 VOLUME VII.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1903.  NUMBER 2  Sir Job, MacdonaM's Wit POLITICAL GOSSI P  It has beeu said that Sir John Macdonald usually joked with a purpose,  unless ho might be talking merely to  entertain a friend in private. Many of  the dead statesman's jokes are still repeated omong his old friends at tbe  Federal capital. Following are a few  of the stories told by his friends :  Going  home one night, while  be  lived in  Toronto,  Sir John  met Mr.  L , the tea merchant, who, though  one of his many personal frieuds, was  a life-long Liberal. Sir John was a  little unsteady; and wishing company  home   said:   "L , I have known  you for twenty-five years, and you  have never given me a vote yet ; but,"  he added, as he took his friend's arm,  "You'vegot to support me this time."  Once afc a picnic his attitude on certain questions of religious bearing was  criticized. At that time be had in his  cabinet the late J. H. Pope, of Comp-  ton, Que., and J. C. Pope, of P. E. I.  "Why," said he, replying to the insinuations, "I am better ofF in that line  than even the Vatican, for I have two  Popes."  At the Provincial fair at Kingston,  in 1888, Sir John with Hon. Mr. Kirkpatrick and others were taken to see a  side show, consisting of the performance of some Viennese lady acrobats,  when Mr. Kirkpatrick asked, "Is thia  the kind of an introduction you give  us to an agricultural fair?" '�� Why, of  course," quickly explained Sir John,  "we always show the calves first."  a hundred rams of a new breed. He  had forgotten tbe name of the breed,  and while he hesitated at tbe word,  John A. suggested, iu a stage whisper,  "Hydiaulie rams!"  One evening Lady Macdunald and  Sir John were entertaining Sir Hugh  Allan, when Lady Macdonald solicited  from Sir Hugh a contribution in aid of  some church work she had in hand.  Sir Hugh hedged and pleaded inability  to give what she asked, but sbe good-  naturedly laughed oft the plea, and  told bim he could not take all his  money with him when he died. "No,"  remarked Sir Job n playfully, ''it wou Id  soon melt if he did."  The Hon. Sjdney Smith was a former minister who had charge of agriculture, but who was thought to be  rather deficient in his knowledge of  the subject. One day he was.'-expatiating on what the government were  doing in the interests of tbe farmer,  and was telling that they had imported  When Sir John went to Washington  in connection with the treaty with the  United States, the Canadian party  were treated to a boat ride on the Potomac. Sir John came early and alone,  and while waiting for tbe others to  come, a lady, the wife of a senator, fell  into conversation with him, when the  following dialogue ensued:  " I guess you are from Canada."  ���" Yes, ma'am."  "You'vegota very smart man over  there, tbe Honorable John A. Macdonald."  " Yes, ma'am, he is."  " But they say he's a regular rascal."  <c Yes, ma'am, he is a perfect rascal."  " But why do thoy keep such a mail  in power?"     ���  "Well, you seo, they cannot get  along without bim.'1  " But bow is thut? They sa}r he's a  reiki skalawag, and "  Just ibeu her husband, tbe Senator,  stepped up and said :  u My dear, let me introduce the  Honorable John A. Macdonald."  The lady's feelings can be imagined.  But; Sir John put Iter at ease, saying,  "Noav, don't apologize. All you've  said is perfectly true, and it's well  known at home." ���     "  N  ews of the  M  mes  Last week mention was made of the  revival in interest in mining. This  week it can be added that everything  points to a return to the prosperous  times of five and six years ago. As an  evidence of this, it is pointed out that  it is almost impossible to secure ahorse  ^atlany"of tbeliverystablesiirthe eityf  the demand for animals for prospectors  being so great. At Honeyman's foundry the men are working day and night  repairing mining /machinery and on  work that is required at once for the  mines. The revival is not only felt iu  the districts tributary to Nelson, but  the same reports come from all over.  Mines and claims that have been practically abandoned for a few years are  again being opened up and developed.  The news from Poplar Creek is that the  first reports were in error only in not  telling half of what has beeu discovered. It is reported from Kaslo that  business is reviving and that the merchants are preparing for a heavy fall  trade, all of which is pleasing iutclli-j  gence.  BOTJNDRAY MINING NOTES.  The feature of tbe political situation  this week is the activity the Liberals  are manifesting everywhere. Nominations have been made in a large number of constitiicnces aud preparations  are under way for conventions in tbe  districts where selections have not already been made. By some it is believed that the Liberals will gain an  advantage by having their candidates  in the field aftbrding the latter every  opportunity of making any kind of  combinations they May desire, while  others think that the three mouths or  more intervening between now and  election will exhaust the patience and  ammunition of tbe candidates and  their friends. It must be confessed  that the Liberal party is making good  selections, the men now before the people representing the strongest elements  iu the party. Ko doubt the same discretion will be observed by the Conservatives when the time comes to select tlieir men. The feeling isgrowing  that the Conservatives should not have  delayed their nominations so long, for  the one reason, if no other, that the  Liberal candidates will have the ground  thoroughly canvassed before the others  get in the field.  .There is very little new to report in  the local campaign. Mr. Lennie is  gaining ground, and Mr. Taylor is canvassing everyone regardless of party  politics. In the Ymir riding, Harry  Wright will get the nomination in the  Conservative interest. It appears he  has received greatencouragementfrom  many parts of the riding.  the electors there believe in practical  methods, practical people and practical  measures.  The time for registering of votes will  soon have expired. Is your name on  the list?  The Liberals of Cranbrook -will hold  a nominating convention on tbe 29th  of this month. '  Tlie Cranbrook Herald believes that  it will;l^e a longtime before Unpeople  of that district will elect a Socialist, as  The name of William Hunter, the  well known merchant, is mentioned in  connection with the representation, of  the Slocan in the Conservative interest.  Mr. Hunter's long business career admirably fits bim for a legislator.  An effort is being made by Nelson  Socialists to bring outa Socialist-Labor  candidate.  W. J. Snodgrass, of Okanagan Falls,  has been selected as the Liberal nominee for the Stinilkameen district.  The Liberals of. Kamloops district  will hold a convention on the 29th to  nominate a candidate.: It is probable  that the nomination -will go to F. J.  Deane. .''���''  contest Richmond riding in the interests of the Liberal party.  It is reported that Palph Smith will  re-enter provincial politics and that  the Liberal and Labor parties in Nanaimo have amalgamated their forces.  It is understood that Hon Robert  Green and Hon. Charles Wilson are  well satisfied with their mission to the  east on the question of better terms.  About 300 votes have been registered  in Phoenix already. The Phoenix  vote at the last election was 1C7.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, secretary of the Interior District Liberal  Council, has been through the Similkameen on an organizing tour.  J. C. Drewery, of Mayie, is in the  city. He is in the field for the nomination to be made at. the Liberal convention, which will be held at Cranbrook  on the 20th. He says Dr. King does  not want tlie nomination.  J. R. Brown has been nominated for  Greenwood in the Liberal interest.  P. Herman has been nominated by  the Skeena Liberals to make the fight  against Clifford. s-  The expectation now is that the  names on the voters' list tor the Greenwood' District will reach between 600  and TOO.  Some 800 voters having now registered, the, list for Kamloops riding is  not far from completion, so far as tlie  number of names in it is concerned.  A New Westin inater rumor says that  Mayor "W. H. Keary will be nominated  as the Liberal, candidate in New Westminster, and-J. C. Brown,, wheiohas  been, spoken of as likely to run, will  The independents ��� of Ladysmitb  have invited David Wilson, one of the  three discharged pit bosses, to run independent of all parties. Mr. Wilson  has the matter under consideration.  The full court has decided that collectors of votes can take the declarations of those claiming the right to  register outside of the province.  It is hinted that Fred Starkey feels  a trifle "sore" because some one ha*  not suggested his name as a candidate  for Ymir. This matter should be attended to at once.  According to the Slocan Drill, by  nominating John L. Retallack on Tuesday, to contest the Kaslo riding against  Hon. Robt. Green, minister of mines,  tlie Liberals have practically made a  free gift of the- election t07 the Conservatives.  JLyeo the   X. hirteenth  Right Rev. Bishop Dontenwell supplies the Vancouver News-Adveitrser  with the following short sketch of the  life of Leo Xirr..  Leo XI EI, Pope, was born at Carpi ne-  to, a town of 5,000 inhabitants, situated  in the Volscian mountains, near Velle-  tri, on tbe 2nd of March, 1810. His father was Count Lodovico Peeci,and his  mother was Anna Prosperi-Buiz. He  was tbe sixth child and was given the  nanies Joachim Vincent Raphael Lode-,  vico.  When he was eight years old he was  sent to the Jesuit's College in V iterbo.  There he made his First Communion in  1821. After his mother's death, in 1824,  lie was sent to reside with his uncle in  Rome. There he contin ued hisstudies  in the Roman College. He studied Mathematics and Philosophy and passed  two successful examinations, one at tbe  Rome College and the other at the Roman University or Sapienza. He then  studied law and diplomacy at the  Academy of Noble Ecclesias tics.  On March 14th; 1837, he was named  Prelate of the Pope's Household aud  Referendary of the Segnatura. The  same year he was successfully ordained  to 'th e sacred orders ending with Priesthood on December 23id. He was  named Delegate to the Province of  Btnevento, a part of the Papal States,  on February ,15th, 1838. then infested  with brigands. In three years the Province was completely regenerated, under his firm administration.  On June 17th, 1841, he was transferred to Perugia, where be performed tbe  the same efficient work as In Bcne-  vento. a        :������..,  -  On January 27tb, 1843, be waspreco-  nized Bishop, and , on February 10th,  following, he was "consecrated under  the title of Bishop of Dainictta in Par-  tibus Infidelium.  .He was then sent as Nuneio to Belgium, to the Court of King Leopold,  and resided in Brussels. After a residence of some three years in Belgium,  he was named Bishop of Perugia, and  CHERRY CREEK IS RICH  So Says Frank Fletcher, Who A Base Attack on the Catho  TRIBUNE AND RELIGION  Since eight furnaces have been in  blast in Boundary smelters, requiring  more .men at the mines generally,  there has been a scarcity of men for  mine work.

The third furnace has been received  from Spokane at the Sunset smelter at  Boundary Falls, and a force of men are  now at work putting it in place.  So far about ten cars of ore nave been  shipped from the dump ofthe Morrison  mine, Deadwood camp, to tho Mother  Lode smelter. It is expected that about  1,000 tons will be shipped altogether.  Last Saturday was the nnniversary  of the shipping of the first car of-.<��� re  out of Phonix, the event occurring July  11,1900. Since then the Granby mines  have shipped a total of over 7S0,000 tons  of ore.  From the last car of ore from the E,  P. IT. mine D. W. McViear received  $2211 net, or an average of $ 110 per ton.

Some very fine specimens of ore are  being shown from the Bachelor, on  Twelve Mile, on which some work hits  been done.  Frank Fletcher, P. L. S., has returned to the city from the Cherry  Creek country, where be has been for  some weeks. This district is situated  between Fire Valley, North Fork of  Kettle River and Cherry Creek. The  present operations are. on the Cherry  Creek slope, consisting of the Cherry  Gold Mining Co. and the old Mona-  sliee mine, and about forty men are  employed. The camp is 47 miles from  Vernon and about 35 miles from Arrow Lake, and is easy of access. On  the main Cherry Creek, placer mining  was carried on 80 years a go and considerable gold extracted, and lias been  worked more or less ever since by  Chinamen.

The communication  is not published for the reason that  this paper has no desire to give publicity to anything that will arouse an  intolerant spirit iu the community,  but it can be' truthfully said that the  sentiments expressed by tlie Tribune  in no way reflect the opinions of Protestant Conservatives.

'^Klin^Gr^evlin^h^s^just^returdiBct  from a trip to Poplar Creek, where he  remained ten days. During his 'visit  there he made four locations between  Cuscade Creek and Poplar Creek. Mi.  Devlin believes that this is the richest  territory in British Columbia. He has  prospected in every portion ofthe province, and asyet bus not come across  anything as rich as what he saw during  his absence. Of those who struck it  rich, perhaps Henry Magnusson bsia  been tbe luckiest. He located three  claims with a two foot-ledge, the roek  being literally covered with gold. On  the east side of Magnusson some men  from Trout Lake have a three-fool  ledge also heavily impregnated with  gold.

At the same  time he was also named Cardinal, but  owing to the death of Pope Gregory  XVI, his elevation to the Cardinalate  did not take place then. He took possession of the See of Perugia, on July  26th, 1846, and from tbat moment gave  all his energy to the wise and energetic  government of that important diocese.  During his occupancy ofthe Episcopal  See there the Pledmonteseinvaded the  Papal States. Owing to his energetic  protest against the usurpation, he was  imprisoned by the Piedmontese.-<���  He was created Cardinal on December  19th, 1853, by Pius IX. On September  2lsfc, 1877, he was named Camerlingo',  with residence near the Pope. He became also member of several of the  Roman Congregations which assist the  Holy Father in the Government ofthe  Church.  Pius IX died on February 7th, 1878.  The Conclave for the election bf the  new Pope waa immediately summoned.  Sixty-two Cardinals met on the 18tb of  the same month, and Cardinal Pecci  was elected to succeed Pius IX, by 44  votes out of 62, on the 20th. He chose  to be called Leo, being the 13th of that  name. He was crowned on March 3rd,  following, and took possession of St.  Peter's Chair as the 2C3rd Pope.  During tbe course of tbe present year'  Leo XIII celebrated his 93rd birthday  his 60th anniversary as Bishop, bis 50th  as Cardinal and his 25th as Pope.  During his long reign hewrotenum-  erous encyclicals on Philosophy, Theology, and Social questions. They were  most timely and they indicate the genius of the Pontiff. He was really a  'UJuaaen'ln Coelo"���a light in the heavens���by the lucidity of'his doctrine  and the power of his eloquence. Many  of his predecessors may have equalled  him, few have surpassed him, in merit,  while probably none equalled him in  the number of years of bis mortal life,  and in the number of his subjects���var-  . iously estimated at between 250,000,000  and 3OO,60O;0OO souls.

The  succession of victories which had  crowned the efforts of the BoyalCity  p layers "f6TlraaiTyryears~pisfc7 'tlufseries.  of championships they captured, were  palpably disheartening. In fact, it became monotonous, this overwhelming  superiority of the team from the banks  of tbe Fraser, an das fur as the Island  was concerned it was a contributory  factor to a decadence of interest. Saturday's game, while not definitely establishing for the Vancouver aggregation  the championship, appears to have  broken the spell which a world of assiduous training,a devotion tothesport  and an all absorbing pride in their  achievements had worked Tor the New  Westminster team.

Manitoba has sent to the Laurier  government a message that cannot be  misunderstood. It ivas delivered in  the most effective manner and reflect.-  in a. marked degree the opinion of tlie  West. Moreover, it is tbe forerunner  of another message, which will be sent  from British Columbia on the evening  of October 31. The return to power of  the Eohlin government by a decisive  majority is also a tribute to the aggressive railway policy so wisely inaugurated by Hugh John Macdonald  three years ago and carried out by the  leader wtio succeeded him. Manitoba has learned a lesson that other  provinces might study with profit, and  tbat is to look after themselves, and  not place any dependence on the government at Ottawa. That government  is too Okucli occupied 'providing ollices  iOr a horde of hungry orii..'e-seeUer* t;.  giveany attentiou to tlie \y:mts of-the.  people. It relies cutin-ly ou its est-  pacity for bribing-" :..lhu electorate as' si.  means of maintaining itself .in oflice,  ignciing statesmtiiisliip and ability to  govern tbe country on lines that would  win icspect and lhe ondoraution of the  electorate. Sir AVilfrid Laurier Lias  listened only to tbe voice of Hon Clifford Sifton, aud he may now realize  that the opinion of the West in no  way coincides with that of his blind  guide. Tt is believed that a general  election will take place in the autumn.  If so, the Laurier government will find  that its support from the West has  dwindled into insignificance. The  Liberals have had their day.  The death of His Holiness the Pope,  removes not only the greatest power in  the most potential religious organization in the world|-but also one of the  wisest diplomats of the age. In litatii  respw-ts Pope Leo XIII. was the most  extraordinary man who ever ruled  from the Vatican. Aged though lit  was, he kept in close touch with the  advancement and progress of his ds��y,  -niiilby-carefulHitvesti^iitionHH-was^cn-H  nbled at all times to Assimilate politict.1  science with tli�� fundamental trull is o:  his church. 13y his modi-ration in religious matters, be 'gained for himself r.  place tn the afleetibti of all religious do  iiouiiuatiouH, and as the end drew  near, he commaiultd the sorrow anil  reverence of the whole Christian  world.  ii in ns( realizing that it would be in execrable taste and the cheapest kind of  cheap advertising to use their own columns to trumpet their virtues to the  world. Gold Commissioner Renwick  has probably written more editorial  matter for Nelson papers than any man  in tbe Kootenays. Can tbe oldest Inhabitant of tbe Kootenays remember  that at any time during tbe periods he  had editorial charge of a paper the  name of Mr. Renwick appeared in the  editori.il columns of that publication?  And il is tbe same all the world over���  the editor avoids as much as possible  the use of his own name iu his paper.  Not so, with Mr. Houston, however.  Flo indulges in the most fulsome praise  of himself six days a week, to the disgust ofthe readers ofthe Tribune. Mr.  Houston will probably return next  week, when wc will again r.'ad ofthe  wonderful achievements of John Houston, tbe writer of tbe paragraphs pos  sibly not realizing that his repeated  references to himself are laughed at  outside of Nelson and nauseating in tlie  extreme to every reader of tbe paper he  controls; although, by the way, there  are others who are claiming that tbey  recently called Mr. Houston down on  a matter of policy.  contributed so much towards keeping  in power. Mr. McBfide's government  had nothing to do with it, and is in no  way responsible for its dangerous condition. If anyone is to blame, it Is tbe  government with which Mr. Martin  was so closely allied.  The Kaslo Kootenaian last week devoted three columns of its editorial  space to The Nelson Economist.  The Kootenaian does not attempt to  disprove much that this paper has  said, but uses various extracts as texts  of sermons to prove that the Hon.  Robert Green is not a good man. If  we wanted to set the standing of any  man in a community wc would never  think of consulting his sworn enemies.  The Kootenaian has never been  friendly to Mr. Green and its opinion  of that gentleman should not be regarded astiltogether unbiased and conclusive. From other sources we learn  tbat there is not tlie slightest doubt or  the'election of Mr. Green, which conflicts somewhat with the statements of  our old and esteemed friend who dictated most of the editorial matter in  the Kootenaian last week. However,  Mr. Green has more to fear than the  editorials in the Kaslo paper. When a  detective is called in to investigate a  robbery at a private residence he invariably turns first to some member of  the household in the hope of discovering theculprit. Mr. Green would do  well to keep an eye on some of his political household.  Those who talk so much against the  employment of Chinese as house servants know very little about the subject, surely. It is next to impossible  to get a good servant girl in Nelson.

This accounts for the fact that the i taint  of John Houston does not appear ii.  every line in the paper. The proverbial  modesty of editors is absent in Mi.  Houston. Kditors as a usu.il thing  avoid printing their names in their papers, und only do so when tbey can uot  passably avoid it. There are many mei  ���who have run papers for years without  the name of the publisher once appear  hardworking "general" such as she is  at home or in the Australian colonies,  who is difficult to procure at any time,  but in all kinds and classes of women  who-assist the mistress of a home to  lighten ita labors. There always has  been a decided aversion a-uing bur female population to becoming domestic  servants, and the outlook for those who  require sueh services is by no means en-  co.imgiti<r. This is a thing thut is  growing all over tbe world, and it may  be put down largely to the result of education, the growth of factories of every  description and tho increased facilities  opened up on every bund for the employment of women. Tho average  Chinese servant isa hundred times better oil* than tho average slavey in England, where a girl can't have a "sweetheart" or any friends to come and see  her iu the house where she is working,  and where she must work sixteen bom's  out of twenty-four, whether well or ill.  There is a good deal of inconsistency in  those who prate,about theciuployment  of Chinese and ask " what will we do  with our girls" when "ourgirls'' won't  go out to service.  Rev. John McDotigall, who knew the  Northwest well, long before it became  a part of Canada, feels sure that Canada can easily assimilate the cosmopolitan people flowing in there, says the  Hamilton Times. He himself has seen  the Doukhobors, with 500 years of slavery dragging at their heels, trail into  the great west, and in three or four  years thereafter he has seen those men  and women stand erect as free Canadians. Remembering when men in  the Northwest lived almost exclusively on fish and buffalo meat, Mr.  McDougnll has endless faith in the future of the country. He says that if  not a grain of corn were to be raised,  it would be vastly wealthy in the cattle, the sheep, and otheraniinals, which  could, and are, in fact fed in it. lie  has seen from the hilltops half a million of God's cattle spread out on the  plains. Then tbe climate is such that  human life is abundantly healthy and  men and women grow strong in its  bracing air.  Our New Stock of  WALL  An "Elector" writes the Daily News,  that he hopes the Liberal party will be  successful, and that,"it will relegate to  obscurity the hungry vultures and  fawning fossils that have infected the  civil service ofB. C. for so many years."  What about the "hungry vultures ami  fawning fossils" who are waiting for  the offices to become vacant ?  Perhaps it is only justice to a deserving nian to explain that the Del.  Smith who eloped with bis typewriter  from Rochester, Indiana, and is now  living in Victoria, is not the editor of  the Ymir Mirror, who is not that kind  of a person.  The Liberals are very much interested in the selection of Conservative  candidates. It is only natural they  would like to have the weakest men  for their opponents.  Robert Green beat John L. Retallick  in 1898, and there are any number of  people who are willing to stake a few  dollars that he can do the trick again.  Already preparations are being made  for the Nelson exhibition.

If he studies so much,  it means ho haa need to learn; if he  Deeds to learn, it means he doos not  know; if he does not know, ho is an ignoramus."  A doctor without patients is like a  lamp without oil. Without other resources, forced therefore to earn a living hy hook or by crook, up to this time  the poor devil had not been able to pay  even for the water he drank. He decided tliero would have to be a change, so  one day he managed to spread abroad  through all. Oucuguano the report that  his scienco was so sublimo and nil now  erful that not only could he heal tlie  siek���mere child's' play���but raise the  dead as well; a miracle of God, surely.  And this miracle he promised to perform openly in broad day in the graveyard amid the multitude.

That Sunday, long before noon, the  graveyard was as jammed as is the  church on Holy Buster day. True to  his word, on the second stroke of the  hell appeared the doctor, all in black.  He elbowed his way to the steps of the  central cross. Tliero he saluted the  crowd, spat on the ground, blew his  nose autl began:  "My dear friends, I have promised to  bring one of your dead back to life. I  intend to keep my word.

A very large  Baymond-Wbiteomb excursion is included in the number.    Very many ol  the tourists passed along the line of tin-  C. P. B., and a little surprise is expressed tbat some of them were nol  sent over the Arrow Lakes and into  Nelson.     The explanation id made in  certain quarters that last year when  these excursions were being made up  the   C.  P.. K. people  could   not   get  any  answers   to their letters to the  Kootenay Tourist Association and were  compelled to cancel this portion of the  proposed trip of the tourists for the  year.   If this explanation is a true one,  it has been a most unfortunate thing  for Nelson and other Kootenay points,  -where the scenery is generally admitted  to be the grandest in the world.

At .Revelstoke, .July' 22, Charles A.  Prosserand Miss-Anna Carey, of Nelson, were made mail and wife. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Father  Lardon. Mr. and Mrs. Piossci- have  many friends iu Nelson who "will extend to them tlieir heartiest congratulations.  The Nelson board of trade should  lose no time in-pressing upon the government the necessity of rectifying the  mail service to the Lardeau. Nelson  cannot afford' to lose the trade of tlie  camps now ripening up there.  LACROSSE.  Fernie defeated Lethbridge at Fernie  last week, the score being 10 so 1.  A Nelson lacrosse team will play  at Rossland next Thursday. The team  has not yet been selected.  Nelson players are getting in some  good practice these evenings in anticipation of several important matches  within the next few months.  ft is expected Nelson and Rossland  will compete vvith one of the coast  teams, probably Vancouver, at the  Rossland celebration next month.  The S>uri8 lacrosse team will play  Nelson team ou Saturday August 1, and  the following.Monday. Souris at oue  time had one of the best teams in Manitoba, and from all accounts the aggregation to play here are able to hold  their own any place.  The clearance sale now going on at  Fred Irvine & Co.'a-has been a great  success.  J. Henry, a business man of Ains-  Worth, was ih the city this week. He  reports that recently a large number of  men have gone to work in the mines  in that camp and that the prospect? for  the season are bright.  What Fred Starkey told Premier McBride is now public property, but lio \v  far he succeeded in'convincing Mr. McBride is another matter. -.There is considerable discount on lib assertions in  this community.  Vancouver has already two or three  bouses of amusement, nut some enter-  --prising gentleman is about to build another, in which a stock company  will  play the year round at popular prices.  The Nelson city band treated a  large audience to a concert at the corner of ward and Baker streets last  night. This musical 'organization  shows marked signs of improvement.  Miss Eva'M. Ilunie camo up from  Victoria Thursday evening. Previous  to lier departure from the .capital,-her  schoolgirl friends gave her a hearty  send-off.  Miss Mabel Irving, who has been  "visiting with her uncle and aunt. Aid.  and Mrs. Irving, of Nelsoif, for some  time, has left for her home in the East.  This has been another good week :it  the hotels. Among the nan es on the  registers are those of many who arc interested 111 the mining industry.  The reason WI13' Fred Starkey refers  to Premier McBride as "Pick," is to  show the public that he and Mr. Me  Bride are old college chums.  Patenaude Bros, have added two  more men to their manufacturing department.  The American- Rare Metals Co. have  purchased a site upon which to erect a  smelter ut Kingston.  ; 'In pyrssing take a look at the Simplex  pianolo now in the window of the  Canada Drug & Book Co.
