewell demonstration. The result was sueh a send-  off as no man previously received in  the Capital city.  Yes, these demonstrations have all  been of a political natnre ; they have  all shown that the government is most  unpopular ; they will all have influence  for the good of the militia and of Canada. Lord Dundonald did not suffer  dismissal for nothing.  ,W. A Thurnian  Depol far Briar Pipes, Nelscn  Navy  Cut Cigarette  Tobacco,  Pedigree Tobacco, Navy Cut  Cigarettes.
