NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY  MAY 28, 19C4.  NUMBER. 46^  N  ews of the  mes  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  riioenlx I'loncer.  Both steam shovels are now at work  at the Granby mines once more.  Both furnaces at the Greenwood  smelter arc running in good shape  once more, after being repaired.  AVin. Fowler now has the Marguerite  machinery transferred to the Defiance,  and i3 having the same installed.  The total output for the Boundary  mines is now close to 2,000,000 tons���  and this in 1C3S lhan four years actual  shipping time.  Development work on the Minnehaha and Hercules claims near Danville, Wash., not far from Grand Forks,  is in progress. Seventeen men are  employed. -  It is said that the Combination, a  well known high grade claim near the  Elkhorn, will be worked before long', it  "having been under inspection by sev-  <eral parties of late.  It is said that there is still from four  to six feet of snow in Franklin camp  ���so much that Tho**. Newby and  others had to postpone sonic development work after proceeding thither.  The li. C. Copper Co., Ltd., has  taken a bond for' ?20,000 on the  Rhoderick Dim claim, one of the high  grade properties Long Lake camp,  that is owned by Greenwood and  Phoenix men.  Tn the Providence the main shaft is  now down 325 feetand the drifting is in  splendid ore. Now that a lot of dead  work has been done in this property.it  is confidently anticipated that the payment of dividends will soon be resumed  again.  As far as heard from, nothing new  has transpired this week in connection  with tlie merger of the Montreal and  Boston Copper Co.-and the Brooklyn  group in this camp. Those in a position to know, however,' believe that  even if the present deal should not go  through, the building of the Great  Northern to Phoenix, now assured,  will result in the active operation of  the Brooklyn group of mines.  JTruit vjr  rowing  The pamphlet recently issued by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company  for the information of fruit-growers,  farmers, stockmen, etc., contains  much that sliould interest the. residents of Kootenay district. Among  other letters contributed to the p un-  phlet are two on the fruit-growing  possibilities of Kootenay district���one  from T. G. Procter and the other from  James Johnstone.  Mr. Procter has had considerable experience in fruit-growing, and gives it,  as; hi3 opinion that "small' fruits  .(strawberries especially) apples, plums  - and pears can be successfully and pro-  Jitably .raised."  Mr. Johnstone has had an experience extending over many years in  ���Canada, Great Britain and tbe United  States, and here is his letter to Mr. II.  Bird, district land agent of the U. P. It.  " "at Nelson-:-; T      \~*    AA~  "Dear    Sib,���With    reference   to  your request that I should stale my  ' experience and give my opinion of the  advantages of   fruit-growing   in   the  Kootenay Lake district, I may say that  I consider the conditions here the most  perfect for fruit-culture on  the continent.    I have beeu  interested in fruitgrowing ia various parts of   Cauada  aud the United States during the past  20 years and until coming to Nelson in  19011 had found  the climate of the  Alleghany Mountains of   West  Virginia the most suitable for the best production of small fruits.    The shores of  Lake Ontario and Lake Erie aud the  valley of the St.  Lawrence from Lake  Ontario to Montreal I considered the  best for the production of apples and  the shore of Lake Ontario from Niagara to Toronto I believed to be the finest'peach section in America.    Fruitgrowing in the Kootenays is in Its infancy, as mining was the first attraction,   Within the past two years, however, we have shown that we can produce as fine apples here as in any part  of Ontario or   the Northern States.  Peaches are also grown here to perfection and I feel quite confident in asserting that the quality of small fruits produced, such a3 rasps, currants, gooseberries, strawberries and black currants  is superior to any produced elsewhere  on this continent.     In fact the Southern States, such as Virginia, Tennessee  and Gcorsia will not compare with this  section i a the prod uctiou of these frui ts.  double that of anything I ever saw or  succeeded in producing during a ten  years' experience in these States. One  average gooseberry bush in my Nelson  erarden bears finer fruit and as much of  it as six of my best bushes did in West.  Virginia and my West Virginia garden  excelled in the production of gooseberries for that country. I find I can  grow such vegetables as sweet corn and  tomatoes just as well as I could in Virginia. Potatoes'we grow to perfection  and the Champion of England and Ne  Plus Ultra peas reach a height of eight  feet iu my garden. I have not found  irrigation necessary and this adds  much to the superior quality of all our  fruit. From a commercial standpoint  the Kootenay Lake fruit grower has a  great natural advantage. The prosperous mining towns in his midst give  him a good-local market andhis-isthc  nearest fruit district to the North-West  Territories and Manitoba where the  finest grain is produced bat where fruit  cannot be grown to advantage. The  transportation companies are willing  to assist the Fruit Growers' Association  at all times to pjace the fruit in the  consumers' hands in the best possible  ;.) ������ ���   ��� ��� ���"������.���        ,���:������"!  condition. The fruit-grower will find  here an ideal home. The climate as  you know is perfect, the soil very rich  and productive and the market the  best. He will be surrounded by beautiful scenery and tho, shooting and fishing the best to be found anywhere. I  have no lund for sale or other axe to  grind, but simply state facts as I have  found them. During my professional  career as a Eailway Construction: Engineer "aud Mine Manager I haVe had  occassions to live in many sections of  tbis continent and travelled many  times from the Atlantic to the Pacific  and from Florida to the far North.  Whether. I have been in Europe or  America I have always had my garden  and fruit-growing has always been my  hobby, but nowhere in my experience  have I had such splendid results as in  my garden and orchard in Nelson.  After leaving my Scotch University  and before I had seen British Columbia  [visited Great Britain twelve times  and was always soiry to leave her  shores and thought my native land the  best place to live in when surrounded  by wealth and connection. I still enjoy a pleasant visit there, but British  Columbia will in future be my home in  The quality and size' here is far superior and the .yield per acre is at least J poverty or in wealth.''  EVENTS  Next Thursday the ratepayers of the city will be  asked-to vote on a by law, granting $5,000 to J. P.  McGoldrick, asa bonus .to a saw-mill proposed���to be  erected at One-Mile Point, ���with a capacity of one  thousand feet of lumber per day. In discussing this  project th*re are many important matters to be. considered. Nelson is already the centre of the great  mining industry of the Kootenays, and it is also the  universally recognized wholesale centre of the interior. It is written that mancannot live by -bread  and it is equally true that Nelson cannot prosper by  mining alone.  Mining will not support a large population, and it  remains to a great extent with the citizens themselves whether Nelson shall remain a small city, dependent altogether on the mining camps, or become  more ambitious and establish here a diversity of industries, each one of which will contribute towards  the upbuilding of a large and prosperous industrial  centre. We have ..already here quite a number of  small industries, all,of which distribute more or less  ready money amongst the merchants aud tradesmen.  It has been demonstrated that certain enterprises can  be conducted profitably here, and it-is the duty of  every citizen who has the future of Nelson at heart,  to encourage in every legitimate way our home industries. The dollar spent on any article mauufacr  tured at home remains in the city.  The saw-mill .which Mr. McGoldrick proposes to  erect in Nelson is a more pretentious enterprise than;  anything yet undertaken in the city. The" iniil "will  cost at least $250,000, most of which will be distributed in Nelson for building material and amongst  carpenters, etc. It will be thus seen that even the  preliminary expenditure will mean considerable to  Nelson���some profess to believe commensurate with  the amount ofthe bonus asked.  GOSSIP  Tiik Economist heartily endorses the following  from the Poplar Nugget: " Nelson is to have another  daily paper���a Liberal daily. The News has filled  all the requirements of the daily newspaper field for  the mining districts of the interior. It furnishes news  a couple of days earlier than the outside papers. It  has become one of the necessities among the towns  aud mining camps in which it circulates. It has not  been aggressively partisan, so hasas many friends  among Conservatives as Liberals. The field is not  large enough for two dailies, and an opposition that  would impair the present excellence of the News cannot reasonably expect the approval or patronage of the  public without giving a much better service. This  could not be done without backing from some corporation with designs on the public treasury. So the case  stands : With two papers in the field, the new one, if  honest, must be inferior to the old ; if backed by a  corporation, it will be run for the purpose of robbing  the public through the candidate or party which it  supports. In either case another daily would be a  very undesirable acquisition to Nelson or the country  of which it is the commercial center. If Mr. Jacksor*.,  has an inspiration���financial or otherwise���to moulu  public opinion, why not do it from Rossland ? There  is a good field, though limited, for a daily paper  there."  ales of the   X own  '-��-.       -W jr-lrf-"-.  Mr. and Mrs. George Brickell, a young couple of  Toronto, have planned a novel three years' tour of the  continent and started oiutheir journey last Monday.  The itinerary includes visits to Winnipeg, Vancouver,  San Francisco, the southern states and home again  via the Atlantic coast states. It is necessarily at this  period somewhat indefinite. The}' have secured a  a combined cafe car, parlor car and sleeper, all rolled  into one, and will be independent of railroad corporations. The trip will be made in an improved brand  of prairie schooner drawn by a couple of sturdy  horses.  But this will Be only a small benefit compared  with what is to follow. There will be employed in  the operation of the mill during the year 75 to roo  men, with a payroll of at least $7,coo per month,  nearly every cent of which will find its way to the  tills of the business  men of Nelson     A permanent  payroll is a necessity of our present situation. Without it business here can never be established on  a secure foundation.  -The Economist is well aware that there are many  who believe it is unwise to bonus this or any like concern, and who are willing to take their chances on  the industry being established here without any  concession. It is just possible that such a thing  might happen, but is it wise to take the risk? Several Eastern Canadian towns in their day took a like  risk, with tbe result tbat they lost forever big industrial concerns that would have been worth iu any one  year of their operation twice the concession asked  by the promoter. In this connection, it might also  be stated that the towns and cities in the East which  continue prosperous are those those that moved heaven and earth to establish big manufacturing concerns  in their midst.  The presence in Ashcroft, last week, of   William  Welsh recalls the early days of Quesnel Forks, Antler  and Williams Creek.    lie was with the first party that  mined at the Forks, aud went with it to Antler and  Williams Creek.    He was owner of a quarter interest  in the Chipps  claim on the last named   creek. N_ot_  until 1870 did he leave Cariboo and he has since  mined in Cassiar and Kootenay. He is living on a  ranch neat I.ytton. Speaking of the gold dredges  operating at Lyttou he is sanguine they will do well.  Hill's bar, he says, paid $300 a day to a single rocker  for two successive seasons, and he believes the Fraser  has many such bars that the dredges wilL-find. It is  rumored in Xytton that the Fraser River Gold Dredging Company will put on four more dredges, so well  satisfied are they with the results obtained.  However, this is a matter for the mature deliberation of the ratepayers themselves. If they seriously  believe that Nelson will continue to grow without  any effort or sacrifice on the part of the citizens  themselves, they can manifest that belief best by voting against the by-law. If they believe that $5,000  is too much money to pay for an industry that will  distribute every month nearly twice that amount  amongst the citizens, of course they should not overlook this opportunity of expressing themselves, and  incidentally advertising to the outside world that the  citizens of Nelson onlj' want that which they can get  J for nothing.  Mr. A. S. Farwell has returned from an extended  visit to the coast. In the course of his trip, he noted  tbat there is a marked improvement iu business everywhere throughout the interior. . At Revelstoke particularly there is every evidence of industrial activity.  All indications point to a prosperous year in the  Kootenays. . ������    .  Crooks generally have a decidedly  healthy fear of the Nelson police.  When a vagrant strikes the town he is  spotted at once and warned to move on  at his earliest convenience. In this  way the city has been kept comparatively free of seriou,-- offenses against  tbe law. But sometimes 11 vagabond  manages to elude the vigilance of the  police and succeeds in making a nuisance of himself before he is discovered.  One of those rascals, the other evening,  on an unfrequented street, insulted a  young married woman and insisted on  accompanying her home. It was well  for him he did not, for hei husband,  who is something of au athlete, would  have given the intruder a very warm  reception, and indeed he was so anxious to cultivate the acquaintance of  the offender that when informed of the  incident that he started in pursuit with  the hope of being able to teach him  a few lessons in etiquette.  After two adjournments, the case of  John Houston, charged by John Elliot,  with criminal libel, was gone into before Police Magistrate Crease yesterday. B. M. Macdonald acted for Mr.  Elliot and P. E. Wilson for defendant.  Witnesses were called to prove publication, and then Mr. Elliot explained  certain transactions between the city  solicitor and the city in 1808-99, showing how certain moneys came into his  hands. Mr. Houston contended that  he was justified in publishing the article. The magistrate committed the  accused to stand hia trial at the Fall  Assizes, the bail being placed at SG00���  accused and John "A. Irving going on  the bond.

It covers nearly 300 pages and is a faithful resume of what has been done in mining in British Columbia during the year ending December 31, 1903.  The report for the Nelson district was prepared by  Gold Commissioner Renwick, which is sufficient  evidence that it is well written and the information  accurate and comprehensive,  Frank McFarland, formerly of Nelson, ^but now a  resident of Vancouver, is in the city. Frank is traveling for a crockery house, and Jiis friends in Nelson  will be pleased to learn that he is prospering.  Although no official an noun cement  has yet been made regarding the  matter, it is understood that the street  cars will start running again on or  about June 4th.  Victoria clergymen now pray for the  members of the press. In Nelson the  newspaper workers are so incorrigible  that the prayers of the righteous would  avail them little.  Viii.ct uvt-r is mi up-to-dale (hy. It  latest evidence of progress is the organization of a ladies' lacrof-se team.  Hero is a pointer for Nelson women.  It will not do for the women ofthe  Kootenay metropolis to take a back  seat.  Alex Lucas, mining recorder for  Kaslo district, was in the city yester-  daj-, in uttei'f'fin^c on the court in the  Lucky Jack case. Mr. Lucas reports  the mining outlook for his district as  promising.  "Maloney's Wedding" is booked for  the Nelson Opera House for the even-  iug^of June 2nd. Tbis is said to be an  irrepressibly funny Irish comedy.  "Keep an Eye on Hubby" has the date  of June 20th.  When the 21 ten-ton steel ore cars,  recently purchased by the Granby  mines, are placed in use after changing guage of tracks, etc,, they will do  duty in the No. 2 tunnel. If they are  loaded and dumped once daily, the  amount will equal the normal tonnage  output. *-  There is a movement on foot to abandon the usual Dominion Day celebration and instead unite in making the  Industrial Fair a pronounced success.  The movers in this matter contend  that the success of the fair is of far  more importance to the residents of  Nelson than the celebration of the boll-  day. t  A,  'A*'  I  It?  if,  il,'  I  1  :��; -  s;'-o7 .���  ^A  5'V,;,   ���  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  The Economist  Published every Saturday afternoon at  VmiJfOJ* STliEET, Numon, IJ.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The" present parliament of Canada  has less than a year and a half U> live  at the most and is generally expected  ^^K    r  to be dissolved before that time.     A  glance at the issues is timely.  In 1896 the issues were the Remedial  Bill and the Tariff, as far as the Iii it hi i  provinces are concerned; *.\ith a  Frenchman leading one paityamlan  English-Canadian leading the other,  there could be no issue in Quebec or in  the French districts of New Brunswick.    The Remedial Bill  is now a  o dead issue : the iace for whose rights  the Conservatives stood threw away  *those rights for the glory of hat- ing :;  a leader of their own blood, li. t tlie  tariff question remains ; its present  name rather indeterminate, it has  travelled through Free Trade, (Jotu-  meiicial Uuion, Unrestricted Reciprocity, and Free Trade as lhey have il  in England.   Sir Wilfrid's last vow on  . the subject was " never to rest, until he  had wiped out the last vestige of the  iniquitous system of protection." The  country fairly rang with that battle-  cry. Poor Sir Wilfrid, perhaps his  long lack of rest accounk, for liis bad  temper and manners in the House, and  the o'erclouding of the onco bunny  ways.  That speech won for him a Cubdcu  Club medal, which he still treasures.  In the meantime what about Protection ? Still with u>, of course ; w e need  it and are deeply grateful to Sir Wilfrid for not wiping .it out, but we're so  sorry that he is self-condemned to restlessness for life.  But he and his colleagues have made  one advance : they have abandoned the  folly of pleading for better terms from  the United States. Sir John Macdonald saw its futility twenty-five years  ago, but Sir Wilfrid deserves great  credit for seeing it now.    It is a kind  ~llispensaUon_of~Providenee-tlmt-pol-  iticians' memories aro short; many  members of the House, including Sir  Wilfrid, whose breasts swelled with  pride at Mr. Fielding's declaration, that-  begging Washington was over, aro the  same who used to hiss and jeer at the  refusal oftho Conservative ministers to  go on the same errand.  The tariff system is not satisfactory,  ���Liberal "adjustments" have been  rather stupid���but there is no evidence  of any intention to experiment rashly  with Free Trade.

The Govern men I is taking the proper  course for the riding, when the election is bioujjht on without delay;  Were time for a protracted campaign  given it would aitoh the farmers, who  comprise the greater part of the electorate of this!-riding >in tlie midst of  Ihfir busy season and could have no  real effect on the issue. Every voter  in this tiding is perfectly competent to  go to tht: polls to-morrow if necessary  and vote with understanding on the  public qucsihus affecting this district.  Out* attention has been called to a  very extraordinary piece of injustice���  to put it mildly���which is being done  to British Columbia in the office of the  Canadian High Commissioner in London. It is to the effect that all obtainable information in that oflice as to the  Dominion of Canada conies to an abrupt halt at the eastern foot-hills of tho  1 Itocky Mountains. Of British Columbia and her resources, of the immense  mineral wealth of this Province and its  growing development, of its lumber and  agricultural riches, not ono word of  information can bo obtained by the intending settler'or investor, On the  contrary, he is bluflly informed that  the country is no good anyway, and  then his attention is skilfully drawn  aside to contemplate the ecstacies of  wheat culture on the prairies. We may  say at once that wc fully acquit  Lord Strathcona, the Canadian High  Commissioner, of any participation in  or cognizance of this gross discrimination against the most richly endowed  province in Canada in natural wealth.  Nor do we think that anyone  knowing that venerable pioneer of  western Canada could believe for a  moment that.he could countenance  such criminally foolish misrepresentation. The matter is reported to us as  coming from that department in the  oflice of the Canadian High Commissioner which is presided over by the  beuelicient influence*��f Mr. W. T. P,  Preston���a gentleman sufficiently well-  known In Canada. I  AT  MERCHANTS  Head Office Nelson, B. C.

After wandering ' aljqv.t    in  a  hopeless fashion they finally came upon  a little'hut, and the king Jiiniselt dis-  -mounted and rapped smartly upon tho  "door. j  "A young- girl answered his'.knock, and  soon  showed the men  the rUy-ht path.'  'Jhe Icing was a-bout to go,, when he'saw*;  a well near the house, and,.,at the sight  ���or^d-he^ot-re'iiT^  thirsty, .andi.^gq:ingj;ihtek>7ii-jiked the girl  '' tfo'r.'^ai'arink:.^ she .  ��� -went into*.the.,-hou'Ee.':and;;c��rnc out with  .7 ait',';;eartHpi^ the  well  : ;watet:;77;i3ut;'^instead;7.6tH;;SiLering   his ;  -royal 'rnajesty 'the' handle, as most poo- '  ple'would do., she held that herself, and  handed.Xi.m/lhe cup the wrong way.  The :king7said nothing, thanked lho  girl,, and he.; and his hand soon found  their way out of the wood.  But when 'he reached liis palace, he  determined to reward the girl L'or giv-.  ing him the water .-and at the saaue tin* a  to teach hor a lesson in politeness.  Sending to'his jeweler, ho bade him  make a silver cup, with  Iwo handles,  and^delivor it to the young girl, without a word as to whence it came.., ,  Perhaps a month after -this tho Icing :  again 'hunted    in    that    same  forest,  sought the hut and asked tlie girl for  another drink of water.                ��� j  This lime she entered the 'house and  came out with a bcr.iul.iful silver cup,  full  of  the  sparkling  water.    "Now," ,  thought   the  king,   "sho  has   certain! v j  learned a lesson."    But never  was ho  more mistaken, for 'the poor, ignorant  girl took a handle ln each hand, aud  for  the second  time offered  her liegp  lord nothing save the side of the cup.  The king rede away deeply perplexed.  He resolved to teach the girl the polits  way to hand a cup without directly rebuking her, and many were the hours  ihe spent in cudgelling his brains  for  some way in which to do it.   At last a  bright idea, struck him, and he sent for  his jeweler a second time.   "Make mo,"  said he to the man, "a silver cup, heavily  chased,  and  with  my royal crest,  and put three handles on it."   The jeweler, much surprised���for remember, no  . such thing had ever been heard of up  to this time���did as he- was told, and  soon the mug was finished. . As before,  the king had it .privately sent to the  girl who lived in the little hut.  One day not long after this for the  third time he rode into that forest, and,  taking the now well-known path, soon  reachedthe cottage. Dismounting, he  knocked at the door and asked humbly  for a drink of clear water. ,_L.v  Tlie gild immediately came out with  the beautiful  three-handled  cup,  and,  taking two of the handles in her hands,  she offered him the third.  gg the kinsjrode jAvay vr$l pleased  with, his strategy and, reaching homo  ordered three-handled cups to be mad  in every sort of ware,' ahd they became so popular that we now liari  them in all our shops and stores.

After maintaining the foregoing opinion  for eighteen years, I have found the  following well attested:.

The dancing of the two-step to  waltz time and the grotesque positions  assumed by the dancers are evils attributed to the college fads'that havs vitiated the public taste. "Some of theso  students" said one professor, "invent a  series of Simian contortions and football  tactics and give it'Vi_ college name, and  the public thinks it is all right because*  the college men do it. Now, we want to  stop-all this, and bring dancing back to  the old stylo of graceful carnage that  cnali'cd the dancers to.express the beauty ot" motion to music? A majority of  the people now seem to dance a two-step  to waltz music. This is not right. The  two-stop is easier to teach, as it is it  common time, nnd dancing it to waltz  music is not a correct movement."

Dated this 18th of May, A. D.1W4. j  Joua* McLATcmK, P. L S.  otice to our Customers and the General Pubiio:  This was the lirst Dry Goods business established  in Nelson, 14 years ago ; iVoni 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 tho stocks carried hy lirst  class houses in the large cities of the east, in fact  onr Stock is quite up to tl Ue in style, quality, etc.,  the o.tly point where wo are behind bur competitors in the oiihtern cities is in the question of  IMilCE. and in spite of that they arc making  more money than we are. This is explained by  the one word���CHED1T. Ft is the eur.se-of bu.si-  ncsd everywhere, and especially in the Kootenay  District, and we have decided to abolish it, absolutely and entirely. Under this system the cash  customer has been- paying more than the goods are  worth in order to mako up for- the losses tliat are  tinavi.idable where credit is given, not only iu the  absolute loss of accounts, but in the loss of interest,  aud other necessary expenses.     We have accounts  in our books (monthly accounts, that are NOT paid  fit the end of the month, as they are supposed to  be) that have been standing for six months, 12  months, IS months, and somo of them for YEARS,  and we have had to mortgage our future to pay  for the goods sjUI in this way, and our c.ish customers have beeu paying the interest. This is  plain tal'c, but it is true, an 1 every niji'ohant' in  Nelson knows it, and we propose to putiistop to it,  as far as we are concerned. Wo propose to c illect  every collectable outstanding account in our bonks  at once, (afid those indebted to us will please take  the hint) and from the 1st or JUNE, 1031, we will  take another stop forward in the march of civili;*-  tilion, from a business standpoint, ami sell for  CASH ONLY, anil by placing ourselves in a position to buy for cash, by taking our cash tliscounls,  by saving tbe expense of (iook-keepiinj, Postage,  and tlie thousand and ono things which naturally  belong to the Credit System, we cun save out* cus  tomers a very considerable amount each month in  the reduced prices at which wc 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 is fast becoming a  Wholesale centre, and tiiere is lib reason why she  should not take the place she is entitled to'as the  most important He tail City in the 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,  tlie.-.buyer quite as much as the seller, and while  thanking our customers one and all for the large  amount of patronage we have liliil in the past, wo  ask you all to co-operate with ns in onr endeavor to  carry out this scheme of mutual advantage.  NOTE ���During the month of .ftine we will give  a discount of 10 por cent ou all purchases over 50  cents, oil'our regular prices, and on a large number  of articles the discount will be 15 per cent.
