HEARST: "I have seen the  most beautiful lakes in Italy and Switzerland, and all thobc lovely spots, but I have  never seen any thing finer than the Kootenay lake and the Arrow lalces. We had a  delightful time there. This was my fiist  trip through there,  N^^V^^^^AJViAAA/W-ii  J  VOLUME VIII.  General Comment.  When it is considered that 200deaths  occur annually in   British   Columbia  from consumption, the desirability of  at once doing something to cheek the  ravages of the disease will bo readily  apparent.   That it 13 within the power  ofthe people to greatly decrease the  death  rate from this cause, and prevent its spread in a considerable degree,  -has been  conclusively established by  what has been done in recent years in  .. other countries.   In one of the aanita-  .   riums, in Germany, it is reported that  90 per cent, of the cases treated have  been completely cured, and in some of  the others results almost as encouraging have been secured.   One medical  authority has stated that if all cases of  consumption  were   properly  treated  from the initial stage, and a knowledge  ~ of the best "method of preventing it was  general, the  disease  would  be  completely eradicated sixty years  hence  But that is not the question just now  The medical profession  of this Prov  - ince have beeu debating for some time  the best method of dealing -with con  sumption in British Colunibia,-and as a  result a movement is now ou foot to  build a sanitarium at some point in the  interior," probably   in   the   Kamloops  valley, for the treatment of its victims.  ln the past, consumptives have been  sent to the California sanitarium for  treatment;  but   tbe expense   is   so  great    that    only     the     rich    can  afford to make the journey and cost of  residence in the institution.   With the  object of placing treatment within  the  reach of all, it is proposed to raise the  money for the maintenance of tbe British Columbia institution by means of  popular subscription.   Several wealthy  corporations have agreed to subscribe  liberally towards  the erection of the  building, which will cost about $100,-  000. if the public will guarantee the  sura necessary for its maintenance. Dr.  C. J. Fagan, secretary of the Provincial Board of Health, was in Nelson  lust Saturday evening, and  before   a  " few citizens outlined the plan by which  it is proposed to create this fund.   Individuals are asked  to subscribe $1 per  ��� year for ten years, and it -is believed  "thatTlu tUIe way oi_ougli.money OiU) bo  raised to maintain the'institution. As  it is, the working classes, who will bo  most benefited by such an institution,  (the rich can afford to go away for  treatment,) it is boped lhat the response from this source will be liberal  tand spontaneous. When the necessary  -4tum is guaranteed, and the compensating advantages are so great as to  leave no room for doubt as to the result, work on the- building will be  commenced. Already a committee,  consisting of Bishop Cridge, Rev. W.  Leslie Clay and Dr. Fagan has been  formed, and this committee, when the  fund is available, will turn it over to  three trustees, Chief Justice Hunter,  Bobert Gillespie and Campbell  _Sweeney_._ _These_gentlemen area_suf_,  ficient guarantee that the fund will Wf.  judiciously administered.,  .  would have preferred to spend the rest  of his days in cloistered seclusion,  rather than ant as referee in the political  rat pit. But the exigencies of thesitu-  ation demand a man with Mr. Perry*s  peculiar qualifications from this Province at the present time, and at.the  earnest solicitation of Sir "Wilfrid  Ijaurier he has consented to place himself in the bands of his friends. It if  argued that Hon. B. J. Perry can* giv<>  any other candidate in tlie field cards  and spades and then win. - Of course,  it remains to be seen what George  Riley, the sitting member, will think of  this deal. * He may object to being discarded for Mr. Perry, and "it is hinted  that when the time comes other liberals may take a hand in the game.  The district surrounding.NeJson is  not the only piace in the interior which  a can claim superior advantages from a  fruit-grower's standpoint. In fact  there are sections in every part of the  Proviuce peculiarly adapted for fruitgrowing, and not the least entitled to  mention in this regard is the Ketllc  River district. The Grand Forks Sun  points out that numerous evidences are  daily being brought to light to prove  that within half a dozen years the  Kettle River valley will be or,e of the  largest and best fruit-producing sections in the Province. Apples, plums,  prunes, cherries and all kinds of berries  have been grown there in abundance  fpr years, and as time passes new varieties are being added to the list. A  few years ago it was contended that  the climate in that valley was not  suited for raising peaches. Mr. Burrell has just demonstrated the falsity of  this contention by marketing a number of boxes of that fruit, of an exceptionally fine quality, and all grown on  his ranch four miles below Grand  Forks.  TnE cheering news coiiie3 from Victoria, that B. J. Perry, for many years  the confidential friend and adviser of  Joseph Martin, has consented to offer  himself as the candidate in tbe Liberal  interests for the capital city. The  friends of Mr. Perry have lohgbcen  anxious for him to abandon liis other  interests and enter the Dominion political arena.

He was the cricket and baseball  editor of the New York Clipper from  1857 to 18S0, and the baseball editor'of  the Brooklyn Eagle from 1865 to 1S94,  inclusive. He was the first to write  up baseball for the -New York Herald,  in 1862, and was a writer on sports on  the New York World of old for thirteen  years and on the New York Sun for  six years. As a writer of handbooks  on sports he1 began with " Beadle's  Dime Book on Baseball, in. 1860, and  edited DeWitt's Guide from I860 to the  '80's, and he has been editor of Spalding's League Guide for_twenty-three  years.

In 1894 Mr. Chadwick was  subjected to a severe attack of grip, followed by inflammatory rheumatism,  which obliged him to retire from active  journalistic work for over two years,  he then residing at his son-in-law's  home, near Sag Harbor. When the  National League voted him a pension  for life, as the "Father of Baseball," iu  1896, he returned to Brooklyn and re-'  sumed his journalistic work as a veteran writer on sport.

There are many people  in this Province who are inclined to  regard Mr  who ever wielded a pen on the Pro  vinsial press, and Thk Economist confesses that it also holds to this opinion.  Bat Mr. Higgins has shown in those  short stories that* he is not only a  powerful chronicler of such events as  are likely to come within the scope of  an editorial writer, but that as a writer  of narrative he is without a peer in the  West. As a very able reviewer has  said, these stories are characterized by  power and humor. The principal  scenes are laid in Yale and Victoria,  but the author never takes farewell of  his cbaracfers-until he traces them to  their la-t abiding place, and in this respect there will be mucli surprise expressed at the'*'remarkable fund of information possessed by Mr. Higgins.  The average in an could scarcely tell the  present whereabouts of strangers he  met twenty-years ago, yet Mr; Higgins  seems to have kept close track of one  hundred-or so characters and after a  lapse of nearly fifty years, knows exactly what became of them. And it  must be remembered that these characters possessed no more than a passing interest. to the author. Another  reason why this book should be read  by every resident of this Province is  the fact that incidental to the various  plots of the stories'much light is thrown  on the early history of British Columbia. Tho men who played the most  prominent parts in laying the foundation of thisProvince are referred to in  ���simply for what he can make out of  it; and the diatribes of the organ  should have beeu directed, not solely  or chieily against the vile agent, but  against his principals���the Ross Government���whose instructions ho was  simply carrying out to the best of his  have spoken in the highest terms.

Tlie Black Watch bandsmen  have all seen active service. Their uniform at the concerts consists of kilts,  being of the famous dark blue plaid  with red stripped st ockiogs and garters, white gaiters and white tunics  with the tartan, and they wear the  Gleugarries except on parade, when  they wear the big feather busbies. The  pipers of the regiment wear a different  tartan from the ��� bandsmen, being a  brilliant red plaid and their tunics arc  dark-green. They carry very fine bannerets with their pipes. There is a  possibility that thisfamous band may  visit Nelson, in which event they  would be certain to receive a hearty  welcome.

It is understood that Mr.  Taylor and Miss Marrack will remain  here for a few weeks, and during that  time put on a minstrel show, which  will be composed of young people and  grown up men and women. Some  months ago, Miss Marrack got together  a number of young people in Victoria,  and gave an entertainment of this  character, and the coast papers spoke in  the highest terms of praise of the per-  performance. No doubt Miss Marrack  and Mr. Taylor will meet with similar  success iu Nelson. The performance  will probably take place the week after  next.

Drs. Hall & McLennan, and is now in' .  operation at their offices in the K.-W.-  C. Block. Of course this machine has  its limitations, but its value as an assistant to the medical profession caunot  be overstimated.

There would be little  use in attempting a technical description of this machine, but there arc  some things in connoction with it that  will strike the casual observer at a  glance.

When this  negative is taken the skilled practitioner begins bis investigation and at  his leisure is enabled to determine the  location of the trouble, and proceed to  treat it with an accurate knowledge of '  its position and condition of development. .Already Drs. Hall and McLeu-  naifhave made practicar^tests oflhe-1  x-ray. A case of lumbago was {treated  with the most gratifying results.  Space does not permit a more extended  description of the machine at this  time, but it is not too much to say that  sufferers from many forms of disease  will have'reason to be thankful for its  presence here.  In some of the dispatches referring  to thc terminus of tbe Grand Trunk  Pacific reference Is made to Tuck's Inlet. This inlet was named after Mr.  Sheriff Tuck, who, was engaged in the  early '80's in surveying the Govern,  ment land in that district. It was  near this point that Mr. Tuck wasat-  tacked by the Indians, who objected  to a survey being made of the land.  They made away with his transit, and  undoubtedly would have doue him injury had not the British warship Cormorant arrived on the scene and taken  a hand in the trouble. 'Seven of the  most turbulent of the Indians were arrested and afterwards sentenced to  terms in tbe Westminster penitentiary,  after which the Government sujveyor  was permitted to continue his work  unmolested. Some day, when the  sheriff is in the mood* for .writing, he  may contribute a chapter to Canadian  history, based ou the circumstance of  his meeting with tlie Indians, and it  will beau interesting one, too.  The Bar Association will hold its annual dinner. at Procter this evening.  W. A. Macdonald, K. C, is president  of the association, and he has given hia  word to the authorities that the laws  of the land will be strictly observed od  this occasion. A foraging party was  sent up to Procter last night to make  preparations for the diuner. *[mt*��**>*ax��m*i&&a^^  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  r  THE MELSOH ECONOMIST  Published every Saturday afternoon a:  Vuitsos Stui;et.

We wi-iv  therein informed that In votinj; for tin  revocation of the. City Chartir, the  citizens of Dawson expressed cmili-  clence in Commissioner Coi.-li-n u:k1 in  his adminiitration. Tbo sai I im\v.-  item is as follows :  "Commissioner Couzdou hai telegraphed Hon. Clifford Sifton that i!k  plebiscite to determine whelhi'r t!i<  City Charter should be levoUol, ami  the commissioner take* cliarec ..I* :iu  "���affairs of Dawson, was can icd by over  three to one. Tlie public c->HMder I*:*.-'  as a strong endorsation of the luimiiiis-  tration."  This picture has, ljowevir, an obverse side. Such an item of news vvji.-  in itself suspicious of wrongdoing in  thc holding or carrying out of li.i-  election. That a municipality would  vote to revoke its charter, :ml to ouhi-  mit the management of iu ioiernal af  "fairs to outsiders, is so ui.tixiia! as lo  naturally excite inquiry into il.ec.ir-  . cumstances under which s-uu!i an i-veu.t  could have occurred. Tlie.-e have ?3:ic*i-  been furnished. In recent Hriiish  Columbia newspapers a lengthy telegram has appeared, sent out lo the  Canadian press, we are therein iii-  ' formed, at the cost of a sum of money  subscribed for that purpose by tin.*  business men, government employees,  etc., ofthe Northern Cily, and ,siKi-ed  by " W. F. Thompson, editor ofthe  Yukon Sun (Liberal party oraan).''  This telegram reveals a slaMiing r>UU-  of things out tiiere. llpl>e^i-n no f.d  lows :  "After a shameless exhibition ofihe  most barefaced jobbery ever i��.mi ���'��������*.��� <!  in Canada j" after (lie dictum of the Sn  perior Court Judge that an el-vlion  under thc circumstanced then -wi-iin,-?  would not be legal ; after <i united protest by press and people, tlie I .e.d ;ul-  miniatration of the Yuk-m Teriitiii>  ���was to-day"^-13tli Septem'wr���"^to!.:ii  from the people by V.ie c >in-  missioncr of the territory.

A vile condition of affairs ii set forth  iu this  telegram,   of which  we  li ire  given only a part, as existing- i i  the  Yukon Territory, showing the highhanded and illegal methods w hicli are  being pursued by Commissioner Cong-  don iu   the above and  other  matler.-  thcrc.   The afllii roof the Y.ikon have  been, almost continually from   the beginning, shamulcisly exploited by the  agents sent-to it by  the Ottawa Government to manage   Ihem ; and Coin-  missioner Congdon seems m��t lo be an  exception in this respect.

That systematic development -when dono  intelligently is sure tobesuccesslul in mining  has often been proved as has been the case of  the North Star group, on Rapid creek, in thc  Trout   Lake division, s-iys  the  Trout Lake  Topic.

On'thc surface nlne'.flssure veins havebcen  uncovered running in widtli from six inches  to three feet.    Chun leu or ore from these veins  brought to Trout  Lake arc literally honeycombed with tlie precious inct.il and are without doubt the ricbest ever brought into camp.  lhe C. P.

The tract comprises  24 acres and Is situated ln Fairview. No information is forthcoming as to when work  on the mill will commence, but thc fact that  preparations to clear the plncc have been  lUMie, leads to the belief that operations will  not be delayed very long.  gome of the disciples or fe'p'kc Heuncssey  liarebeen practising their.profession In Nel-  fioiij Friday morning nn attempt was made  loblow open tbe t-afe of A.
