NUMBER  'i4/  N  ews of the  M  mes  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Phoenix Pioneer.  Ore shipments from the unties of  the Boundary total exceeding 200,000  so far for 1004.  The East Kootenay Coal & Coke  Co., of Grand Forks, will incorporate  with a capital of $100,000.  Diamond drilling at the Volcano  mine, on the Nortli Fork, is reported  to have been temporarily suspended  on account of water.  On the Don Pedro, being operated  by the Chicago.Bntish Columbia Mining Co., the contractors now have the  shaft down about 75 feet.  But one of the two steam shovels is  now being used at the Granby mines.  As soon as the snow is gone both  machines will be put in commission  again.  H. H. Shallenberger recently sold  his Alameda claim, Deadwood Camp,  adjoining the Mother Lode, to Minneapolis capitalists, who expect to develop  the property. -  Jay P. Graves, general  manager of  the Granby Co., left for Montreal last  Saturday.     As  usual, following such  ' trips, some interesting information is  likely to be -forthcoming.  While water preventsshipping from  the Senator, Summit camp, for the  present, development is being con Unwed.and before long ore will be going  out to the Granby 'smelter again.   ...  Fraser-'Bros, have su ;p3:i le 1 ���(level-'  opment on the Evening Star in Wellington camp, on account of too much  water. Tlie now shaft is now down  about 45 feet, and is in excellent copper ore.  The British Columbia C'-pper Co.  is  Providence Mining Co. has arrived in  Greenwood from Chicago.  The Minnie claini in Summit camp  will ship to the Granby smelter at an  early date. There tire 90 tons of 525  ore on the dump. The property is  owned by Dr. Averill, of this city.  Horses are now used at the 300-foot  level of the Old Iron-sides mine for  hauling ore cars. When the No. 4 tunnel is connected with that level, in the  course of two or three months, the  horses can he taken out that way.  Next month new work is to be undertaken at the Oro Denoro, Summit  camp, which will result in the shipments being increased to 200 or 250 tons  daily. At present about 150 tons are  being shipped, the output going entirely to the Granby smelter.  Forces at some of the high grade  Boundary mines are being increased  somewhat. The Elkhorn has added a  few men and the Providence, also,  making nearly GO men employed at  these two properties. Both are shipping ore at the rate of ��� a car or two  every mouth.

The grade of ore on the Defiance is  high and the location good.  Grand Porks Ncws-Giv/cltc.  A force 100 men is now steadily employed at the Mother Lode mine in  Deadwood camp..  Mark F. Madden,  president of the of them came down here  The lessees of the Alberta have  ceased work. . They expect to send  out two-thirds of a car -.if ore in a few  days.  Al Teeter has purchased from John  Skinner a third interest in the Federal  claim, on Lemon creek. It was formerly the Golden Wedge.  Acting under orders from England,  tlie Wakefield shut down Saturday,  throwing 15 men out of work.     Some  B,  oundary xjre Ohipments  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  At a concert to be given at Kaslo next Monday  evening in aid of the Hospital the two principal  choruses from the " Chimes of Normandy" will be  given, a large number of young vocalists of the city  taking part. This is a new departure at concerts,  but we doubt not but it will be appreciated by those  iu attendance. The choruses of the " Chimes"* are  about the m.ost attractive thing in that opera. If the  Kaslo singers are able to handle the choruses well,  they should in a short time be iu a position to give  the whole opera.  "Prof." Hepburn threatens us with another  "dramatic" production. As yet no oue has applied  for an injunction to restrain the " Prof." .Iron-  further inflictions of this character on the heretofore  peaceably disposed population of Nelson.  The   services  in the  various  churches yest rday  were well attended.  The Nelson fire brigade by quick action prevented  what might have been a serious conflagration this  morning. About half-past two o'clock the premises  occupied by " Silver King Mike," on Hall street,  were discovered to be on fire. The fire hall was telephoned aiid.in four minutes the brigade was on hand.  With good work the blaze was soon extinguished. If  the fire had made but little more headway, it is probable the whole block would have been burnt up. As  it was, only about ten dollars' worth of damage was  done.  The Launch Club is making preparations for its  jiew boat house, and the work of getting ready for  the launches already here and the new ones soon to  arrive will be completed in a short time. No city in  proportion to its population in British Columbia will  have as many fine launches as Nelson this summer.  All Fools' Day was duly celebrated in Nelson.  Many were the victims of harmless trick, old boys as  well as young boys. Of course there is always some  idiot who in order to make a fool of someone else  :onlj'-succeeds-in-making-aiL-ass-of-himseif.,-=-Thisavas.  the case with the fellow who turned in the fire alarm  at 2 o'clock in the morning.

This would  mean of course, that the St. Eugene would begin  operations, which would mean a great deal for Moyie,  and all of that part ofthe district. Mr. Smith, who  was the engineer when the mine was last in operation,  has been sent for and arrived iu Moyie last Saturday.  It will be his duty to get the compressor and pipes in  running order. Quite a number of men have been  employed the past month, and everything indicates an  early start.  I don't know what may happen. I may speak for  an hour. I would like," he went on, after a pause,  "to step down and look at mj-self for one moment  here.".  ; Turning to the serious drama, he observed that it  vvas "a little tired. Nearly all serious plays deal  with unpleasant subjects, yet serious people are not  soj bad as they are represented on the stage."  Then he set out to give his idea of a serious play,  describing tbe entrance of a lady who says to her husband " How pale you are !" to which there comes no  reply, only the husband's soliloquy, " Ah, if she but  knew."  Both go out and return. The lady takes off her  hat because she looks better without it. Her name  of course, depends on the theatre where the performance takes place, but we will call her Eleanor.  "Have you discovered my guilty secret ?" she  asks her husband.  "Have you discovered mine?" is his response.  ���'-When we met in Oxford street I thought you had  a past."  " I thought as. everyone had a past, I'd have one,"  replies the heroine.    "What's to be done ?"  " What's to be done with the child," he demands.  " There is no child."  "I forgot."  ������" Bring in a child���any child !"  And the curtain descends as he places his hand on  his head. But not before the husband says, " I cannot leave you.  Why should you be left and not me ?"  The modern comedy Mr. Barrie likened to an overdressed doll. To-Mr; Mr. Pinero's influence, be de-  ^cloired tbe stage owes deep thanks. -  " j-have a passionate belief," he concluded, " in  the repertoire theatre, and.if it should be established  here I would send every play I wrote to it in prefer^  ence to any other theatre."  L  P,  ocal and   X rovincial  A fire alarm  system has been in-j    The high  and public schools closed  stalled at Phoenix. Thursday for Easter holidays.  Harry "Wright,  M. P. P., returned  from the coast last night.  Wm. Toye has opened a grocery in  the store formerly occupied by J. G.  Simpson.  Utah farmers are inspecting ranches  in the Kettle river valley with a view  to locating.  P. Lamont, 'manager of the Canada  Drug and Book Company, left for the  coast last night on a business trip.  The trouble at the Enterprise mine  has been readjusted, and development  work will proceed at once.  The hotels were all crowded Good  Friday, many having come in from  the mines to spend the holiday in the  city.  J. G. Wilson, of the Lake of the  Woods Milling Co., was in the city  this week. Mr. Wilson is thinking of  taking up his residence in Nelson  again.  Mr3. J. A. Kelly, of Fairview,  last Thursday sprained her shoulder.  The inconvenience and pain are quite  as great as- if the shoulder had beeu  dislocated.  5.S22  1,750  10,798  1,903  Every other man you met on the street this afternoon had a fish-pole and the lake is crowded with  small   boats and launches.  390  924  Total, tons.       . 684,420  Mr. J. M. Barrie was iu excellent vein at the annual dinner of the Playgoers' Club at the Hotel Cecil,  says tbe London Daily Mail.  He spoke in reply to the toast of ' The Drama,"  proposed by Mr. A. B. Walkley, who said that the  real cause of the Drama's trouble was a dearth of  playwrights. <>  There was a great outburst of cheering when Mr.  Barrie rose to reply.  " This is the first time iu my life," he began, " that  200,127      10,778   I have been the guest ofthe evening anywhere, and  210  200  135  AFTER   FUZZY-WUZZY.

Hon. R. F. Green, Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, passed  through Nelson Wednesday returning  to Victoria after a short trip through  his constituency.  David Wilson, school inspector for  the Kootenays, has gone to the coast.  John Elliot, of the law firm of Elliot  & Lennie, of this city, has been reelected, a bencher of the British Columbia Law society.  Mrs. W. G. Lillie has left for Lewis-  ton Idaho, where she will spend a few  days with relatives before proceeding  to Dawson to join her husband. -  R. J*. Clark, principal of the Nelson  High School, left for the Coast Thurs:  day evening to attend the Teachers'  Convention. He will be absent about  a week.  It is stated that the Kootenay Itivei'  Lumber Co., which has its mill  located on the waterfront of this city,  will resume operations Monday next;  This will give employment to about 40  men and it is expected that during ihe.  busy season the plant will be operated  night and day.  Messrs. Horst Brothers, of Agassi;*,  intend putting in about 200 acres of  hops this spring, which will bring  their acreage under crop up to between  400 and 500 acres.  =���A=quan tityiof-24ineh=-rivetedopipe  arrived at Ashcroft a few days ago for  the Consolidated Cariboo Co., Bullion.  Mr. Hobson states thiitheisimportinir  an hydraulic elevator with which he  will work the bedrock gravels. This  system of working the bedrock gravels  will do away with the necessity of tunneling the rim to make grade.  A company has been formed at Ntin-  naimo to exploit the herriug industry  on a large scale. The fact that some  Vancouver men were over looking into  the situation, and.that Seattle has been  heard, from on the subject, has aroused  Nanaimo people to the necessity of talc-'  ing action at ouce unless they are prepared to see a golden opportunity slip  through their fingers. The new" coiii*'"  pany is headed by ex-Mayor Quenn'cll.  For some time pasta Victoria syndicate has been busycompletingarrange-  ments through J. Butchart, the promoter, for the promotion of a company  to engage in the operating of an extensive cement manufacturing plant at  Saanich Arm. The scheme has now  advanced sufficiently for to permit of a  definite announcement being made  that--the success p^the enterprise-is insured. A huge plant will be put in  position at Carter Bay, where there exist vast deposits of limestone capable of  being manufactured into the finest  quality of Portland cement, and as the  necessary capital is available, a start on  the project will be made at an early  date.  Mi  O  llinery v^/penings  THR F1.KD IRVINE CO., I,TD.  The millinery openings of this firm  become more interesting each succeeding year to the feminine portion of the  population of Nelson. This year the  works of art shown are even more attractive than formerly, und the  spacious room upstairs has been set  aside for the hat display. The advantage of this arrangement is at once apparent to the visitor. There seems to  be a greater variety in shapes than  formerly, some with high crowns,  others low and Hat. The large hat  seems to hold pre-eminence. The milli-  nery display was under the supervision  of Miss Darveaux, who has been with  this company for several years. During the last three days the store has  been thronged with shoppers. The  store generally presented a gala day  appearance, with dainty silks, blouses,  neckwear, belts, gloves, etc., laid out  in tempting array.  THE KXFIEI.O CO.  The millinery parlors of the Enfield  company have beeu a centre of attraction for the past few days. Amongst  the large number of magnificent hats  shown it is difficult to single out ajiy  particular oue for description. All  sizes and shapes are to be seen,  and the jaunty tricorne seems to  be quite popular. One particularly  pretty hat in this shape was built entirely oi* foliage and tiny green berries.  A handsome all black French model  was shown, the crown composed of  long stemmed black violets, and finished at the back with a long maline  drape. Another stunning creation was  of shell pink straw and chiffon trimmed  with large pink ribbon bow and black  jet buckles with large white ostrich  plume on left rim and a bandeau of pink  roses. This company also makes a  specialty of children's hats and infants'  outfits. Miss Johns, late of Vancouver,  has charge of the millinery for the Enfield company, and the display made  is indeed creditable to this lady.

When Bishop Perrin denies that the  Chinamen has had an evil influence on  the youthful population of British Columbia, he places his testimony against  the belief of seventy-five per cent of  the people who have taken the time to  investigate the matter. If the Bishop  requires any further light on the subject, he should make imiuiries of the  army of "dope fiends,'' along the coast  line from Victoria to San Diego.

The Bishop thinks  that the Chinese are a strong race, and  is in earnest over their conversion  to   KossUiud World.  In a recent debate in tlie. British  House o" Commons, a letter was produced from the Bishop of Columbia,  Bishop Perrin of Victoria, saving nice  thing3 of the Chinese, using the same  as an argument that as tlio Celestial  was so well liked in British. Columbia, he could not do much,harm in the  Transvaal.. This letter of the Bishop  of British Columbia bas provoked  much invidious comment in the Coast  press, and .hi 5 lordship has beeu driven  to defend himself hi the olmiins of the  Christianity.   He pofnts out that they  are punctual in business, scrupuluously  honest in their business engagements,  and not addicted to drink.     Now all  this is very true and if the question  ���were   merely   this,   there   would   be  nothing further to be said.     But im-  plicity behind the Bishop's argument  is implied that this country is ready to  welcome tlie Chinaman as a settler aud  an equal.     For such.a country as this  must be either white or hybrid.     Now  tlie Chinaman will  not mix with  the  white man.   No while woman cares to  ���marry a Chinaman  whose sexual relations are unnamable,    Any resident  in  ihe Far East where Chinamen are  employed knows  this of them.     For  plainer English the Bishop may refer  to   the Pentateuch.    The Chinaman  too  is  an  inveterate gambler and  is.  generally addicted to opium.   He is inclined to create an imneriuiu inimpcrio  and  be  a law  unto himself.     Special  police are necessary  to cope with him.  Their sanitary life is much at fault and  their general health more or less scrofulous.

A notice of the collections recently.  bequeathed toy the -late 'Mr. Philip  Crowley to the natural history branch  of the British Museum appeared a few i  days ago in the "Times." A very im- '  portant portion of the foeciuest is the  collection of eggs, from which 15,200  specimens have been added to the ser- j  iea previously possessed toy the museum. Among tJhe gems 'in the Crowley  cabinet are an egg of the great auk  and one of the extinct pied Labrador  duck. Both these specimens were acquired by Mr. Crowley from Canon  Tristram. The great auk's' egg is one  of the last "batch" despatched in 13ii  from Iceland to Denmark. The two  specimens in the museum previous to  'this addition were both cracked 'and in  otherwise -poor conditaion. An interesting Item in the collection is the number  of clutches of eggs of various speciea  of blrd3 with a cuckoo's egg among  them.

Some- years ago at a Mardi Gras ball  at the Hopkins Institute in San Francisco, a man. masked, approached a  7Voma.ii, masked, and asked her for a  dance, as is considered right and proper alt Mardi Gras. "But I don't know  you, sir," said the lady in her most dey  tone. "Well, I'm taking as big a risk  as you are," retorted the man.  A tender-hearted youth was once  present at ax. Oxford supper, where the  fathers of these assembled were being  roundly abused for their parsimony in  supplying the demands of their sons.  At last, after having long kept silence,  he lifted up his voice in mild protest.  "After all. gentlemen," he said, "let us  ^re1fie1mi>MM^'1t"^  creatures."  Tho Chatsworth (Ont.) "News" says:  "A good joke is told on a Chatsworth  young man who went to Owen Sound  one day last week and dropped into Dr.  Lang'.'; office to be vaccinated. The  doctor asked him if he had ever been  vaccinated before and he replied: 'I've  been vaccinated twice and baptize;!  three times and neither one of them  took.' The doctor hesitated, but finally  concluded to vaccinate him, and judging from the way he holds his arm the  third vaccination 'took,' even If tha  third baptism didn't."  jac-ob A. Riis tells of an Irish teamster who went to the priest in a fright;  he had seen a ghost on the church wall  as ho passed it In the nlsjht. "And what  was It like?" asked the priest. "It was  like nothing so much as a big ass,"  said Patrick, wild-eyed. "Go homo,  Pat! and be easy," replied the priest,  soothlnrjly; "you've only seen your own  shadow."  Thomas Bailey Aldrlch once received  a pathetic letter in a feminine hand announcing the death of a little daughter  and asking If he would not send in his  own handwriting a verse or two from  "liable Bell" to assuage the grief of  the household.

Senator Cullom of Illinois was asked  by a. correspondent why the Committee  on Foreign Relations had enjoined secrecy on the text of the new treaty  Vvith Great Britain, when the text at  the treaty was printed in all the morning papers. "Just so, just so," said th��  senator; "that's the reason the injunction cf secrecy was placed upon t\i  treaty. We knew that if vye made H  public at once not a j;.-.per in the country would print i.s full text."  During his visit to New York Thackeray was very much  attracted by the  beauty and brilliancy of a Miss B-, and,  in   accordance    with    foreign   custom,  made a morning call, when she did not  expect anyone.    Hearing some  talking  in  the lower hall, she leaned over th*  banisters and asked the servant who It  was.       "It's   Mr.   Thackeray,   ma'am."

Into other countries, where they art'  not needed, and where their principal  Junction is to create complications for  the "United States Government to light  cut.  She will be exploited for a. few days  5>y the yellow journals.  She will be ��� gushed over by long-  'baired men, short-haired 'Women and  other gushers.

There was a little Irishman who kept  e liquor shop, and he was noted for always having a reply ready. One day  r man came in, laid a dollar bill-on the  l)&r-and called for whiskey. The proprietor set out the bottle and a glass,  and the customer flUed the glass right  . �����_> to Tthe top." "Is lt a'towel yoi^'d be  ���wan-tin'?" the proprietor asked, implying 'thereby that the customer had  poured out a baUil rather than a drink.

He Missed His Opportunity.  "Henry," said Uncle Amos" from Up-  creek, who was visiting his city nephew-, "who's that man In the house on  tlie other side of the street? Every  morning he stands in front of a window an' shaves himself. He's done 11  now for three days hand-running."  "I suppose he has done it every  anomlng- for the last ten years, uncle,"  icplled Henry.  "Has he lived there all that time?"  "Zes, and longei* than that, for al! I  know.

Misconceptions,  "A good story comes from Sydney,**  eays the London "Globe," "where letters have been received from two American bi7s>nes3 firms asking whether  communications to Australian merchants should be written in English or  'In the language of the country.'

"When the English barrister, Richard  Eve. desired to "ta.ke silk"���or, In other  rrords, to become a Queen's Counsel-  he sent the usual note to the senior  members on the circuit to see whether  anyone objected, according to custom.

Shortly after Sir Lawrence" Alma-  Tadema, R.A., was knighted, he and  Lady Alma-Tadema gave an At  Home at St. John's Wood. Everybody present was congratulating 'them,  and one lady was very profuse. " Oh,  dear Sir Lawrence," she said, "I am  awfully glad to hear of. the honor you  have received. I suppose now that you  are knighted you will give up painting  and 'live like a gentleman."  In an Ohio town last fall, the African  Methodist-Episcopal Church of that  district held a conference, and for a  week the town was filled with colored  pulpit orators. A few days after the  conference closed its sessions, one of  the leading colored women of the town  drove out to Pea Ridge to purchase  chickens of an old mammy wttio had  supplied the family for years. Aunt  Hanna, coming to the gate, said: "I'm  sorry, Miss Al-lie." I ain't'got a chicken  left.   Dey all done enter de ministry.  A story is going the rounds about  a prominent Nova Scotia lawyer who  is noted for his carelessness In dress,  which fact annoys the members of the  ���Bar exceedingly. Entering the eourt-  roami_ on��- day��� m inns _.. a___cravat,..tiha  judge reproved hirrj, saying the law  required him to wear one. "Oh, yes,  your honor. I know It," he answered;  "���but it does not say-where he shall  wear It," and as he spoke he pulled it  out of his trousers pocket. The matter  then dropped.  General William T. Sherman was  fond of relating the following story:  " When I was with the army in'Georgia, a slave-owner about Christmas  time missed a fine fat turkey. He suspected a good-looking mulatto, and ordered the man brought before him.  1 You have stolen'my turkey and eaten  It,' said the Irate planter. Tse not  gwine to say I didn't, when you says  I did, massa.* 'I ought to have you  flogged. "What have you to say .why  I should not punish you?' ' Well, mas-  aa, you hain't lost anything particular.  You see, you has a little less turkey  and a good deal more nigger.' And,the  master was compelled to acknowledge  the philosophy of the slave, and let  him go unwhlpped."  As a young man Paul Kruger was regarded as an authority on psalm sing:-  lng,_and the_farmers,used to. come to.  hfni to.learn tho keynote for starting  the psalms at the next Sunday's service: Kruger, even in those days, was  no believer in the policy of giving anything away���not even a note of music���  so he had a uniform charge of a double  handful nf dried peaches' for ihis instruction. Even the fact that the work  was in the service of religion did not  deter him from resorting to strategy,  for he made a point of giving each applicant a different note. The result  when the pious Doppers attempted to  raise tlieir voices In 3acred harmony  next Sunday may be Imagined. The  result was that each man concluded he  had lost the key, and had to return for  a further lesson. "I nearly bankrupted  rhcin of their dried peaches," said the  president.  Ford Madox Brown, the artist, once  had to be smuggled Into his own exhibition. The occasion was a private view  In Bond utreet of the Manchester fresco, "John Kay." Tho artist being unwell at the time was accompanied In  his carriage to the gallery by his doctor and old friend, WMCiani Gill. The  time passed pleasantly enough en route  ln conversation, when suddenly Madox  Brown's talk came to an abrupt full  stop; 'he started as though struck by  some very disquieting thought, and  wildly plunged round in his various  pockets, 'blank dismay depicted on: liis  countenance the while. "Good heavens,  Gill!" lie exclaimed, "I have forgotten  my card of admission! What am I to  do*?" "ITour card of admission!" re-  plted his amazed friend, "surely you  can get in without that?" "No, no,"  answered Madox Brown In despair,  "they will never let me In���they don't  know me!" Fortunately, however. Mr.  Gill was provided with the necessary  passport, and he thus played the distinctly original role of getting an artist  admission Into liis own ribovr.  Baker   Street,   Nelson.
