Moreovei, it is  water for safety and convenience without restricting its use for gardens and  lawns which contribute so much to the  "beauty and attractiveness of the city.  It may be suggested at the same time  however thut to allow a hose to run all  night is sheer waste, and in the present circumstances, exasperasing to  those responsible for the city's service.  Reasonable use, and no abuse, of tlie  Avater supply will probably avoid all  danger of scarcity.  The citizens e�� "tfelson arc always interested in anything concerning Mrs.  Brougham, who, for several years was  a resident of this city. Mrs. Brougham  now lives in Vancouver, and as might  be expected- takes a prominent part in  the musical events of that city. Last  Thursday evening Oiibcrt & Sullivan's  opera, "Patience," was presented at the  Vancouver Opera House, and Mrs.  Brougham appeared iu the part of  " Lady Jane." The Vancouver papers  containing the criticism of the "performance are not vet to hand, but un-  doubtedly the role of "Lady Jane" was  well sustained.- Mr. -Brougham acted  as stage manager.-  A exander" Ball, who has bad considerable experience in such work, is  now training 100 voices for the production of Cinderella, the date of the  performance to be announced Jitter.  The rehearsals for the production are  ' being held at the.Openx House, and as  far as Mr.-Ball is able to judge t'be'Vna-  -    I' .' 7"  terial he has to work on is all that could  be desired. The youngsters are taking  a great interest in the work, and seem  to realize thai? apart from the amusement they are getting out of the rehearsals, they are also gaining the ad  vantage of a good "train hi g in voice culture and acting, Mr. Ball being a professional in both cases.-  The Kaslo Kootenaian is not inspired with an enduring love for Nelson. The Kootenaian may not be  aware of the fact, but it is a fact never-  - theless,-that-the-citizens_of-\Nels6n_for_  some years have*ceased to'regard Kaslo  in the light of* a-competitor from any-  point of'view. If" the Kaslo;��� paper  would devote the/ space, it has,: been  giving to abuse of'Nelsoivto sounding  the praises of its own town it might  then reasonably-cxpect' support from  business men who were being benefitted by the publication of a live local  newspaper.  W. O. Gillett lias secured the contract for the exhibition buildings, and  will begin work at once on their construction, ��� Tho plans show artistically designed buildings, and large  enough for.the purposes for which they  ave intended. As was generally understood, the building used last year  was only a temporary structure. This  year the directors have arranged for the  erection of' permanent- buildings designed with*.due regard to to the comfort and convenience of exhibitors and  visitors. When completed they will  ��� compaie favorably with any buildings  for the same purpose in the west.  expected that the ship can "be raised  and if this cannot be accomplished, at  least everything of value can be taken  out of ber. The great object is to recover the large amount of treasure  which the Islander was bringing from  the north, and whieh totalled something over half a million dollars. A  number of attempts have been made  to locate the boat, but were unsuccessful. These gave rise to many theories,  one of which was tbat the Islander was  shattered by the"descent to the bottom,  and that the swift current of Douglas  Channel scattered her over a wide area.  Another suggestion was that she struck  on a ledge of rocks and glanced off, but  the discovery made by the Neptune  Company indicates that as originally  announced, sbe struck a floating iceberg and sanlrsoon afterward.  The Economist warned the citizens of Nelson some months ago  of the dire consequences that might  follow the boycotting of John Houston by the licensed victuallers. It now  appears that numerous friends of that  much maligned statesman have resented the boycotso bitterly that they  have become water drinkers without  reducing their consumption ;. hence  the" warnings of the city engineer  that the civic water supply is seriously  endangered.  There will be a meeting of tbe Nelson-. Operatic_Soeicti'isbortlyi*q discuss  the proposal to give-an opera during  fair week. There is' a desire on the  part of some members of the society  toacquiesce in the popular demand for  "Erminiej" although others believe  "The Mascot" would be preferable. The  point in favor of the former is that it  has never been produced here", while  the latter has been given several times  by professionals.  OSveryone in the West knows George  H. Ham, of the C. P. JR. George had  a great streak of luck recently, having  been assigned to take a party of sixteen  young~la~di6s"to"the St." LbuisFair; Bo  well. did.he";fulfill bis engagement that  >he .was presented with a ring by the  young women. It is not stated that  -George revealed the fact that he was a  grandfather, of'a married man at all,  which, if he did not, may properly be  regarded as a case of receiving presents  under false pretences.  " J. E. Annable is corresponding with  several people in the East with the  view of obtaining several high-class attract ions for-tke Fair.  W.J..Taylor, the popular Victoria  barrister, suffered a severe loss one day  last week because of an accident which  happened to "Prince Budolph," a stallion valued at about $5,000. The animal broke its leg and had to be shot.  He is the second which the owner has  lost since be stocked his farm atrNortb  Saanich with thoroughbreds.  "When I was crossing the Atlantic,"  said a well-known citizen to a repre-  senlativeof this paper the other day,  " upon one occasion among the passengers wad an elderly Jew- of refinement and culture. There were also  some young, rather ill-bred Americans  of undoubted Anglo-Saxon race who  amused themselves and some other  travellers by their witty cuts at the  good-natured Hebrew. Or.ce, however, the joke was carried too far,  when a number of passengers were assembled in the smoking-room; and  the Jew turned upon his persecutors  and gave them the most perfect  tongue-lashing I ever had the pleasure  of listening to. 'Yes, gentleman,' he  said in winding up, 'I am a Jew, and  I am proud of it, proud of it gentlemen. I would have you remember  that my ancestors were princes, iu  Israel, when yours were bare-legged  barbarians.' And he left those young  men looking and feeling very small  and uncomfortable."  The Rossland Evening World suspended publication last week, on account of lack of support. The fact of  the matter is there is not now, and  never has been, room in Rossland for  two daily newspapers, and it is doubtful if the surviving paper is making  enough as a business enterprise to  keep its head above water. Nelson is  the' only city in the Kootenays that  can support two daily newspapers.  There is one h*>xe now that is a paying  investment, and it iu aniiouuccd.-that.  there will be another started on August 1st, by the only man in British  Columbia who really knows anything  a t all about i mining a newspaper.  Word comes from Victoria that the  "Neptune Salvage Company, of Tacotna,  has succeeded in locating the Islander  in 300 feet of water, and that there is a  possibility of ber being raised. Not  only has the steamer been located, but  the men have been down to her three  times. She is practically intact, but  has a large jagged "hole in her port  bow, as if fehe had struck on a rock instead of an iceberg. As the boat was  going at a high rate of speed when the  acsident occurred, it can be easily uh-  The Olympia Opera Company,  which was seen here last year, is  asking for an early date at the Opera  House.  Referring to the presence of a couple  of boys in the police court at Fernie,  the Free Press of that town offers a  little advice that might not comeamiss  even in Nelson : " There arc a number  of youths in tbis town who are shaping careers which will Dot bring honor  to themselves and to their friends.  These lads may be seen loafing around  at nights, hours after they should be  in bed. There is no getting away from  the fact that moso of the responsibility  for this state of affairs must rest upon  the parents, many of whom seem to  think that when boys reach that age  when tbey can work and provide "for  themselves their responsibility ceases.  That is the age when character is most  rapidly developed, and" consequently  the age when the greatest care should  be exercised. Disobedience is the first  discordant note which should warn  the watchful mother, father or legal  guardian that all is not right.' The boy  or youth who defies parental authority  is far on the road which ends iu defiance of the laws authority, and he is  then a criminal. Parents, ascertain  where your boys spend their spare  time, aud if you are not satisfied use  that authority which the law allows  you to eiFect a reform. The police have  hitherto showu considerable leniency  in the matter but they have assured us  lhat in future the offenders will be  dealt with as thev deserve. The fact  that the police think it uecessary to act  should have a startling significance to  the parents."  Mrs. Irvine, sister-in-law of Fred  and William Irvine, and son, of St.  John, N. B., are visiting their Nelson  relatives..  Mr. and Mrs. George Clark and son,  of Grand Forks, B. C, who were visiting Nelson for the past week, have returned home. Mr. Clark is the High  School teacher at Grand Forks.  the Prairie Capital. The worst feature  of the vicious tendencies of tlie Win-  nipeggers, is that immorality is-not  confined to those who make no pretence lo virtue, but has seized those  who should be looked up to as models  for tho community. A dNpalph from  Winnipeg to a Vancouver paper last  Monday announced that a sensational  incident with a more sensational story  behind it oceured in lhe Logan Avenue  Baptist Church tbe previous morning.  As is customary, members of the choir  had assembled in a room in the rear of  the pulpit preparatory to entering the  church in a body for tbe'scrvice. When  Mis3 Johnstone, one of the singers,  came in,' the majority of the ladies  walked out and took seats in tlie body  of the church. It was latter announced that the pastor, W.C. Vincent,  had left the 2ity the day before on a  year's leave of absence granted by the  board of managers. This was the result of an investigation which had been  going on for some time, and culminated  on Fiiday in a decision that the pastor  aud Miss Johnston had been guilty of  immoral relationsnip.- Rev. Mr. Vincent is a married man with a family.  Miss Johnstone is also a teacher in the  Sunday School, and iu the afternoon  when the classes assembled, none of  the children who had been under her  in strnction ,were present. The ease is  all the more sensational to the citizens  of Winnipeg in general because Rev.  Mr. Vincent was the most vigorous  worker of the Ministerial Association  d tiling the moral "eriuade which resulted in*?* tbe'breaking up of tlie immoral colony op Thomas street last  February. The investigation of the  pastor's conduct covers the period in  which that crusade wasgoingon. The  climax coming as it does in close succession to other allegations of immorality in church circles, has causedamnst  noticeable reversion of opinion among  those who applauded the action of the  Police Commissioners in declaring war  against the segregation of vice by the  enforcement of the law as demanded  by the ministers, and the breaking up  of the colony. Last Friday night the  sou of a prominent clergyman created  Winnipeg has long boasted that next  to Toronto it is the most righteous city  in Canada. Winnipeggers who visited  the coast were inclined to bold up their  hands in holy horror when they contemplated the wickedness of Victoria  aud other coast cities. It is quite true  Victoria never made any extravigant  claims as to the morality of her citizens,  yet with its wide-open policy, it has to  take a back seat when comjiared with  fman, he rides somewhat stooped.  j' Come on, men,' he exclaimed as he  ncurcd us. ' And are these the Canadians I have heard so much about.'  Tlie men looked at him, and then a  rough-and-ready westerner exclaimed,  without knowing to whom bespoke,  'You'll have to straighten up, old  man.'  " Tho commander only smiled, and  after he had mingled among the men  he said, ' Well, I guess I won't have to  tell you to straighten up, but you are  not long and lanky like I am.' From  that time until he entered Ladysmith  he continued to grow in th e affections  of the men, showing himself in every  instance one of themselves.  ews of the  M  mes  s  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  " I remember one day were were up  on a kopje watching the Boers. It  was very hot and dry and the water  waggons could not reach us, We became very, very thirsty~witbout any  prospect of relieving our thirst. *\Lord  Dundonald came riding up to us.  " ' Is there anything you want?' he.  asked.  " ' We would like a little water very  much,' Treplied.  " He at once took his own water  bottle from his pocket and passed it  around unlil all the water was exhausted, but many of them were re-,  lieved."  " Lord Dundonald could appreciate  a joke as well as any one. As perhaps  you know we were given- a dog by  Peterboro' citizens for mascot. When  some of our company died we traiw-  ferred a number to the dog. One  day when we were out in the country,  and when provisions were getting  scarce, some of the men took to commandeering ��� sometimes, vulgarly  called looting. One of the men was  caught, and was to be tried beforo his  superior officer, Lonl Dundonald. He  was asked his number.  " ' Number 521.' he replied.  ''When next morning they called  'No. 521' it was found to be our mascot, the dog. His Lordship understood the joke, and the trial was postponed.  a stir~in the fashionable section of the  city where he resides by a fierce and  damaging assault on a well known citizen whom he surprised with his wife  in her bed-chamber. On Friday night  a squad of police made a raid in the  upper story of a block ou Market avenue east, and discovered the sixtecn-  year-cld daughter of another clergyman  among the female inmates.  E. C. Senkler, gold commissioner of  tbe Yukon, was in Nelson for a few  hours this week. He made a flying  trip to Poplar.  A veteran of the scenes and struggles  of South Africa was talking and Lord  Dundonald was his theme. Jn those  strenuous times, when the speaker was  a "hero," instead of a quiet unassuming citizen, he had been a member of  the Strathcona Horse, which was attached to the Third Light Brigade, of  which the noble Lord had been commander. Being in continual contact  with him he knew whereof he spoke.  "I tell you," he said enthusiastically  to a reporter of the Toronto Telegram,  "Lord Dundonald was one of thefiuest  officers who ever doned a uniform, and  every man liked liim."  Then by instance and illustration he  showed the*;reason why, for it is often  iu the little things that true greatness  is shown.  "I will never forget the first time  we met him," he went on. "It was on  Gogo Hill, and as he came riding up  of course no one knew him.   A tall  " Lord Dundonald had a great fondness for the wild songs of some of the  westerners.  " ' Would you have the kindness to  sing that again?' he would politely request, after eagerly applauding the  effort of some humble singer.  " Then on���Sunday afternoon he  would gather his men around him,  wherever possible, and give tbem a  straight talk on their moral life and  the importance of character. On Sunday night we would sing hymns and  Lord Dundonald would always lend  the singing.  "Yet he was always firm, independent and straightforward, and in constant touch with these qualities, is it  any wonder that the boys loved tbe  man whom the Empire cheered and  almost worshipped when Ladysmith  was relieved ?'  Rev. J. H. White, superintendent of  Methodist missions for British Columbia, is visiting Victoria after an extensive tour throughout the province. He  has reported conditions in the interior  to be very greatly improved over what  they were a couple of years ago. In  East Kootenay particularly is the outlook very bright, and Nelson is now  enjoying a measure of abundant prosperity. Marysville is enjoying a genuine boom and is probably the liveliest  town in British Columbia to-day. The  big smelter is now in operation and  times are lively. Mr. White is of the  opinion that the period of depression  in tbe interior has about passed.  Plioenix Pioneer.

Monday will be the monthly payday  at tbe Granby mines, the amount being well up to the average of late,  which is about ��40,000 for the month  for wages alone at the mines.  Work has  been discontinued on  the  Brey Fogle claim in Summit camp,  which has been shipping to the Granby  smelter.    Work is still going on at the  No. 38, and there is talk of diamoud  drill testing.  ~>  A diamond drill is now being used  at the 300 foot level of the Mother Lode  1  mine. Some work on the Primrose  claim, one of the Mother Lode group,  recently opened up an excellent body  of iron ore.  Up to the first of May there had been  done a total of sinking and raising,  5,705 feet; drifting and crosscutting,  17,093 feet; diamond drilling, 1,493 feet  at the Granby mines. "Up to tbe same  date shipments of ore were 1,194,008  tons.  F. C. Bailey recently ie turned from.  Spokane to resume development work  on his Providence camp claims, the  Excelsior, Frederick, etc. He was  gratified to find that the Great Northern-graders had dciie some excellent  work on his claims, cutting through an  ore body some 27 feet deep.  Last Friday the Providence Mining  Co. paid its fourth dividend of ten  cents per share, as previously announced, making about $11,000 so far  paid. Manager Mcintosh is now in the  east, looking up the $7,000 worth of  electrical machinery that it is intended  to equip the mine with.  Phil McDonald, one of the owners of  the rich Elkhorn mine, passed through  the city yesterday on the way to Spokane.

The  belief seems to be  general   in the East that  ttle Laurier Government will go the  country^ immediately after the  close of the  present session, which  ��� will come to au end iu a week or so.    In   all  probability, the elections will be held  in  OctoLer, but not  later than  November.    Word has gone forth  from  headquarters to   the  Liberal organizers in   Ontario.  There are   various  reasons given   fur this   sudden  change, but the most important one is that  the Dundonald incident and  the Premier's fatal   pronouncement against "dragooning  by  foreigners"   have  in-  fused'a sudden and very live element of uncertainty  into the question of tbe fate that awaits   tbe  Laurier  administration when   it  re-appeals  to   the   country.  The Ottawa  Citizen, supposed   to   be  well-informed  on matters of this kind, says that this doubt and uncertainty has appealed very vividly to the   promoters  of the Grand Trunk Paci6c goes without saying and  it is extremely unlikely that tbey will feel inclined to  incur large obligations daring  tbe   limited   period  which must in any case  elapse before   an election.  They naturally want to know where they are at, because "high finance" is an extremely sensitive factor  which demands the elimination of the greatest ratio  ofl uncertainty from any enterprise of the magnitude  oi nine figures.      The'same paper says that the,gov-  crnment, ou its part, while it may shrink from the  devil as represented by the chance of going Xo  the  country with the Dundonald   " foreigner"   incident  still fresh in the public mind, is afflicted wiih a nervous dread of the deep sea as represented by tl.e prospect of going" to the country next year with its railway policy a still nebulous, unrealized phantasy.   The  building  of a trail scon tin a 1 line is the" only item of  constructive policy which the Laurier administration  lias yet been in a position to submit to the public during its eight years of existence.     Already there has  been one  hirJch  in it, aud to finally go down to the  country with  the scheme sti 1 in the air   would be  fatal to  success;     With the prospect of an election  close at hand, it will be well for Conservatives in this  "ceustituency to  get ready for the  battle.     The   fact  thai the election here is to be held one moir.h  later,  should not be"allowed  to weigh in the matter.    The  chances are Lhat the-  Government will be defeated,  but should  it happen that  both parties were evenly  divided in. the result much  would depend upon tbe  seats.iu British Columbia where elections are to be  held a mouth later.  The suppression of Judge Britton's report   on the  Treadgold concessions is another nail in the coffin  of  he Laurier Government.  Montreal Scotchmen at a meeting decided to tender  a reception to Lord Dundonald iu the near future. The  date of the reception will be decided on later.  An air of mystery surrounds the visit of several  well known local capitalists to Poplar this week. It  is hinted that there have been several very rich discoveries made in the new camp within the past week  or so.  According to the London correspondent  of Dun's  Review, 'trade conditions in Great Britain are rather  ^contradictory just at present.    Money is cheap,   but  business as shown by railway ttaffic and bank clearings, i.s slack as a whole.* The weather is excellent  and  the harvest   promises lo be a   bumper one   all  rjuud but in the en.^ine-.-iing trade there is nothing  , save the most  pessimistic foicbodings  as  to  the fu-"  ' ture.    Consols have gone up, but speculation i.s stagnant, and the bears seem always to have the  best  of  the argument.    The fiscal  question  has  been  practically shelved, but a general election seems prQbable,  and this adds another disturbing element to the situ-  *!km.'.  The arrival ofthe Chinese at the Rand has, to  a certain extent, relieved the anxiety- as to the devel--  raent ofthe South African mines, but the rosy anticipations  which were formed   as   to  the  result of this  mive have yet to be realized.    In  the   labor  market  there has been a  slight increase   in tlie number  or  bands etnploj'ed in tbe cotton industry, while, on the  other   hand,   engineering   ancl   shipbuilding  works  have employed considerably fe>.ver   men.    The very  favorable weather ofthe past {six   weeks has had  an  excellent effect on crop prospects.'- Farmers are now  Jmsy gathering in what promises to be the finest hay .  Victoria is rapidly forgiug to the front as an art  centre. Mrs. William Davis, formerly of Nelson, is  about to open "a school of dramatic art" in-the capital city. If Mrs. Davis ever gives one of her aina-'  teur dramatic performances in Victoria, it wili in *all  probability instigate a riot.  Twelve years ago, Mr. Thomas Watson, novelist  and art critic, married Jean, eldest daughter of Hon.  J. C. Patterson, ex-M. P. and former Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba. "The ccuple moved to a West-  ern city, where Mr. Watson died a few weeks ago,  his remains being cremated. Last Thursday Mrs.  Watson returned to Windsor, Ont .bringing with her  the ashes of her husband, and cast them into the Detroit River, complying with his dying request.   ,  With -this issue, The Nelson Economist commences its eighth year of publication. It is now the  oldest paper in the city of Nelson, and bas never  missed an issue since it first started. At no time in  its history has this paper been a losing venture, but  each successive year has increased its assets, and today it is in a more prosperous condition than it has  been any time since its first publication. When it  cea es to be a profitable business investment, it wiil  close its doors. During the coming year, there -will  be several changes in The Economist, all of which  are calculated to benefit the community in which it is'  published, and the publisher, who depends upon it f- r  an existence.  Of course there are two sides to every question, but  in the dispute now taking place between the wholesalers of Nelson and tbe railway company, we do not  think thecompany will beable to justify its course in  assisting Calgary to invade a territory that by rights  belongs to Nelson. This frieght rate question has to  be settled sooner or kter, and if it is" not settled on an  equitable basis, aiid satisfactory to both parties to the  dispute, it can only result in friction.that must prove  disadvantageous to the company and the wholesale  interest of Netson. Aud one thing is certain, Nelson  business men are not going to stand idly by, aud permit Calgary wholesalers to monopolize the. territory  that by justice belongs to this city.  ��� -Thos. D'Arcy McGee was an Irish rebel. He cauie  to Canada, was oiie ofthe fathers of Confederation  and a monument to his memory is to . be erected on  lhe Parliament grounds, at Ottawa.
