NUMBER 23  .'-  -.-iii  _News of the  mes  The recent rich finds in the Poplar  Creek district Lave caused a, great deal  - of. excitement. It is said, on what  seems to be tlie best authority, that  tbe recent discoveries have, never been  equalled iu any district in British  Columbia. Incidentally, tbe claims  ihade by so many miners that Poplar  Creek would surprise the world, are  being established very conclusively.  It is not Poplar Creek alone that  gives encouragement as to the future  of the mining industry in the Province.  From every mining district tbe most  gratifying reports are being received,  and it now looks as if next summer  would be the moat prosperous in the  history of British Columbia.  bond on the 'Eli-horn, due from McDonald and Su tlierla.ud on the 9th instant, was in-tlie "banl* to meet it some  weeks previous, behig^the net returns  from ore shipments fromthis high grade  property, which adjoins the Providence.  Next Wednesday 3s the date set for  +hepayment of tlie d ividend' of $133,*-  C40 by tlie Granby Consolidated, being  at the rate of one per cent, quarterly  on the issued capital of the company.  This is said to be tbe largest dividend  ever paid at oue time by any mining  company in British Columbia.  EVENTS  ��� In compliance with the general wish of the public, J For those 'monumental curses,  _._. -��_'_r z____-..__.__���������-1������"!-- ; *^_��.i-.i �� Full of cataclysmal woe.  Everything points to an erajof prosperity for the Lardeau district during  the coming year, says the Trout Lake  Topic. In the Fish Creek country tbe  Eva mill is turning out gold bricks at  a rate that gladdens tbe heart-* ot the  "owners, tbe Oyster-Criterion mill is  now in operation and will be a monthly  producer of the yellow goods. Other  properties are bci ug work ed successful ly  in that part of tiie district and conditions as a whole are very] encouraging. At Ferguson Lhe big reduction  plant of the (.1 vent Western people is  being pushed rapidly to completion.  At present there are over J30 men employed in construction, while al Silver  Cup mine there arc some GO men wcrk-  Grand Forks Ne^rs-Gazctte.  Over four hundred men are employed  atthe Granby mines, being the largest  number in the history of Phoenix.  Hard rock has been reached in the  No. 4 tunnel of the Granby mines, the  bore being under cover about 60 or 70  feet.  . The Waterloo mill has been duplicated. Five additional stamps are now  being hauled from Midway to tbe  mine. The whole 10 stamps will be  running within the next five six days,  is the announcement made by the  Waterloo management.  It is expected tliitL beginning with  the new year ihe Prov idence mine will  declare monthly dividends. This property is one of tlie highest gTade in the  Boundary, and lias already declared  dividends of over $-3090, and the last  ing.     With the completion of the mill- ^q.OOO o���  lll0 bon,i 1Vas paid out of  and tramways both lho Nettie L and  Silver Cup will exce'cil their output 'of  the past lo a large extent.'' The,Triune'  -will also bo a big factor in the tonnage  of 1904. The Alpha Group on 'the  ' Great Northern hill, tributary to'thc  town of Ferguson, now that it has  changed ownersliip .will undoubtedly  bo worked largely next year, tbo new-  owners having ample capital to put in  reduction works which will enable this  property to be a very largo producer.  Poplar creek, where the rich discoveries  ���were made last sunnner.will be a record-  breaker In 1904, Numerous properties  are being worked with results that aro  extremely gratifying to the owners.  Taking the district as a whole there  is no question of its being equal to if  not surpassing any district of a like  size in the world.  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  - -.*..

No such trouble as this 1  Had been dreamt of, I wis,  In Nelson's domain  The last decade or twain ;  Men, women and children did nothing but fret,  And in short the whole city was quite upset.  Good Baron John in his armchair sat,  And called for his henchmen true ;  Ho ! varlets, go summon my councillors wise,  Bid them to.haste., as I wish to advise  What' under the sun we're to do:  - Into the hall came his councillors all,  Councillors bulky and councillors small,  Councillors spherical, councillors tall,  Councillors broad as the side of a wall,  Ruunlng and panting to answer the call.  On the Baron's gloomy brow  Dark and darker grew the frown ���*�����,  -As he'pondered how uneasy  Xies the'head that wears a crown ;  But he knew it wouldn't do  To let his people think him down,   ���  So he roused himself and addressed  The burghers of his town.  None may repeat those awesome words  That turned the listeners'hearts to curds ;  ���The Baron's foes were cursed full well,  Their .doom foretold, their funeral bell  Was rung with loud prophetic knell,  Their fate hereafter, sad to tell,  Was pictured in the hottest hell,  While sweat from all the listeners fell,  And limbs did shake with horrid dread,  Aiid hair~foseu"p_bn"every"bead~  And everybody felt unwellA  -Then'in a vivid peroration,    .  -The baron called on.all the nation  To-hurl his foes from theirhigh station,  And place him. there instead.  The silence that followed the Baron's loud din  Was such that I venture to say that a pin  Might havecaused a comtnotio'n, if driven well in  To.the calf oi the leg, or eke into the shin.  Then General Starkey was heard to remark he  Felt good for a fight, so would go and don khaki;  And good Friar Marks, that most learned of clerks,  Inspired by bearing the latter's remarks,  Forgetting his calling, went roaring and bawling,  Abusing the foe in a manner appalling.  And all in a trice, that council so nice,  Since they, thus to put it, had brokeu the ice,  Dissolved in a hubbub, each shouting advice.  But the Baron so good, be it well understood,  Is not in a very angelical mood,  If one may so judge by his looks,   ���  So'order's restored  With one loud uttered word,  That sounds not at all like "Gadzooks!"  In fact, ..  It\s not in'the Sunday School books.  For one couldn't help feeling,  As curses went pealing,  And anathemas rising from platform to ceiling,  That McBride aud his party  Would not feel quite hearty,  But under each jerkin  Their "doom would be lurkin',  To end them so soon as the curse got its work in.  You will then be surprised  Upon being advised  On the best cf authority,  That Richard's majority,  Which was but one before,  Grew to no less than four;  That the Governor's sleep  Was refreshing and deep ;  That the smiles on the various ministers' faces.  Grew broader some inches; nor were there e'en traces  Of care on the brow,[that most tell-tale of places, .  While W. A. looked like winniug the races,  And laughed till he burst off his buttons and braces,;  And Elliot gave over his briefs and his cases,  And smiled like a man who is holding four aces.  In fact we may sum up the whole situation  By saying that as to both person and station,  They're all of them better in every relation  Than even before Baron John's incantation,  And this I aver without least hesitation,  Morai,,  The morals, dear friends, you may look for are these "-  Don*t insist upon thinkingyourself the whole cheese.  When you summon your councillors, hear what they  say,  Don't-keep on a-talking yourself all the day.  All cursing'and banning be sure to eschew,  And don't bite off a chunk that you never can chew. -  L  tt   E  ocal and  jl rovineial  The Rossland World again appears f   The Instruments for the Trout Lake  as a daily paper. brass band have arrived from tho east.  <4  Tbe Irishmen of Nelson are moving in the matter  of organizing a national society. -This idea has been  under consideration for some time, and has at last  taken something like defi* nite' shape.

James Hawkins, who has done as much for the aa-  vancementof real sport as any one here, has left for  ,h|s old hqme_atOttawa, where heAviH reside _in__fu"_  ture. Previous to his departure for the east, the  friends of Mr. Hawkius presented him with a valuable gold watch as a token of their esteem aud goodwill.  Several   snowslides have been reported from the Slocan this week.  The dismissal of J. A. Russell, from  the office of police magistrate of Van*  couver, is causing a great deal of talk  at the Terminal city.  ��� Wm. Bate of Nanaimo, brother of  ���Mrs. Goepel, Mrs. Davys and Mrs.  Heath cote, of Nelson, died of heart disease at his home last Sunday morning,  The clerks at the Canada Drag' &  Book Co's stores have been busy this  week.    This house is the headquarters  for speial novelties for  holiday presents.  John E. Jenkins, a Cariboo pioneer  of 1858, well known in Vancouver, and  proprietor of the Old Flag Hotel, Nanaimo, died this week aged 64. He  had no family.  The at "home given by the High  School pupils to their friends Thursday  evening was a very enjoyable event.  The rooms were tastily decorated for  the occasion. One room was devoted  to dancing and the other to games.  The marriage of Mr. F. D. Davidsre  and Miss Anida Powell took place in  Toronto on-December 2nd. Both bride  and groom are well known iu British  Columbia, the latter having been  closely connected with ihe business life  of Victoria for a number or years.  The funeral of the late T. M. Ward,  Thuasday afternoon, was one of the  largest ever seen in Nelson. The pallbearers were J. Fred. Hume, John  Elliot, John Houston, Dr. D. LaBau,  W. F. Teetzel and J. Gilker. The services were conducted by Bev. F. H.  Graham. The floral tokens were  numerous.

Hon. D. W. Higgins also contributed a short story, equal in interest to his former  productions.

The  historian tells us that all peoples, of all  shades and color9, gamble, but the biggest plunger of the lot is the Anglo-Saxon, '"because of his,, superb vital lifo-.  ���force." We incline chiefly to fhreo  forms:'horses, cards and stock margins.  The gambler at the Woodbine ^has* a  good time for a couple of weeks, has his  tips and downs, and, of course, comes out  short at the-end of the races. He doesn't mind, however, if he has had lots of  fun, and he goes to work ���with.the laudable aim of savings something for the  next races. Card gambling!? less..healthy.  The player works at night in a room  which   becomes*   close   and   stufl'y,   and  rgeneralljr^smoJces^and^dri.nks^too^inuelu  Neither of these'forms of gambling" is  considered correct; neither meets with  the approval of the clergy.  Stock gambling is really the only form  that is eminently respectable. Here the  doctor can work shoulder to shoulder  with the -.preacher, the elder, the church  warden, the class-leader, the widow and  orphan, ox the fellow who bas the widow's and orphan's money. We understand that the preacher is more scientific in his methods than the innocent doctor, and becomes therefore the shrewder  speculator; he knows more about selling  snort. We learn' from experts that in  stock margin gambling it is more satisfactory to sell what you haven't got*  than to buy what you don't get.  Of course, iu the long run, the large  dealers capture the pot?. They then become great philanthropists, pillars of  churches, and by common consent occupy the highest seats ia the synagogue.  Occasionally, however,. even the top-  notchers come to grief, but strong inlln-  ences come to their rescue. The press  lbudly proclaims that they are men of  undoubted integrity. The banks help  them in various ways and assume an  "attitude" that has a "reassuring cll'ect."  In troublous times things sometimes become unhinged, but gradually "stability"  comes. Thi3 is well explained in a certain instance in one of the leading papers  as follows: "The cause making for stability is the fact that many weak holders have been wiped out, and their **:;iee.-'  taken by strong interests, fully able, te  protect themselves." oXno devil ni:iy  take care of the small holders, the prrs-*,  the hanks, and the people in "nigh piaec-  don't bother much about ihem.  ��� Stock fever hn? been endemic anions  the physicians ot Toronto fur the la's!  twenty-five years.

Edison 'has evolved and  tnnotmceu a theory Which" he believes  ���olves the problem that -has been puz-  iling scientists ever since the discovery made by Madame -Curie of  |he peculiar properties of radium and th*,  jindred substances uranium and thotv  aim. The phenomenon presented by  =:he3e=sub5tanees,^as"'i3":generally-i-knownr  �� their apparent property of giving o!F  ictinic rays of peculiar chemical properties), somewhat similar to the Hoentgen.  rays, without any apparent loss of energy or bulk. Based on these observed  phenomena several new theories of matter have been put forward, all of which  accept a-s a fact 4he apparent origin of  the energy within-the substances themselves.  1'h.. Edison's theory eliminates this  contradiction of accepted natural laws,  and indicates the possibility that the energy emitted by radium is merely reflected, as it were, from some unknown,  source  "I have made extensive experiments'  with the Hoentgen ray and with radium," said .Mr. Edison to a Tepre3cntativc-  of "Harper's Weekly," "and have conic  to tho conclusion that these new substances arc not the sources of energy,  but are rendered fluorescent by the action cf some hitherto undetected ether  vibration or ray. Ju?jt as the Roentgen,  ray and the Herzian wave remained undreamed of for centuries after, the phenomena of sound, light and heat were  well understood, so it is not only possible but extremely probable that there-  arc other rays i:i the'immense gamut  from sound..to ultra-violet which ivehave-  not yet discovered. In ..my own experiment:; I hare found that the ordinary-'  electric arc when wised to an -extremely  high temperature gives oil a ray which*  renders oxalate .'of.lithium-highly fluorescent.

In  the winter of lS3i he experienced tHo  following adventure, which is recorded in  the "History of Steamboat Navigation on-  the Missouri Kiver,*' by Mr. II. 31. Chittenden. He had occasion to cross tho  river, which was frozen deep.' There was  n path across, which ran between two  large air-hclcs through the ice. The  weather was extremely cold; and a bliz-  rard had already begun.  Captain La Barge wrapped himself  in a,blanket coat, held tight to his body  by a belt, and. was armed 'with a ride,  tomahawk and knife. He- felt ���confident  of crossing all right, for the distance  "was short, and he knew tho way &o well  that lie felt as if he could follow it  blindfolded. In fact, that was practi-  -cally his situation,' for\ the jwiii'd. drove  the snow iito his'face so'violently thai  jt was impossible to look ahead. Getting his bearings as well as he, could,  he started on o slow run in face of tho  ���  blinding storm.  It was in any cose a rcekles3 performance,   considering   the   existence   of   thi  air-holes near  the  pjth;   but La L.irge  was r.ot given to fearing future dang.ir^,  and forged boldly ahead.    For once hi*  confidence deceived him.'    All of a sudden-he plunged headlong into the river.  He instantly realized  that he was in  one of the air-holes, but which one?    If  it V.-3 3  the lower  one he  was certainly  lost,  for   the   swift   current  had  borne  'lim under the., ice before lie came.to the  .surface.    If it was  the upperfhole, he  * might float to the lower. ..       AA'-; -  lie   soon   rose  to" the'"'-surface    rind  bumped the overlying ice:    Sinking and  rising again, he bumped the ice a second  'time.    The limit  of endurance' was almost reached, when suddenly  his head  emerged into  the  open  air.    Spreading  'cut his. hands, he caught the edge of the  ,icc.   He held on until he could draw kU  knife, which he. plunged into the ice far  enough 'to give  him. something  to! pull  lagilast, and after miicb severe and'peril-  ious, oxer tion drew bimaelf-but.   He had  'stuck'to'his rifle air the  time" without  .'realizing the fact, and came out as fully  'armed as when he went in. *  But    now     a    new    peril    awaited  'liim.
