Ross has four men at work sinking on the Harvard Luke, Meadow  creek. The lead is 12 feet in width of  quartz, carrying free gold.  Lou "Williams started Wednesday to  run the second hundred feet of tunneling on the Home Bun for J. L.  Whitney of Rossland. This will give  a depth of between five and six hundred feet on the lead.  Martin and Axel Lundgren and Ole  Bcrglund have completed their summer's work on the Lardo King group  near Gold Hill. The group comprises  three claims���the Lardo King, Gold  Bar and Happy Four.  H. B. Smith of Rossland has been  engaged during the past ten days in  surveying the claims of Ibe Le Roi No.  2, which lie between the railway and  tbe hill back of Gold Hill, comprising  three claims and a fraction.  Sunday last John Nesbitt brought  in bome very line specimens of free-gold  quartz from his claims on Rapid creek.  There were also some specimens of shist  in which gold could be seen. The  specimens were on exhibition all week  nt the post oflice.  D. A. Murdoch, representing Nelson  parties, has bonded the Silver Glance  from J. Thompson and M. Kirlin, and  commenced development Wednesday  of this week. The Silver Glance lies  cast of the Lucky Jack and south of  the Bertha K, a galena proposition.  The WYOD company have been  working on their properties situated  about a mile from Gold Hill and near  the Lardo King group. The ledge,  which is six feet wide, has been  stripped for a, distance of thirty feet.  Assays run about $10 in gold.  The most important strike of the  past week was that on the Monarch,  a claim about six miles up Poplar  creek, owned by Magnussen, Strand  and Lawson, the locators of the Swede  group. The find is a 12-foot lead of  galena ore, which will concentrate  TibdutS tolr^TIielead has beeirstripped  about thirty feet. The claim is in the  same belt as the Spyglass, Great Britain and other well-known properties.  Several other claims have been located  on the lead.  GOSSTT)  BOUNDARY MINING MOTES.  Phoenix Pioneer.  Development is being done to the  Trilby claim, in Skylark camp.  J. K. Fraser. recently struck some  free gold ore on the Evening Star in  Wellington camp.  Development on the Mavis, Skylark  camp, under bond to Mike Kane and  associates, is encouraging.  Boundary ore shipments now run  from three to four times as much as  those from Rossland, every week".  On the Summit claim, Summit  camp, the tunnel is now in about 200  feet, and crosscutting is going on in  ledge matter.  A car of ore was shipped from the  Brey Fogle, Summit camp, this week,  for testing purposes at the Granby  smelter. W. T. Smith is working the  claim.  Four men are now at work on the  Roderick Dhu, in Long Lake camp,  recently rebonded to the Mother Lode  people by Dr. Spankie, Dr. Simmons,  Dr. Gordon and others.  The Providence Mining Co. has announced its third dividend of ten cents  per share, or about $3,000. This makes  $8,600so far divided in profits by thia  company, with the probability of a  dividend being declared in future every  month or oftener. The main shaft  will be deepened again shortly.  A large body of ore was recently uncovered on two claims in Wellington  camp, the Jackpot and Iron Clad. The  former is owned by Al Sanderson and  a partner, while the latter is owned by  J. J. Farrell, W. J. Porter and G. W.  Ru niberger. The ore is said to be similar to Athelstan ore, where the values  are so good. The lead is said to be 40  feet wide, and no one knows how long,  the location being pretty close to the  newlineof IheGreatNortlfern.  L  P,  ocal and  JTrovincial  J. S. Carter, district passenger agent  of the Canadian Pacific Hull way, is up  on the Crow's Nest Railway on a business trip.  Letters patent incorporating tlie City  of Ladysmith have been issued and the  certificate of incorporation signed bj'  the Lieutenant-Governor.  Mrs. R. F. Green, wife of the Chief  Commissioner of Lands and Works,  was in Nelson thia- week en route to  Victoria, where she will reside in future.  Captain William D. Bryant arrived  in Nelson a few days ago to take  charge of the work of the Salvation  Army during the absence of Adjutant  Dean.  Historical Society, Rev. Bishop'Gron-  ard, of Athabasca, was elected to hon-  ary membership ; A. C. Murray, of  Fort St. James, Stewart Lake, B. C,  and R. E. Gosnell, of Victoria, were  appointed as corresponding members.  Sydney Hattersley Mills, son of Mr,  and Mrs T. A. Mills, aged 14 months,  died yesterday. He had been ailing  for some days, and bis death was not  unexpected. Sydney was a particularly  bright little child, and the parents have  the sincere sympathy of their many  friends in their bereavement. Tlie funeral took place this afternoon. ���  The announcement from Ottawa that  the Government has decided upon the  payment of a certain proportion of the  bounty upon surplus lead ores exported  from Canada is favorably commented  upon in Nelson.  At the last meeting of the Winnipeg  J. Jensen, one of those principally  interested in the Danish colony established some years ago at Cape Scott,  the north-west extremity of Vancouver Island, is now in communication  with the Provincial Government relative to the introduction of more Danes  to the settlement. It is reported that  he has made satisfactory arrangements  with the Government, and willshortly  proceed to Eastern Canada and the  United Statas for the purpose of inducing as many Danes as possible to migrate to Cape Scott  On the 13II1 and 14th of next December, iu London, the Royal Horticultural Society will hold a show  of colonial grown fruits, and it is expected that most  of the sections of the different colonies will be represented     A circular describing the show says :  " The show will remain open on both dates until  10 p. m., so as to give all classes ofthe public an opportunity of seeing specimens of the varied products  of the British Empire. The agents-general und  crown agents are most khidly rendering every assistance, and we trust that both growers and exporters  will do their best to seud in exhibits worthy of our  colonies, and to show what can be produced for the  home markets."  Hon. J. H. Turner, agent-general for British Columbia, is anxious that the Province should be represented on this occasion, aud will do everything in  his power to draw attention to the fruit-growing capabilities of British Columbia. Last autumn the  fruit display at tbe Industrial Fair held in Nelson,  was undoubtedly one of the best ever seen at a fair  in Canada. It tniglit be well for some of the fruitgrowers of the Kootenay to move in the matter of a  display for the Royal Horticultural Society exhibition. No better advertisement could possibly be  suggested.  The practically unanimous endorsation of tbe bylaw granting a bonus of $5,000 to the sawmill to be  erected by J. P. McGoldrick and others is conclusive  evidence of the liberal spirit in which the citizens of  Nelson are disposed to encourage industrial enterprises. The contention of the majority of citizens  that every industry that will tend in the direction of  creating, a payroll should be generously encouraged,  is,the propier one. We have too long labored under"'  the delusion that mining alone should be encouraged. As a matcer of fact mining under even the  most favorable conditions will uot support a large  population. If Nelson depended j>n mining alone  for an existence, its population would not be one-  third what it is at the present time. Of course, the  city is not advantageously situated for manufacturing enterprises of many kinds, but the production of  lumber is one of the things that can be carried on  profitably. The McGoldiick company has now secured what it asked for in the way of bonus, and it is  expected that work on the new mill will proceed  without delay.  The desirability of clean, healthy amusement in a  tourist resort is most clearly shown iu the experience  of the city of Victoria. That city had already a  theatre and several houses where vaudeville only was  given, but the demands of the public have justified  the opening up of another place of amusement  which will serve the double purpose of providing  high-class vaudeville and accommodating travelling  combinations. This latest addition to the amusement houses of Victoria is under the control of Robert Jamieson, the veteran manager, and,the patronage  it has already received, justifies the belief that it will  become one of the permanent institutions ofthe  Capital City. On the opening date last week, there  were 2,000 paid admissions at the Grand, the largest  number ever chronicled by a Victoria theatre. Visitors to the capital will find that the new house meets all  their requirements in the way of high-class amusement.  The citizens of Vancouver have been asked to subscribe to the Fresh Air Fund of New York City.  This proposal has brought forth a letter from Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper in the Vancouver papers  suggesting assistance to the Children's Aid Society of  Vancouver, instead of sending money away to New  York City. This position is heartily endorsed by the  Vancouver Province on the grounds that charity  should begin at home. This is the right position to  take. Canadians will sympathize with the suffering  children of New York City, but they have children  nearer home that demand their immediate attention.  The institution at Vancouver is maintained for the  purpose of maintaining children who have been taken  from inhuman parents, and who will be given an opportunity of becoming useful citizens. These children  in many cases by being provided with a home will be  saved from grossly immoral surroundir.gs. Take the  case of little Victoria Wilcox, for instance, who was  sent to the children's home this week. This child,  bright in a way, has lived in an environment that  would corrupt a saint. Through the aid ofthe representative of the Children's Aid Society she has been  removed to Vancouver and will there be surrounded  with healthy influences. This is only one case. There  are enough children living 'in -squalor -and filth  throughout the Province to engage the attention of  British Columbians without sending money away to a  foreign city.

Baker is genuinely     rlM  The overwhelming defeat of the Victoria Locrosse  team by the Vancouver players the other day has  caused a great deal of discussion in lacrosse circles at  the coast... It appears that this year the Victoria club  has imported a lot of men,-but through lack of practice 01 for some other reason they fell down before the  Vancouver giants. For this reason it is possible the  Victoria club may have to fall back on their intermediates. It is doubtful if the Westminster team will  play with either the Victoria or Vancouver teams,  having resigned some weeks ago from the league.  One of the New Westminster team when in Nelson  last week said there was no probability of the Royal  City team playing on the coast this year. This will  leave thej-ame to Victoria and Vancouver. In the  meantime, Victoria is considering seriously the advisability of dismissing the imported players.  -  In an interview in the, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, J.  N. Grieve, a Canadian Government'"agent 'whose  headquarters are at Spokane/said :  " One would be surprised at the number of Ameri-  icans who are going, into Canada this year in order  to purchase agricultural lands at a reasonable figure.  From my office Tissue on an average of 150 certificates tor settlers, representing some 500 persons, per  month, and many mouths I go way over that number. Last April for instance I issued 293 settlers'certificates. As many of those issued were to families,  I suppose they represented 600 people. Last year, at  a conservative estimate, 7,000 homesteads in the Canadian Northwest, and panicnlarly in Alberta, were  disposed of to Americans."  ���-Reports of-a-similar -character-reach~us-from"ail  over the continent, and can only induce the belief that  Canada will in the next few years double her present  population. But it is not the Northwest that is benefitting by this influx of immigrants ; British Columbia,  and the Kootenay in particular, is already reaping substantial advantages'-'in the way of new settlers and the  introduction of capital. Visitors to Nelson are greatly  surprised at the amount of development work that is  going on in the way of fruit-growing. Hugh Gilmour, of Vancouver, who was here the other day is  reported to have remarked to a Vancouver paper on  his return, that "it was surprising the number of  orchards springing up on Kootenay Lake between Nelson and Kootenay Landing. The product is good, and  the market is right to hand," concluded Mr. Gilmour.  Sooner or later, and it now looks as if the time had  almost arrived, those immigrants who prefer fruitgrowing to wheat-raising will devote their attention  to the fruit rauches of British Columbia.  A few weeks ago, we referred to the necessity of  improved J methods in the packing and shipment of  fruits. Last year considerable fruit was damaged in  the shipment. This is not likely to occur again, at  least in so far as the Dominion Express Company and  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company can prevent it.  That express company has agreed to give the fruitgrowers of this Province ventilated cars which will  materially improve the facilities for putting the products of the orchards in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and other places in a much better condition than  has ever been done before. R. M. Palmer, the freight  commissioner, has also been assured by the C. P. R.  Company that freight shipments will be handled  much better this year than formerly. With a good  prospect for fruit these arrangements will mean much  to horticulturalists this season.  of religion takes liberties with the Eng  liuh language that would land another  man in gaol is in the same position as  the editor who under the guise of safeguarding the rights of the people presumes to defame respectable citizens.  The" fundamental principle of Christianity is to make the world better;  and the freedom of the press is too sacred a right to be made tbe vehicle  whereby an   unscrupulous   man   can  malign a   defenceless citizen.   Sensationalism in the pulpit of the present  day is probably doing more than any  other   single agency to   discredit religion.   The belief once prevailed that  the   Bible and New Testament contained enough food to furnish the average preacher with texts from which  to expound the inspirations andaspir-  atlons   of* the   first   teachers.     Now  things have changed.     Many of the  preachers of the present day seem disposed to ignore the Book of all Books  altogether and turn to the sensational  press for their texts and inspiration.  In doing so, great harm must come to  God's revealed religion.   A mistaken  a nd "grossly exaggerated belief of its  privileges has led the yellow press into  committing the most flagrant offenses  against   good morals.    So much   so,  that parents who desire to see  their  children become ornaments to society  by their conduct through life will not  permit many of tlie papers published  in the larger cities of the "United States  to enter the home without first exercising a strict ..censorship as to their  contents.    Of course, this to a certain  extent prevents in jury from this source.  The circumspect parent can also restrain liis child from attending a worship where the preacher holds out as  an extra attraction the discussion of  subjects that are never hinted at in a  well regulated home.    But the father*  and mothers cannot prevent children  of tender years from readingon bulletin  boards and elsewhere announcement."  of a  grossly suggestive character, and  which  can   only   have the  result   of  arousing   the curiosity of the young.  In comment ing in thi.sway.TjiFiEco^^  oaiiST has no desire that ita remarks  should be taken as having any local  significance.    Tlie object is rather to  arouse parents-to a realization of  the  peril tlieir children may be subjected  to by blind and irresponsible teachers  under the cloak of Christianity. .  <l7>  ���-..��-757*3  humorous,  and   created    no  end   of.  laughter.

The accident, which occoured about two years  ago in the Coal Creek mines, lias been  before the courts in various forms  several times, and has at last reached  tho trial judge. The case is noteworthy, not only from the eminence  of the counsel engaged, but also on account of the fact that much depends on  the testimony of experts engaged on  both sides. There are live test cases,  but they only represent a small proportion of the number of actions entered against lhe company. It is believed that the trial will last at least  two weeks longer. There have been  several   interesting tilts between the  H ji  counsel on the opposing sides.

Hall was collector  of taxes for the Province, and the cause  of his downfall is said to have been  high living. A few years ago no man  in Victoria was held in higber esteem  than Tom Hall. Through business reverses he lost a foi tune, and was given  the position of Collector of Taxes by*  the Provincial Government. If he has  committed the crime with which be is  charged he will have to pay the penalty, but there will be a strong feeling  of sorrow over his downfall.  Three well-known citizens appeared before Police Magistrate Crease  to-day charged with malicious destruction of property. The trio, it appears  from the evidence already given, were  endeavoring to emulate the exploits of  Carrie Nation by destroying a sign  with an inscription which they re-*  garded as objeciionable. In defense it  was contended that the sign contained  writing that was likely to have a bad  effect morally. The magistrate discharged one of the accused, and the  other two were ordered to pay for the  broken sign and the costs, if any, prosecutor was subjected to in securing witnesses. A contra charge was laid  against the man who had written the  oblectionable language on the sign, but  was withdrawn on condition that no  more announcements of the character  would appear in future.

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  The Government organs of the D>  minion are driven to sore straits to defend the Grand Trunk Paoiii��' contract.  It is worthy of note tbat they unanimously ignore Sir Wilfrid's pathetic  protest that the cost to Canada will not  exceed $15,000,000 and with one consent admit that the national liability  for it will bo over $100,000,000. Sit  Wilfrid's speeches may be silvery, but  his figures have not even the stability  of that fluctuating metal.  Any criticism of the . terms of the  contract is answered bv an titterlv fa I-  lacious comparison with the terms of  the bargain between a Conservative  Government and the Canadian Pacific  . Railway Company over thirty years,  ago. As we have pointed out in a. pie-  vious issue, there is a great difference  " In circumstances. The Government of  that day had a pledge to redeem ; this  Province, which was imperatively  needed to fulfill the purpose of Confederation and make possible the do-  ���velopment of a great country, required  railway communication with the East.  The-project was so great that no**Ijib-  eral believed it3 attainment possible.  Now, it is eminently desirable but  not vital to our national existence that  a parallel road should be  built to giv*  breadth to the country ; but the  price  paid for   the first railway cannot ui-  tioually be made the measure of the  value ofthe second.  / Conservative suggestions in committee have been met by silence and killed  by the docile party majoi ity.   But the  country is still be reckoned  with.    Sir  -Wilfrid may find sunny ways will n<t  dazzle the eyes   of  Canadians when  thoir  attention is invited to figures.

Tbe mining industry has now assumed such large proportions tbat coi fnuous prosperity is  now assured, and it is unlikely that  business will experience the fluctua-  tons tliat characterized the conditions  which have prevailed here in the past.

We admit, as we have always admit.  indicates that the demeanor of the  Government's supporters in the House  showed that they realized that fact.  Therefore, while we approve the project itself, as one the realization of  which will do great things for Canada,  we must condemn the terms of the  agreement as extravagant and not securing for the country what it should  have received in return for the profuse  liberality extended to the company.  British Columbia in particular may  well be aggrieved that no regard has  been had to lier interests, in the omission of any clause requiring construction to be commenced on this Coast  simultaneously with the beginning of  work at Winnipeg and elsewhere. We  need not say much about theextension  to Moneton. A sop to political nesessi-  ties and party exigencies it is still possible that the physical difficulties of  the rugged mountain region that must  be traversed, may yet cause it to be  abandoned.

Ih "Lives of the 'Lustrlous," a wlo-  graphical dictionary Just issued in Eng��  land, It Ss said that when Hall Caine,  ���whose reaemblance to Shakespeare ii  well known, landed ln New York on a  trip to America, he was accosted by  the late Ignatius Donnelly, a stranger  to him, with the words: -Lord Bacon,  3 presume."  Some of the late Lord Randolph  Churchill's friends once tried to have  Lord Salisbury reinstate his erratic  lieutenant. Sali.st.ury listened to thorn  patiently, and then asked: "Have any  of you ever had a carbuncle on tlio  back of your neck?" "No," was ths  reply. "Well, I have," retorted his lordship, "and I don't want another."  At a dinner-table in London the conversation turned on speaking. Curran  stated that he could never speuk In  public for a quarter of an hour without  moistening liis lips. ��� "I have the advantage of you then, Curran," said Sir  Thomas Turton, a pompous and pretentious member of Parliament. "I  spoke the other night In the House of  Commons for five hours on the Nabob  of Oude, and never felt in the least  thirsty." "That is very remarkable,  Indeed," replied Curran, "for everyone  agrees that It was the^driest speech of  the session."  Dr. Gordon, who was the first minister  of  the   church   in  Jamaica  Plain,  about the year 1771, was a Scotchman,  very stern and arbitrary in his manners,  and  precise  and  orderly   In   his  own habits.   The following anecdote of  him is recorded In the family journal  ot  one   of his   old  parishioners:     One  Sunday,  -while  preaching,  he had begun to develop his theme with the usual "firstly," and got through that and  "secondly."    Then,  turning the leaves  of his manuscripts he said: "Thirdly,"'  a second time "Thirdly," and again in  ���great embarrassment, "Thirdly!"   Just  then a little girl in one  of  the front  pews stood up and said:  "Please, sir,  thirdly flew out of the window  some  time ago."  jfcyeaclie a  j Headache.

I'.LkS.  otice to our Customers and the General Pubiic  This was the first Dry Goods business established  in Nelson, 14 years ago ; from that time to the  present we have always, kept in the lead, and we  carry to-day a stock which will in every respect  compare favorably with the stocks carried by lirst  class houses in the large cities of the east, in fact  our Stock is (Hiitc up to date iti style, quality, etc.,  Llif only point where wc are behind our competitors in the eastern cities is in tlie question of  IMIICE, and in spite of thut they arc making  more money tintn we are. This is explained by.  the ono word���UJtEDLT. Tl is the curse of business everywhere, and especially in the Kootenay  District, anil we have decided to abolish, it, absolutely and entirely. Under this system the cash  customer has been paying more than the goods are  wonh-in order tn mako up for tlie los.-cs that are  iinavi idable where credit is given, not only in the  absolute.loss of accounts, but in the loss of interest,  and other necessary expenses.     We have accounts  in our books (monthly accounts, that are "NOT paid  at tlie end of the month, U3 they am supposed to  be) that have been standing for six months, 12  months, IS months, and some of them for YEARS,  and we have had to mortgage our future to pay  for the gooJssoldin this way, and our e.ish customers have been paying the interest. This is  plain talk, but it is tra>, an.I every in .'reliant in  Nelson knows it, and we propose to put a stop to it,  as far as we are concerned. We propose to collect -  every collectable outstanding account in our books  at once, (and those indebted to ns will please take  the hint) and from the 1st of JUNE, 1001, we will  take another step forward in the march of civilisation, from a business standpoint, and sell for  (JASH ONLY, and by placing ourselves in a position to buy for cash, by taking our cash discounts,  by saving the expense of Hook-keeping, Postagp,  and the thousand and one things which naturally  belong to the Credit System, we cm save our cus  tomers a very considerable amount each month in  the reduced prices at which we propose to sell our  goods. This, we are sure, will be duly appreciated,  and all we ask is an opportunity to prove it to you.  Nelson   is no longer a hamlet, but a city of respectable  proportions.     She   i.s   fast becoming a  Wholesale centre, andthere is no reason why she  should not take  the place she is entitled  to as tlio  most   important Retail  City  in   Lhe  interior   of  British Columbia.     This she cannot do as long as  she is satisfied   to continue  in   the old-fashioned  ruts.   The proposed change will benefit all parties,  the buyer quite as much ns the seller, arid while  thanking our customers one and all for the large  amount of 'patronage wc have had iu the past, we  ask yoft nil to co-operate with us in our endeavor to-  carry out this .scheme of mutual advantage.  NOT If!���During the month of June we will {rive  a discount of It) per cent on all purchases over 50  cents, off our regular prices, and on a large number  of articles tlie discount, will be 15 per cent.
