NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY, MAY 13, 19C5.  NUB1BEB  RADIUM   AS  A   CURE   FOR  CANCER.  A New York dispatch' slates that  through tlie use of Uie much-vaunted,  and later almost disdained discovery���  radium,���an almost complete cure of  a case of cancer has been effected at tho  Flower Hospital.  Mrs.  Surah  Olvcr of New  Canaan,  Conn.,  was slowly dying of cancer,  that bad attacked  tlio instep of her  left foot.     At lier time of life, 82 years  old, any use of the knife would  have  proved fatal.    Hugo Lieber undertook  . to treat her with radium.  _j   Two weeks ago she received hot first  /treatment with the solution, or coating.    -  �� Six days later Uiegreat tumor that  ^menaced her life, literally.dropped off,  Showing tlie healthy flesh underneath.  V 'Hugo Lieber, although almost  ^'equally disinclined  to talk, consented  ,i **  ;to explain his   important   discovery.  .-The World reporter found  him in his  labratory in West Broadway. .'  **-' "You see  this,"  said   Mr.-, Lieber.  _.-��� . i . i  .  .holding up a little glass tube, two in-  'ches long and and a half inch iu diameter, lt was about one-third full of a  yellowish powder.  "That powder is radium. It is the  largest individual importation" made to  this.country and cost $12,000.  "Now look at this," he continued,  displaying a thin rod of celluloid,  tipped an inch deep with what looked  like.crireison paint. "That red substance is ray^new discovery. It is a  solution of radium, which in direct contact with diseased, tissue.gi"es -till the  activity of pure.radium."  Turning to -an electroscope, Mr.  Lieber repeated for the reporter's benefit the experiment with which he had  convinced scientists, on .the initial an-  nouncement of his discovery. This  experiment measures the activity of  radium ; and the record made by the  little red-tipped rod of celluoid was far  greater than that made'by the tube of  ���pure radium worth ��12,000. The cost  of the red-tipped rod is only $'25, and  ^the; radium solreut upon it is iude-  . structible.  Pure radium i.s the scarcest tiling in  all the world, and I he" most expensive,  None but the very rich '.could:hope, to  benefit by its .wonderful power. Lieber's discovery promisi 8 to be put  ���within the reach of rich and poor  alike.   Shorn~of tefchnicalities_the"_istoi y~6f  ��� __ _.  Lieber's discovery may be briefly told.  Initial investigations of pure radium  led to the theory that it radiated three  kiuds of rays : Alpha rays, of low penetrating power; Beta rays of greater  penetrating power ; and Gamma rays,  of enormous penetrating power.  Luter investigations have established  the fact that radium discharges only  Alpha rays, and certain emanations  which are the products of radium decomposition. The. emanations were  originally classed as the Beta and  Gamma rays. The Alpha rays form  95 per cent jf all other radiations  thrown off by radium, and they lack  the power to penetrate glass or thinnest  aluminum. They were all lost so far  as therapeutic uses were concerned  Lieber's radium "crating" gives the  Alpha rays an unobstructed chance to  operate. It is not- eucased iu glass of  alumium, but comes in direct contract  with the diseased tissue. The solution  is colorless, but it is artificially colored so that its presence on a rod or  disk of celluloid may be dearly defined.  At present its curative powers aie  under experimental analysis. But  these powers are amazing. A tube of  this radium-coated celluloid that looks  exactly like a slender stick of candy  will remove warts and moles as'if by  magic. They simply crumble away,  leaving the underneath sound and unblemished.  The next experiment will be upon  cancer ofthe throat and the therapeutists at the Flower;'Hospital feel confident of the. result. - It is also believed  that it will be possible to treat cancer  of the stomach with the new discovery  by pas&ing the coated tube down the  throat to direct, contact.  Experimentswill also 'begin at once  to test the radium solution in the treaty  ment of consumption. In this experiment an attempt will be made to blow  the emanations of radium into the  lungs by means of an apparatus which  Inventor Lieber has devised.  By invitation Mr. Litber explained  this apparatus a few weeks ago in an  address to to the society for Experimental Biology arid Medicine in New York.  Tho instrument by which an attempt  will be made to carry radium into the  lungs is a complicated arrangement of  tubes, bulbs and stoppers too complex  for~any-&ut~rechriical description"."  A NEWSPAPER AMID ANTARCTIC ICE.  Specimei' pages of the newspaper  that was printed on a typewi iter every  week for two winlei'3 whilo the Discovery was in the Antarctic have been  sent to this country. It was not the  first newspaper of its kind, but in qual  ity it was the best of Polar publications.:  This is largely due to the fact that il  was beautifully illustrated with watoi  colors and black and white sketches.  There were artists in that crowd, and  Borue of the best work was done for tho  newspaper.  Most of the color work' illustrated  natural history. The birds and beasts  of that region gave numerous sittings  and the pictures are rarely surpassed  byjanyn process.,  Many black and white illustrations  hit off the daily life in camp, showed  the humorous aspect of things and  caricatured everybody from Capt.  'ijcott down. These pictures are sprinkled in among news items, stories, fun  and solid scientific articles. It i_ a remarkable product in its way, and they  are talking at the Royal Geographical  Society in London of making facsimile reproductions in eight volumes  to be sold at a pretty penny.    .  Theu there were other methods also  of driving dull care away duriug the  tedious winter months. Once in a  >phile,things were livened up by a negro minstrel performance.  It would not to do to rehearse ��r  these performances on the ship, for  everj'body would know just-what was  going on. So the burnt cork artists always went for rehearsal to a hut that  had been erected on the ice.' The tem-  perature in the hut was decidedly Arctic, and ' Lieut. Royds says it was no  groat pleasure playing tlie piano for  the comic song.  One day when tho troupe went t"  the hut for rehearsal they found two  members of the scientific staff taking  pendulum observations. The gentlemen gave way to the minstrels and  started for the ship, and a mention of  what happened may give a faint idea  of au Anarctic blizzard on a winter  night.  .'; '��� i  Tlie distance between the hut and  the ship was 600 feet. The rehearsal  was over in an hour, aud the minstrels  started for the ship. They had gone  half the distance when they heard a  faint cry through the howling blast.  Everybody knew that some one was  .lost.'   o"; "i--* 7"77"'.77'"    '��� "''���  The party opened out and soon  found the two men who_ had left the  hut. They had been lost between the  hut aud the ship and for an hour had  been tramping around in a little circle  circle shouting at the top of their  voices, but they couldn't outcry the1  blizzard.  THINGS TALKE D  \  The audience  that assembled in the  Opera House on last Monday eve n ing  to hear Cowen's cantata, "Thc Rose  i i  Maiden," given by the Nelson Choral  Society; were scarcely prepared for tlie  excellence of the musical treat presented to them. Indeed, the fact that  quite* number of scats, in the house-  were empty indicated that the Nelson  public generally harbored some doubts  as to whether the- entertainment  would he woitli \x\\ ing for. If.Hich  doubts existed in the minds of those  present they were speedily and satisfactorily settled before the o_ eni ig  chorus of the programme came to an  eiid, and from then on the enthusiasm  of the audience grew with each number,: culminating in a perfect tempest Of applause at the "magnificent  rendering of the bridal chorus.' A  rigid rule had been declared by the  management against encores,*; but in  this and another instance it was found  impossible to adhere to it. At the  conclusion of Miss Crowley's scena,  "Ask of Yon Ruined Castle," the audience demanded a repetition that  would brook no denial. This talented  young lady was heard for the first  time in Nelson on this occasion, and  her clear, sweet voice, rendering the  music with;a depth of feeling and  power of interpretation surprising in  such a young singer, captivated the  listeners. If the Nelson Choral Society had accomplished nothing more  than presenting an opportunity to a  Nelson audience of hearing Miss  Crowley, its existence would have  been fully justified. It is sincerely,  hoped that such natural gifts as Miss  Crowley possesses-.may.-be..given ..the  utmost possible cultivation. Thc other  -soloists of the evening are well known  to the Nelson public and deserve the  highest praise. Mrs. Briggs wns at  her best afid sang tbe difficult soprano  part.exquisitely. The audience wished  to have her repeat the aria, "Bloom on,  My Hoses," but she contented herself  with acknowledging the plaudits  merely. However, when Mi��s Crowley  was called upon'to repeat ber number,  Mrs. Briggs very charmingly repeated  the. recitative, "God Greet Thee,"  leading up to it. and shared in the  demonstration of delight with whieh  the audience showed their appreciation. Mr._C._Broadwood_saiig_ in_a  masterly    manner,   liis   robust   and  highly   cultivated   baritone  blending  perfectly with the other voices in the  concerted pieces and coming out with  rich power in his solo, "Where Gloomy  Pine Trees Rustle."    Mr. G. Brown  surprised    and   greatly   pleased    his  friends in his singing of the tenor solo  part.   The   quality   of  Mr.   Brown's  voice is pure lyric tenor, a raro quality  in this country for some reason.   Itis  a voice that would  well' repay further  careful   cultivation.   Tlie chorus and  orchestra  showed   the  effect of conscientious- practice and training, and  their- part in the evening'^ entertainment gave universal satisfaction. Even  the few who went to criticize and not  to enjoy found it difficult to agree as to  where, any    imperfections   existed.  The    attack    and    finish    on    the  part   of the  chorus   were  excellent.  T he very soft passages might possibly  have been made even softer with advantage.     -The  sopranos  somewhat  overweighed   the other parts in the  pianissimo.     The orchestra was well  balanced and very effective.    Perhaps  its best efforts were the introduction  and the prelude to the bridal chorus,  both of which were gems of orchestral  work.     Mr. Bodmer, who presided at  the piano, is entitled to the very highest praise'in this connection.     As one  of the audionce remarked on coming  away from the Opera House, beseemed  to be  able to make the  piano  siug.  The work for the piano as also for the  violins is decidedly difficult, demanding technique of high  order.     It is  OF DURING THE WEEK IN NELSON.  soui-cely too much to say that this par-1 the  street."       On   the  afternoon   of  ticular   feature was above   criticism. J Thursday last, four other members of  Tho society is to be congratulated on  the success of its lirst performance and  the satisfaction tliat was apparent on  the face of the conductor, Mr. It. M.  Macdonald, at the genuine enthusiasm  with which the house gave vent .to its  foolijigs was undoubtedly shared by  every member taking part. That the  members .themselves placed a large  share, of the credit upon their conductor was evidenced by the hearty  cheers which they gave him at lho end  of tho performance. The conclusion  of the whole* matter, however,  ii that when, every one engaged  does his or' her best, as has  been the case in thc preparation of this  w<rk, success such as that of last Monday evening is assured. Nelson music  lovers will look.forward with pleasurable anticipation to the society's next  production.  No resident of the city of-Nelson  during the past two or three months  needs to be informed liosv frequently  and persistently the mayor of the city  and,bis clacquers have been putting  forth.his claims to/public -recognition  for the valuable services rendered by  him ih connection with the disposal  on .favorabld terms of the city's power  debentures. In the columns of his paper, this claim has been expressed ad  the Fire Department received notice of  summary dismissal���1). Herb, R.  Sharp, R.Elliot and J. E. Procter���  this,'notwithstanding the fact that the  Council, at its meeting on Thursday,  refused, to sanction a reorganization of  the City Fire Department. R. Sharp  has'since been that been reinstated.  There is evidently a first class row  brewing in the Council over the  Mayor's whimsical actions. The Mayor  -reads the offending aldermen out of  the so called Progressive Party in his  newspaper, and proceeds to trounce  them in his well known style, and  calls upon them for their resignation  as members of the City Council. A  statement from the said .aldermen  is.expectod shortly, which will show  their * reasons for the course'which  they have called upon to take in civic  matters. It is not, we are sure, without a strong sense of duty that- they  have taken their stand; but having  taken it, they will retain it notwithstanding all the Mayor's specious misrepresentations.  \*W''&  COSTLY SOWENIRS OP GREAT PEOPLE;  The interest aroused by the recent  production ��� of the cantata, "The Rose  Maiden."-brings to mind that this is  the month for holding the regular  annual meeting or the Nelson Operatic  Society.     It is believed  that with tbe  nauseam.    All the credit therefor has, '.success atteding past productions under  it is asserted, beeri: due to' him alone:  Prior civic   administrators has   been  dilatory in this matter; he has been  f i  prudently energetic, with   the above  result, and this-notwithstanding  tho  malign influences whieh have been at  work"against him.     This has been his  claim on behalf of himself,  applauded  iu the making of it by a coterie of his  followers,   aud   quietly   conceded   by  the public generally.    It now appears,  however, from an item relating thereto  which   has recently  appeared  in   the!  this society, the members will be in-  duce_ to .uudertake another opera for  the autumn, probably during the Nelson Fair. Mr.-Parry is convinced that  there will be no difficulty in getting  together quite as good a company of  singers as he' has yet had under his direction.  If Nelson ever hopes to make progress as a  manufacturing'centre, her  | citizens must encourage local manufacturers..

He finds the local product  growing in demand, and as a resultthe  company is kept busy filling its orders.  A live issue has .arisen in the City  Council between tlie Mayor on the one  side a nd Aldermen. J. E. Annable and  D. M. Macdonald on the -other. At  this we are not at all surprised. Wei  indeed anticipated it. No one catii  work amicably with the Mayor unless  he is disposed on all occasions to subordinate bis individuality to that of  his Worship ; lo accept unhesitatingly  aud unqiiestion"ingly the-, dictum of the  Ma^oras governing all his actions as  alderman. These two members of the  Council did not feel that thoy could  continue to do this, in view of some of  the erratic actions of His Worship.  Hence the conflict. One of these has  been the summary dismissal of Samuel  Coulter as driver of the Fire Department, who bears the reputation of  having been a competent man for the  position, and the substitution in place  of him of J. T. O'Connor, who it is  charged, is not specially fitted for that! verdict be it guilty or not guilty they  position. The two aldermen above simply acquit themselves acco rding to  named thought that thc interest of .the dictates of their own consciences,  the City should not be imperilled hy  the Mayor's whims, and they have in  consequence taken a decided stand in | The Kardens in and aroud Nelson are  this matter;.

Among the many visitors to Nelson  this week is Charles Haywiird, of Victoria, who will give evidence in the  Atkinson case next week. Mr. Hay-  ward occupied the Mayor's chair in  Victoria three terms, and during his  official career the Capital city made  substantial progress in many respects.  He is noted for his progressive ideas,  and the strong resemblance he bears to  the late Lord Salisbury.  A demonstration such as was made  at the court house last evening when  John Roberts was declared "not guilty"  should never again be repeated in  British Columbia. Canadian jurors  have a duty to perform, and that tbey  do that duty iu a conscientious manner  is not a subject for an open demonstration of applause.     In rendering their  Perhaps you do not set any particular value on your olthclothes, your  old books, your old love letters���but if  in after years you become famous, such  insignificant articles will be worth a  gold mine to your descendants.  Take Thackeray's case. When he  was at school, like almost every boy he  ornamented his Latin dictionary, his  Euclid and his Horatius with little ink  sketches. You could pick up such  books on any stall for 3d, but because  they belonged to the great author they  realized, not long ago, not less than  $203.  A one page letter, written by Charles  Dickens, changed hands for $160. The  plain, unpretentious house in Portsmouth in which he was born, which  you would hate to acquire for $1,000,  was also sold recently for $5,625 to the  Portsmouth corporation;who intend to  convert it in to'a Dickens museum.  Fora love letter written, by Robert  Burns, the Scottish poet, $50 vtn�� paid  not long ago. Yet a brass collar which  was worn by Boatswain, the dog to  whose memory Lord Byron erected a  monument at Newton Abbey, fetched  21 guineas, while the collar of Thunderer, another of Lord Byron's dogs,  realized 4 guineas only.  A mulberry tree planted by Shakespeare has already brought in a small  fortune. A casket made from the wood  was sold a few montbs'ago for $700; a  figure of the bard similarly carved  fetched $65.  Fancy prices are frequently paid forj  relics of theatrical stars.     The Louis  r��� ��� O  XVI. clock which formerly belonged  to Mrs. Siddone, a short time ago  fetched 38 guineas.  Seven relics of Charles Kean, nevertheless, were sold for $20, one among  them, a Highland dirk; used by him  when playing, the part of Macbeth, going for $3.  For. the pistol with which Dick Tur-  -pin'bnce instilled fear into the hearts of  passengers on the Great Nortli road,  however, 5 guineas were~"crnsidered  sufficient. -���  Relics of Lord Nelson arealso worth "  a small   fortune.     An enameled gold  telescope, once in the possession of tha    ���  great admiral, was sold recently f����r-  $200;   the  wine  flagon   of Admiral  Brueys,  takeu  by Nelson, fetched 50  guineas; but a letter written  by the  gallant hero to Lady Hamilton just * ;.  before he died realized  the huge sum  of $5,150. x  At the same sale another letter written tbe day after the battle of Waterloo  by the Duke of Wellington, was sold  for $505. Part of the mane of the  charger ridden at the same battle by  the great duke also fetched an extra- .''  ordinary price. .   ,      '  A few'cents under $50 was paid not  long back for a button which had once -' ''  adorned the coat of Oliver Cromwell. ��� .-  It was accompanied by a certificate  stating that it "was on hia coat wheVt  he "sett to judge King Charles." An  order, signed fay the Protector also  fetched $50; , .        -       ' -  At a collection sold some time ago a  letter from tho King when Prince of  Wales realized $200. A Sarah Siddona .  letter went for $60, and one fron_Ed-  mund Kean for $45. The same price  was paid, for David Garrlck's autograph. , _.  But it is royal relics, which fetch the  highest prices.  A little while back a pen, whose initial cost probably did not amount to  sixpence, -was sold for $160. It waa  used by the Emperor .Francis I., the '  Czar Alexander I, and King Frederick  William III. of Prussia, in appending  their signatures to the treaty of the  the Holy Alliance in 1816.  A lock of Napoleon's hair, not long  ago, fetched $5, his court coat 19J  guineas.  ERUTT  GROWING IN THIS  PROVI NCE  Reports from all over the district are  to the effect that the prospects are  favorable for a prolific yield of fruit.  During the-week there-hasbeen con~  siderable demand for land for small  fruit ranches, and the real estate dealers report the demand increasing every  day..  Thomas McNaught, of Halcyon Hot  Springs, was in tho city yesterday.  Mr. McNaught has become a convert  to the greatainducements offered by  British Columbia from an agricultural  and horticultural standpoint. On his  recent trip down the Arrow Lakes, he  counted between Halcyon and Robson  120 small fruit ranches all in a flourishing condition. He also observed that  there are thousands of acres of land  uncultivated, and argues from this  that the time is not far distant-,when  the banks all along tbe lake will be  doited, with small fruit ranches. The  land is well adapted for fruit growing,  and lhe transportation facilities are all  that could be desired.

A Colonist reporter  called upon Messrs. F. R. Stewart &  Co., the produce dealers, and asked  them what information they bad on  the subject. Mr. Stewart said he had  heard the most disquieting rumors, especially respecting the strawberry  crop; but from conversations with R.'���*  M. Palmer aud others in a position to  speak with authority, he did not think  the situation was as bad as was made  to appear. Mr. Palmer said the Gordon Head district had luckily escaped  any damage to the strawberry crops,  though the same could not be said in  respect to adjacent districts, where the "  loss would no doubt be considerable ;  but it was yet too early by a week or  so to speak with full knowledge on the  subject. Regarding the apple and  other fruit crops, it appears that tbe  frosts did not, as far as yet can be ascertained, do any very serious damage,  as the trees were not sufficiently advanced to suffer a serious set back.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  A short time ago, in an editorial  which appeared in Thk Economist, we expressed ourselves as  not in sympathy with thc employment of the Chinese at Salmo. Cui  views in regard to the matter still  remain the same as those which  were expressed in that editorial.  They were uot manufactured for  the special occasion, but they arc  those which have been held and expressed by us for many years.  Still we are not in sympathy  with the views and resolutions  which we observe not uufrequently  regarding ihis question. These  views and resolutions express disapprobation \silh the maintenance  ofthe police there for the preservation of law and order iu that cora-  ' in Unity, and frequently manifest  more of a political than of an  economic bias. The question which  bas occurred to us in this connec-  ction, aud which we would like to  see calmly discussed, is this :  Granting that there is' need of the  police there for tbe preservation of  order, has the proper department of  the British Columbia Government  that has supervision over this matter, or has the chiel of the "provincial police in this district any option but to so employ Jheru? If  either this department of the Gov  erntnent or the said official has rea-  . Son to apprehend a breach of the  peace, is it not" the duty of- each of  them to as far as possible guard  against its occurrence? All governments and such officials, at least in  civilized countries, seem to act upon  the principle tbat such a duty is  cast upon them in consequence of  such  apprehension.    It is needless  -to-cite-instancesof-this^-lhe-y-are-of.  frequent occurrence. Is it, cr should  it be different in British Columbia?  If a breach ofthe peace were to occur in consequence of their non-  employment there, would there not  be a loud outcry raised against the  same Government for neglect of its  obvious duty by those same persons who now rant and roar against  it in consequence of tbeir employment there ? There certainly  would be a very strong manifestation, and justly so. These are  questions whieh in our opinion  may well engage the thoughtful attention of those who are sedulously  endeavoring to manufacture political feeling against the Government  in consequence of its maintaining a  couple  of policeman  at Salmo for  the preservation of order there.  diflVrt initios .ire heiug worked profitably ;���!-���;! with satisfaction to their  owners.  To those who are fond of solving  perplexing puzzles, a study of the  Tramway timetable might prove  interesting and entertaining these  dismal rniuy evenings.  PRESS COMMENT.  There is now a bill lefore the  British Parliament to shut out undesirable emigrants.

Legislature.���Blair-  mcre Times.  The meeting held at Nelson to  protest against tiie recent importation of Chinese atid Japanese labor  for- the Salmo Shinyle mill, bjre  the earmarks of a political scheme.

TH0NE19  60 YEARS'  EXPERIENCE  The employment by the Kooteuay  Shingle Company of a number of  Chinese and Japs in its mill at  Salmo has been seized npon by certain political discon'enis at Nelson,  namely, Mr. Houston, Mr. S. S.  Taylor and Mr. F. J. Deane, as a  pretext ior attacking the Provincial  Government, and this pretext has  been used for like purpose D3r some  ot our Liberal newspapers. Of  course, the matter is no concern of  the Government. The mill company can employ whom it pleases���  unless thereby it breaks contracts  with other persons, who would have  the usual legal remedy. Eut the  incident serves to show to what  straits the opposition party is driven  in seeking for a cause tor criticism  of the Provincial Government; The  Government has done all iu its  power to keep Oriental labor out of  British Columbia; the "I/beral  party of Canada, pn the contrary,  has done all in its power to negative  those efforts.
