This little girl is  regarded as a marvel hy those who  have heard her whistling.  It now looks as if Ashcroft and not  Kamloops is to be favored with the  much talked of sanitarium. While at  Victoria recently, Mr. John Shields interviewed the Government with respect  to the sanitarium question, and it is'understood  that Premier  McBride   and  v..  ..colleagues agree with Mr. Shields that  AshcFwft would be a likely place for its  establishment and promised to look  further into the matter.  A. IT. Kelly, manager of tho Reliance Gold Mining and Milling Company, has returned frum Spokane,  whore he made arrangements for the  installment oftho Jlendryx process for  the above company.  EVENTS AND  Commissioner .Towelt has decided  the assessment value of the lands held  in this province by the Spokane Falls  and Northern railway shall be 45 cents  per acre, instead of ��1.00 per acre as  was valued by Assessor Renwick.  Nelson Lacrosse tram will play either  Revelstoke or Medicine Hat, at Kaslo,  on May 2-lth. The home of the Nelson,  team is considerably stronger than that  of last year and in spite of the loss in  the defence she can win with a little  good practice.

"Kirby is 08 years of age.  An effort i.s being mnde to revive the  tobacco growing industry at Kelowna.  Winnipeg 'capitalists have been investigating the matter. They have had  samples of leaf grown there examined  by experts, who have advised them the  tobacco is prime quality for the manufacture of cigars, but the difficulty has  been in curing. With expert aid in  this direction there is no doubt the industry can be successfully established.  Tlie district could raise millions of  p<-tinds of tobacco annually to replace  that imported, and is probably the only  district in Canada where cigar tobacco  ean be successfully grown, though  tobacco suitable for chewing' plugs-is  abundantly produced in the East. The  Winnipeg people propose to establish  a large cigar factory at Kelowna or  Winnipeg.      .-������������  N  ews of the  mes  *"PH�� Poplar Nugget is extremely anxious that the.Governinent will proceed  lo construct the wagon road bridge over  laTWeek7so'that" "th'e-peopItfciuTget"  goods across the creek without hauling  .over the railway bridge as they have  to do at present. The foot bridge now  in use is too old to do much more service, and as there is about ��1,600 left  out of the appropriation of ��2,500 provided for the two bridges, it is hoped  that no delay will be permitted to occur in the early commencement, and  completion of the very neecsr-ary bridge  across Poplar creek, for the people are  doing their share to build up the camp  and make it a revenue-producer for the  Government-.  The announcement thnt the St. Eugene will shortly resume operations,  will be hailed with delight. Tlie St.  Eugene isoneof the greatest, silver-lead  mines in the country and is able to produce 20,000 tons of 05 per cent lead annually.  It is reported from R wshind that  mining is picking up in that camp.  Several Spokane   mining men   have  Lust week the Sandon mines shipped  10(> tons of ore. or 8038 tons to date.  A sljde   '2u���da.._aj:^_yi__t|W_._iwvder  On Thursday evening at the Board of Trade rooms  was completed the work of organization of the new  Liberal-Conservative Association. For obvious rea-  sone it was considered advisable to name tlie new association the Liberal-Conservative Union of Nelson.  There was a very satisfactory attendance, and* it was  reported by the gentleman having charge ofthe roll  that already ninety-five had signed the roll of membership, and reports from various sources induce the belief that within a month the association will have a  meniLership of at least two hundred. It was decided  that the officers of the association should consist of  two honorary presidents, a president, two vicerpres-  idents, a secretary-treasurer and an executive consisting of sixteen members. The president, vice-presidents, and secretary-treasurer were elected by.acclamation, and the executive board by ballot. Tbe officers  chosen areas follows:  Hon. president, R, L. Borden, Richard McBride.  President, Dr. W. O.' Rose; ist vice-president,  Frank Fletcher; 2nd vice-president, Dr. T. F. Stoddart ; secretary-treasurer, E. C. Wragge.  Executive committee���D. M.

Mr. McBeth has fought the Prince  of Darkness with the same courage and fortitude displayed by his grandfather, who fought for his Sovereign for seven years on the burning sands of India  and was immured in the Black Hole of Calcutta, and  who survived all to live to the age of 107 years. The-  rev. gentleman is an able pulpit orator, and has  written several interesting works on early life it-  Manitoba and the Northwest. His many friends iu  this Province will always be pleased to hear of-his  success in his new field of labor.     ,  T.  ales of the   JL own  T,  Shipman's Comedians fully justified everything  that was promised by the advance notices. No better specialty work was ever seen here than that done  by Bert Harvey. He is a clever singer and an actor  of considerably more than average merit. Miss  Courtney sings aiid dances well and .appeared ; to  great advantage iu the sketch which concluded the  evening's performance. Altogether the entertainment was one ofthe most enjoyable ever presented to  a;Nelson audience, and it is a pity the patronage it  received was not commensurate'with its.merit.  There is scarcely any need of explanation as to why  this new association was formed. There has been a  split in the Conservative party in Nelson for some  time, arising largely over the. iact;that intheold as-;  sociatioh, the offices were held only by men:'wt*ro ���w&i.  avowed followers of Mr.. Houston. Tbis: was the  necessary qualification, and was strictly adhered to in  the selection of every officer. Those who did not acknowledge him ss.their political mentor .were barred  from office, and' were compelled to sit in the outer  chambers while the faithful moulded policies for them.  They could pay their dues, or contribute to the funds  of the organization, but were not permitted to have  anything to say as to the manner in which the affairs  of the association was conducted. This was taxation  without representation, on a smaller scale than that  which has caused one or two perplexing wars. They  had to further submit to the abuse bt the more foul-  down   the streets, referring  to, the dissidents in   the  vilest language of the gutters.  Next Sunday Rev. Mr. Ferguson, the new pastor  of St. Paul's Presbyterian. Church, will preach his  first sermon in Nelson. No doubt there will be a  large congregation, for Mr. Ferguson's fame as a  pulpit orator has preceded him. ,.

Government. As long as the association occupied this position of hostility to Mr.  McBride and his Government it was felt that they  could not consistently belong to that organization.  Therefore, it was decided to form a new association���  one that would not   only lend its  aid to the party in  Phoenix INo.ieer. I .    .

The coast cities are pursuing a vigorous  campaign in the direction of securing  tourists, and the probabilities are that  there will be much money spent by  the visitors at these points this year.  It would be well if the Kootenay as-  sociation could devise some scheme to  work in conjunction with the Vancouver and Victoria associations.      1  theatre has had the effect of inducing  the authorities to demand greater pro-  lection against fire in theatres in every  city in Canada and the United States.  In the Nelson Opera House there have  been several changes made recently  with the desire of increasing the security of its patrons. The most important  change has been the building of a stairs  up to "the gallery by which au exit is  inade that will result in emptying the  the house iii just half the time. The  Nelson Opera House is now so arranged  .t.hat danger from panic is almost impossible. The desire on the part ofthe  management to secure comfort and  convenience for their patrons is praiseworthy.  Some of Mr. Blakemore's friends feel  a little aggrieved that The Economist  should have associated that gentleman  with human wrecks of the. McSwain  type. One of these complainants, who  is also a stockholder in the Tribune,  says it is an outrage to treat a gentle-  nian.in thismauner. If Mr. Blakemore  chooses to mix up with characters of  the virulent type referred to, he must  not complain if the public takes him at  exactly his own estimate. A.tree is no  more surely known by its fruit than a  man is ;by his associations. If Mr.  Blakemore is not a contributor to the  publication which each .week, contains  the vile' calumnies of the irresponsible.  McSwain, all he has to do is to soy so,  and The Economist will be the first  to glace hjin right with tlie public. In  the meantime", the hoary-headed old  iriisehief-maker who spends all his time  on Baker street, whining about Mr.  Blakemore's grievances, spreading discord and maligning people who refuse  to speak to him, should be removed  to some place of safe-keeping.  H. E. Croaisdaile has decided upon  extending his business and with that  end in view has secured the services of  Duncau McFarland to assist him. Mr.  McFarland is an energetic business  man, and Mr. Croaisdaile has been exceedingly fortunate in securing the  services of so able an assistant. ,.  It is often a matter of wonder to the  visitor to Nelson that the citizens have  taken such little interest in the city as  not to make it less difllcult than it now  is to discover the names of the streets.  Of course every resident, of Nelson  knows the names of tbe streets, but tbe  stranger within our.gates is often perplexed when he is told that. the man  for whom he is looking lives on such a  street and then spends an hour trying  to find the place. Some time ago there'  may have been a sigh-post stating the  :name, of. the street^ but ,now:, the  atranger'"has . to ring a" doorbell  to. -secure' the desired, information.

When it  became  known  that the  little fellow had  strayed away from  his home every man   who could  possibly absent himself from his buisness turned out  to assist in thesearch aud'many were the.prayers that  ascended to heaven that the boy would be alive when  found.     It was a  disappoin'trhent when  the  word  came that the body had been found but that life must  have been   extinct ��� for several   hours before.    There  are many  things iu connection with the boy's death  that will be hard to understand.     How a child of a  little over four years succeeded in climbing the mountain to where'he was tound is exceedingly difficult to  comprehend^ ' 'It was a task that would tire many a  full-grown   pe'fisoh, let alpue a four-year old boy who  had   just  recovered  from  a  severe   attack  of: the  grippe.        The  seeming   impossibility   of a  child  climbing   such   a   hill  caused  many  to   regard  a  search around the point at which he was, found as a  waste of time, and if it had not been so regarded it is  quite probable he would have been found on Thursday evening.    If it had not beeu for thd discovery of  the footprints in the snow, the body might  haye  remained where it was found for years.    The bereaved  parents have the sympathy of everyone  in this the  hour of their great trial.

The  hist issue of the Tribune afl'ords startling evidence of the great danger that  can be done by giving encouragement  to immigrants of the McSwain type.  Tiiere was enough " hogwash" (to  appropriate a word from John Houston's somewhat expressive vocabulary)  in it to. pollute a whole Province, and  yet we find people here in our midst,  fortunately only a. few, who laugh at  the filth which the McSwine throws at  iiiofl'susive citizens. By all means let  us have a law that will prevent fur-  migration from the Scotch slums.  This is an era of expansion. The  merger is abroad in the land, and even  some ofthe churches seem disposed to  unite in order to better carry on their  work. Tbis being the case,-it appears-  to many that the time has about'arrlved  when the .city.s.hould.considerseriously,  seriously the advisability of extending  its limits and   taking in that:populous  section known iu? Fairview.    The ad- ,  vantage to both the oity of Nelson and  the residents of Fairview of such an  arrangement must be apparent to all.  It would  give increased  population to  Nelson and compensating advantage's .  to the residents of Fairview.   It is generally  understood that the Fairview*  people would be pleased to become part  of the corporation of Nelson, and the  matter could be easily arranged.   Now  is the time for the City Council to proceed   in this matter, lest the Falryjew  people may take it into  their heads to  annex   Kaslo or some other populous  district  aud become a keen competitor,  of Nelson for the wholesale trade.  The lire at Ed. McLeod's house the  other day showed what can be done by  intelligent firemen when called upon  to fight flames.

The  victims   of  the Tribune's wrath   are  men who have conducted respectable  places of business since the time tbey  first opened in the city.   The attempt  that has been made to bring them into  bad repute and ridicule is not fair play,  and the Tribune is not receiving much  encouragemeut in its crusade against  ���them.    It  is  a   noteworthy   circumstance that tbe hotels and saloons of  Nelson are conducted iu a manner tbat  will compare favorably With,Any city  in Canada, an'" any attempt to readjust  the existing condition   ��f affairs can  only   resuv  *u   making   matters   far  worse.   .  >varly every town in theliootennya  r^cept Nelson hiu a baseball team; THE NELSON ECONOMIST  The Economist  Published every Saturday afternoon al  Vernon Street, Nelson, 13.

It, may, however, be reasonably supposed that tlie  approach of a general election makes it  desirable that new men with new-  ideas sliould be in the forefront ofthe  battle- Ministers like governments  become stale and eight years is a long  time for one party to be in possession  of power. I'erhaps, however, the electors may take it into tlieir heads to  supplement Sir Wilfrid Laurier's efforts  at Cabinet re-construction and decide  that as " it is time for a change," it  would be more in tbe country's interest  to construct a brand new Conservative  Cabinet.

The citizen of Vienna who does  not wish to be out of poelcet must  keep early hours, for after ten  o'clock he Is taxed on entering hia  own house, or, for the matter of that,  any house. The "sperrgeld," or door-  opening- tax, is peculiar to Vienna, aa  the London "Express" explains. The  entire population of that city, num-  'bering- nearly two millions, are practically imprisoned in their houses from  ten o'clock in the evening until six  the next morning1. Z'hey ean go in or  out only by paying at least four cents  to the janitor or "house-master," as  ���he is called.  Vienna is built on the "flat" or apartment-house plan. Millionaires and  working people alike live in houses of  this description. The houses are large,  ^havinsr,fly_eior^six.,tloors,^w.il.h,foui7flaL3_  on a floor, so that it is not unusual to  ���find a hundred persons living under  one roof. There is one common entrance from the'street, and after ten  o'clock at night this door is bolted and  barred. From ten until twelve all who  go in or.out must pay four cents. After twelve the charge is doubled.  The tax must be paid every time one  passes through the doorway, without  exception? If a man has occasion to  go ln and out half a dozen times, he  must pay every time. One who has  dined with a. friend must, if he stay  late, pay tour cents to net out of his  friend's house, and four more to get  Into his own. A telegram in the night  necessitates the payment of the tax  ���before the boy ean enter.  The house-master also co!!ect3 and  keeps duplicate copies of the forms on  which every individual in the house  must report to the police his age,  ���birthplace and religion, his exact occupation, and other personal details  which, the Austrian authorities insist  upon knowing. Nor does the power of  this Important personage end even  here. From the little guard-room  which he occupies at the foot of the  stairs he sees every one who goes in  or out. He ascertains with amazing  accuracy the amount of each tenant's  Income, the events of his family life,  and the character of his visitors. His  far-reaching power enables him to terrorize every servant in the hoii3e Into  entering his intelligence department,  and thus he spies on the innermost  life of the subjects in his five-storey  kingdom.  In some cases the house-master. Is  more powerful than in others. An  English resident was obliged to move  from an apartment that he particJ-.  larly liked because he could not venture to speak with any degree of  sharpness to the man at the door, even  when the man was remiss in his duties. The Hat was owned by a railway belonging to the State. This made  the .house-master a State official, an  Insult to >vhom ls a very serious offence in Vienna. A reprimand for delaying letters would be construed Into  an insult, and the Englishman deemed  it wise to move to other quarters.  Thousands of people in Vienna liva  In such terror of the house-master  that,  it is said,  they never make an  Curious "���  News.  ���Mark Hanna's tecretary says that  ulnce 1S9G over five hundred children  have been named after the Republican  ".boss."  At the time -when the Duke and  Duchess of Cornwall were ln Yltftoria,  B.C., there were t'.iree families living  In Quebec street named respectively  "George," "Corn\v��j-]i," and "York," and  the eldest Miss George had the Christian name of "May." ,  An official decision of the mnch-dis-  cussed question w!'.ether there is sucV  a condition of affairs in the Philippine.1-  as constitutes a state of war, has been  given iby the United States War Department in connection with a pending  claim. The Department holds that tlie  islands are still in n condition of war.  -���-^An-importfintastcpHn-'ias-'beeri'-taken-to���  ward the abolition of slavery in German East Africa oy the publication  of an imperial edict which permits even* slave to end his condition of servi-  tuae by the payment of a sum of money, the amount of -.vhich ls to toe determined by the authorities. Every slave  Is to be permitted to work for himself  two days in the week, or to use for his  own purposes the corresponding proceeds of his labor. This will give the  slaves an opportunity to accumulate  the purchase money. It is further decreed that? master;) shall not transfer  ownership without the consent of the  slave.  It Is understood that Seth Low,  shortly after he was elected mayor of  New York, sold a million and a half  dollars' worth of securities owned 'by  him ln various ���bf-.nlcs that are doing  business with tho city, so that he mighi  not in the least embarrass the city. He  is determined that the conduct of New  York city affairs nhnll not be liable to  the slightest suspicion so far as lies in  his power. Jinny cf the stocks sold had  been held by him for years, and were  gilt-edged securities. His friends say  that in disposing of those ���permanent  Investments Low made considerable ot  a sacrifice, as he can not find the equal  of some of them as income producers.  The strange story of the elopement of  an ordinary milch cow with a bull  moose comes from Lake Onawa, a  pretty sheet of water in the hills of  Piscataquis County, Maine, much frequented by sportsmen from the big  cities. The cow was the property of  Dr. A. T. Sanden of Kew York, whose  cottage is located on the shore of Onawa, and she was kept in a pasture enclosed by a rail -er.ee. A big moose  had been several tlino3 seen hanging  around the cottaj;e grounds late at  n'?;h't, displaying great boldness. One  night he came close up to where the  cow was, and the two seemed to be  good friends. Lata at night a tremendous crash was heard, and next morning the fence was a wreck and the cow  gone. Neither she no.- tlie moose has  been seen since.  K;s Thirteenth Question.  Little Clarence (with'a rising i'.-tfJee-  t'.on)���Pa?  :Mr.  Callipers (wwu-ny*�����*Uh?
