TWO  DOLLAES A YEAR.  KOOTENAY'S   -WONDERFUL   GROWTH.  As Evidenced by the Customs Returns for the  Fiscal Year' Ending June 30th.  The returns compiled by George Johnstone, collector I'or the "pork of Nelson,  illustrate as well as any set of figures can  the development which has taken place  in Southern Kootenay during the past  twelye months ending June 30th, which  comprise the fiscal year for the customs  department*. During that , period the  revenue of the port of Nelson has increased from $188,000 to $350,078, while tlie  mineral exports have made a relative  increase amounting in the .aggregate  value to $4,811,45!). These figures, it  should be remembered, do not cover tlie  entire mineral exports of the district, us  much of the ore went out via Revelstoke  and was credited to the port of Westminster through the output of Revelstoke.  Jn the tables which follow it will be  noticed that the value of the exports  more than trebles the value of the imports, the former being $1,500,598, against  a purely mineral export trade of  $-1,841,450.  The following are the customs returns  for the month ending June 30th:  Value of.  of this mine are not at all anxious to sell,  but will develop the property themselves,  and the chances are that it will be a shipping proposition at no distant date.

A comparison of the  several quarters of the fiscal year just  closed with the corresponding quarters of  the previous year can not be conveniently  made, but a comparison.between the last  quarters of the two years will illustrate  the development which has taken place.  For the last quarter of the fiscal year ending June 30,'185)0, the value of the mineral  exports was $107,007; for the corresponding quarter of the year just closed their  value was $1,309,184. It is not saying too  much for the district to say that when  these figures are compiled lor the fiscal  year ending June 30,1S9S, a corresponding  increase will be shown.

Quart//Creek Miner: Hall Siding has  taken quite a boom in the last few days.  Three weeks ago there was nothing there  bub a small section house, today the place  has the appearance of a little city. There  are three general merchandise stores,  three hotels and several .other buildings  under construction. The place has the  appearance of a busy cam]). The Fern  mine, located about four miles west of  town, has about eighty men employed.  The owners of this mine have built a good  wagon road from Hall Siding to the mine,  and will at once commence hauling lumber for the20-stamp mill to be built. There  will be 140,000 feet of lumber used by this  company for the erection of the stamp-  mill and various other buildings to be  erected for the accommodation of their  emplojrees. The most of the lumber is at  present at the station.  The Flying Dutchman, which is situated  close to the Fern, has ten men ab work.  The owners are ab presenb driving a tunnel, and are in about eighteen feet. The  last assay made on ore from this property  ran $175 in gold to the ton.   The owners  Slocan Shipments via Nakusp.  During the month of June there was  exported from the Slocan via Revelstoke  ���140 tons of ore of the value of $50,S34.75.  Of this amount the Slocan Star sent forward 320 tons, valued at $23,000.75; the  Enterprise 50 tons, valued at $5,498; and  the lieco SO tons, valued at $21,730.  It Will Embrace  Many Reforms Which Premier Turner Has Refused to Make.  A meeting'of the members of the legislature who oppose the Turner administration, was held in  the city  of Vancouver  on Saturday last for the purpose of forming a platform upon which to contest the  result, at the next   provincial  election.  All of the opposition members were present, save Macpherson of Vancouver, who  was in East Kootenay.   Charles Semlin  presided at the   meeting   aud   Colin   B.  Sword acted as  secretary.    The proposal  to contest the election upon straight party  lines���liberal and   conservative���was rejected as not i'n the interests of the opposition   nor   of the  province.     Among  other measures which were incorporated  into the  party's  platform,  were resolutions demanding a repeal of the mortgage  tax,- an   immediate   redistribution    bill  which would equalize the representation  throughout  the province, the   repeal of  the tax upon working miners in so far as  it oporates as a trade tax, and a uniform  railway policy which  would prevent the  party in power from showing favoritism  to political pets.  These resolutions cover the chief reforms sought by the members of the opposition. Their necessity has been fully  acknowledged by the members of the  Turner cabinet, but upon one pretext or  another they have repeatedly refused to  move in the matter of reform.  The resolutions adopted by the opposition members are to be submitted to a  convention to be held at a future date,  upon the call of Messrs.. Semlin and  Sword.  The opinion is general that there will  be few old faces in the legislature which  will succeed the present one. Ib is generally understood that there is a desire  on the part of two members of the cabinet to secure constituencies upon the  mainland. Attorney-General Eberts cannot hope to win another election in his  present constituency. It is generally regarded as the personal property of Harry  Helmcken, and he it is said will take it in  preference to taking a chance again in  Victoria., Donald Graham of Yale, expects to see a cabinet minister contesting  the division of Yale represented by himself iu -the present legislature, and is of  the opinion that if Eberts does not contest the seat, Forbes G. Vernon will make  another attempt to secure it'. ,  The representation of Victoria and  Vancouver will be very greatly changed.;  Victoria haviug secured all it can possibly'  hope for from the provincial treasury,  and the British Pacific being practically  a dead issue, the city is expected to return opponents to the present administration, as it did before the constituency  was bribed. The Vancouver representatives are not popular, and it is doubtful,  if either Macpherson or Williams will be  successful should they again seek the  suffrages of the elective of that city.  .... There Is Need for Redistribution.  The Williams directory company report  that the white population on the mainland of the province amounts to 78,850,  and that the population, of Vancouver  Island and the adjacent islands amounts  to 3S,500. The Williams Directory company is a Victoria concern, and while its  census can scarcely be accepted as absolutely correct, it is perhaps nearer the  mark than any former census. These  figures show that the white population  on the mainland is more than double that  of Arancouver Island, and in territorial  extent and commercial importance, the  disparity between the island and the.  mainland is even greater. These figures  illustrate the necessity for a new redistribution. The mainland is entitled to two-  thirds of the total representation in the  provincial legislature, instead of this it  has but 19 members against 14 for the  islaud. The directory company assert  that the white population on the mainland-has doubled within the past four  years.   Rumored Changes in Laurier's Cabinet.  The press dispatches from Ottawa announce that sit* Oliver Mowat will shortly-  resign the portfolio of minister of justice  in Laurier's cabinet and accept the office  of lieutenant-governor of Ontario. It is  also stated that Fielding will resign the  department of finance and be succeeded  by sir.Richard Cartwright. The government organs have not announced any  such changes, and it remains a matter for  conjecture as to their probability.  A Rather Empty Honor.  London, July 7.���The Manchester Guardian today says that the Duke of Devonshire's recent hint that striking proposals  are about to be launched by the secretary  nL_state for the colonies, Mr. Joseph  Chamberlain, refers to a scheme for representation of the colonies in the house  of lords. This scheme, the Guardian  adds, has already been approved at the  conferences held between Mr. Chamberlain and the colonial premiers.  Development Work Going1 On   in   a   District  ���  Which Will Be Heard From Later.  Charles    Benton    returned   this   week  frotn a trip into the St. Marys district, in  which he has minihginterests.   He reports  that considerable work is being done upon  properties along the middle branch of the  St.   Marys.     The  ledges   are   generally  strong, carrying low grade galena and  pyrites of copper.   He-has^one group of  three claims under bond, the ledge upon  which is 75 feet wide and can be traced  through the three claims.   Samples taken  from the ledge average S per cent copper,  with fairly good values in silver and gold:  About four miles from this property  work is being done on the Great Dane;  Whits Star and Fisher claims.   These are  owned    by  the   Sawyer   Brothers   and  Adolph La Pointe of Nelson.   They have  a showing of about 3 feet of clean galena and about 10 feet of concentrating  ore.    The clean galena assays from 25 to  50 ounces silver and from 3 to 0 per cent  in copper besides the lead values.   The  value of this and adjacent properties will  be largely affected by the proximity of  the Crow's Nest Pass railway.  Near the summit of the Sawyer's Pass,  the Pilot Bay Mining and Development  company is working about six men on its  property. These claims are about sixteen  miles from Pilot Bay, and very high  assays have been had from the ore, some  going as high as 400 ounces silver, and $00  in gold.  Not far from the Pilot Bay company's  group Captain Woods and his associates  are doing considerable work on the Black  Prince group, recently bonded by them'  from the Sawyer Brothers.  BR ADEN   AND   MATHEWS   WIN.  WHITE   GROUSE   MOUNTAIN.  The Location of the Ajax Fraction is Held to  be Valid by Justice Walkem.  The fight for the ground embraced in  the old Marlborough mineral claim, near  the Sandon townsite, was, concluded before justice Walkem   Wednesday morning.    When the Marlborough' claim  ran  out in September, there was a race on the  part of the owners of the Last Chance  mineral  claim   and  Messrs.   Dodds   and  Cummings to locate it.   Dodds and his  partner got on the ground first, and had  the claim located when John Regan ap-i  peared as the agent of E. H. Tomlinson, toi  locate the ground.   The claim lapsed at;  midnight, and on behalf of. Tomlinson...it.  was alleged that Dodds made his location  prior to 12 o'clock, and that his location  was therefore invalid. " ',  Messrs. Mathews and Braden afterwards  purchased the Dodds location, known as  the Ajax Fraction for $100. The Tomlinson location was called the Florida, and  some months ago Tomlinson*, as the owner  of the Florida Fraction, secured an injunction against the owners of the.Ajax Fraction to prevent them from working the  ground in dispute. This was later dissolved, and the Florida Fraction owners  became the plaintiffs iu a suit against the  owners of the Ajax Fraction to secure  title. -It was iu this shape that the dispute came before justice Walkem. The  case of the plaintiffs was that the defendants location was made at least ten minutes, before midnight. Justice Walkem  dismissed the action of E. H. Tomlinson  with costs. A counter action on the part  of Messrs. Mathews and Braden for damages and to have themselves declared the  owners of the ground as against the plaintiffs was partly successful. Justice Walkem declared them the owners, but refused  to allow anything for damages or costs.  A. Whealler of Kaslo, appeared for the  defendants and John Elliot for the  plaintiffs.

The Parrott Copper Mining company of  Butta has filed suits against the Boston  and Montana company and the Montana  Ore Purchasing con-many, in which F.  Aug. Heinze is largely interested, charging infringement of the patent process for  refining copper out of matte, a process  similar, it is said, to the Bessemeri/.ing  process with relation to iron and steel,  which has been used by the defendant  companies and the big Anaconda Copper  company ever since 1891. The Parrott  company asks for damages and a perpetual  restraining order, claiming to have purchased the invention from Pierre Manhes  of Lyons, France, the original inventor.  /Wants to Be More English.  London, July 5.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  the Dominion premier, today addressed a  meeting of members of the house of commons, known as the colonial party. Sir  Charles Dilkepresided. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who was cordially received, urged the  direct representation of the colonies in;  the imperial parliament, which ought to-  be he contended, a grand national council, or imperial federal parliament. In  the course of his address he said that if  Australia and South Africa were confederated like Canada it would greatly simplify the question.  Tarte Wants to Reform the Senate.  Montrkai., July ('.--The lion. Mr. Tarte  says in his paper. "La Pa trie." that the  attack upon the senate ��� must come from  Quebec, which province has always taken  the lead in the most important political  reforms ever seen in Canada. There  exists in all tlie provinces, Mr. Tarte declares, a feeling that there must be a  change in the senate, bub he does not  Tear to affirm that Quebec province is  better  prepared  than   all   the  others to  Several Companies Have Resumed Work Upon  Their Properties in This District.  Development work is going ahead steadily around White Grouse mountain this  summer, and while the conditions will  prevent anything in the way of large ore  shipments, there will no doubt be sufficient work done to put several of the  properties in shape to ship as soon as  transportation facilities offer.  The Ora Plata Mining company is working six meu on the company's property,  ��� located about a mile southeast of the  Storm King. They have, a good strong  .'-ledge, the ore in which is similar to that  found on the other properties in the district���a grey copper, with gold and silver  values.  President Wadsworth of the White  Grouse Mining company has let a contract  for a 100-foot tunnel on"' the Annie S.  This property is north of the Copper.  King. A 20-foot tunnel has been run in  upon tins ledge, disclosing a G-foot vein of  high grade copper ore. Assays from the'  Annie S. have given returns of from 100  to 300 ounces silver, $4 to $1S in gold,.and  an average of 10 per cent copper. The  company has a good site for a tunnel and  every facility for working the property.'  Much of the stock in this company is held'  by Nelson people.  The owners of the Jessie K and Morning mines will also let a contract for driv-'  ing a 100-foot tunnel on the Moruing.  These claims are one mile south of the  Storm King.  ��� Hector McRae will resume work upon  the Edwards and Brussels as soon as he  can get provisions and supplies up to the  rjroperties. Considerable work has been  done upon the property. It has a strong  ledge, which carries good values in copper,  silver and gold.  W. R. Ramsdall, the manager of the  Montana company, operating some of the  best claims in the district, has eight men  .at-'work driving a tunnel ou the Golden  King. The Golden King ledge shows on  the surface for a distance of over 100 feet,  varying in .width from 8 to 10 feet. Ramsdall will also run a tunnel in on the Silver  Tip. On the Storm King,'about which so  much was heard last summer, the vein is  4 feet wide at a depth of .70 feet; This  property was reported to'have'pinched'  'out. An open cub has beeu run on the Big  Four, owned by the same company, uncovering a good ledge.  A Mining Story From Colorado.  The Salt Lake Tribune publishes a dispatch from Aspen, Colorado, to the effect  that at a depth of 1000 feet a body of metallic ore that runs 24,000 ounces of silver  "to tlie tori has been struck in the Mollie  Gibson mine.   It is believed that the lost  oretihute has been recovered.   This dis-_  covery caused Mollie Gibson stock to ad-,  vance 20 cents a share.   The career of this  p'roperty has been a most remarkable one.  It was nearly ten years ago that the owners, among whom were Henry B. Gillespie! Byron E. Shear, and Dick Bolles, en-;  countered a few feet from the surface, native silver  in   abundance.     Nature had  placed it there in bars as pure' and free  from any impurities as any ever turned  from   a   mint.   The   discovery   was   the  most   sensational,   perhaps,   ever   made  on the silver circuit.   The first shipment  was made to Denver under armed guard.  The proceeds were enormous.   The shipment was repeated several times, when  the pocket was exhausted and the chute  apparently lost.   The owners   did some  prospecting but it was unsuccessful, and  the' property was tendered David Moffat  at $50,000.   His experts madeau examina-  tioirand turned Miss Mollie down.    Then  it was that means were provided for tlie  exploration  of lower levels.   The  shaft  had not gone far before the "pure quill"  was again encountered.   From that time  the stream of riches began to pour from  that source, and it was not long until the  stock,  which  had a few months  before  beeu changing hands at any price, was  selling at $11 a share.   Those who were  fortunate enough   to   hold ou   to   their  original possessions reaped an enormous  profit, and in less than three years pocketed $4,080,000.   The payment of dividends was suspended  two  years ago  last  January when the ore chute  was   lost.  Since  that time the company  has been,  searching for ib, and tliat it has been re-,  covered   will   be  a   signal   for   rejoicing  throughout Colorado.  enter upon a vigorous agitation. The  minister of public works- says 'that the  upper chamber, as at,present constituted,  is a menace to popular liberty.   ..  OVER   $25,000   PER   DAY.'  Southern Kootenay is Exporting Ore at an  Even Grater Rate than This.  Very heavy shipments of ore' from the  Slocan were made during the past week,  amounting in the aggregate to over $100,-  000, which with the shipmerits from Trail  Creek', Nelsou and Ainsworth divisions,  brought the value of the exports for the  week up to $178,710. The customs returns  of the port of Nelson for the month of  June give the value of the mineral exports  at $4S3,885, in'"addition to which"$50,835  worth or Slocan ore was exported via  Revelstoke. These figures added together  give the mineral exports ol the district  for June at $534,720. The following were  the shipments for the present week:  ROUGH   ON   REGAN.  BULLION  AND   MATTE.

The Athabasca mine will make another  ���shipment of 40 tons of high grade ore to  the Hall  mines smelter  this  week.    The  first 20 tons  of this shipment will yield  , over $100 in gold to the ton.   The control  in this property was secured by the B. C.  Gold Fields Company iu May, since which  time' systematic development  work has  been carried on under the superintendence  of Mr. Wing. There are at present 25 men  working upon the  property.    It is being  worked   principally   through   a   150-foot  .tunnel, which  gives a depth of about 00.  feefc.    The ledge lies at an angle of about  45 degrees and averages about 20 inches  in width, from 12 to Hi inches of which is  shipping ore.    Some 75 feet in from the  mouth of the tunnel a winze is beingsunk  upon a fine showing of ore and a drift is  also being run from the present level.; A  nice outcrop of ore was  recently discovered about 500 feet from the showing upon  which the first work was undertaken.   A  shaft is being sunk upon it and some very  good  looking rock  is  being   taken   out.  Although'the property will make several  shipments during the next few months  the aim of the company will be to develop  the property rather than  take out ore,  and with this end   in view the  working  force at the mine will be increased as soon  as the opportunity offers.  Donald to Lose the Shops.  While at Golden, last,week, General  Manager Why te, of the C. P. R., was interviewed, and stated that it had been  found necessary for the better working  of the Rocky Mountain section between  Golden and Laggan to make Golden the  divisional point, and to establish workshops there. Consequently the workshops will be removed from Donald, part  going to Revelstoke, and the remainder  to Golden. The workshops to be established at Golden will be fully equipped to  deal with the mountain traffic, and will  be supplied with a plant for repairing  and fitting the^mogul and. consolidated  engines. Car l'epairing shops will also be  built; Golden is also the most convenient  point for making up trains, and extensive  tracks will be laid down for this uurppse.  It is also understood that the.C.

London', July 0.���The Hon. Edward  Blake has withdrawn from the committee  investigating the British South Africa  company's administration and the Jamie-  son raid, because of its failure to report  Mr. B. F.

Justice Walkem   Unwarrantably Severe In  a  Case of Carelessness.     ��� ���  An unpleasant feature'of the  miiiing  suit before justice Walkem on Wednesday  was,the courts castigation of Jphn Regan,  one of the most favorably known miners  of   the  Slocaii.   Regan's  difficulty   was  brought about by carelessness iu swearing to,.an affidavit .drawn by a lawyer.  The circumstances of the case were these.  On the night upon which the Marlborough  mineral claim ran out Regan was iu the  ollice of the Last Chance, mine, and wishing to have  the   correct   time,, he telephoned to a man iu Sandon to get the C.J  P. R.  time from the railway depot and  telephone same back to him.   The man to  whom he telephoned leftthe instrument  and ina few minutes telephoned a 'time'  to a minute.    Regan supposed, that the-  time had been  taken from the railwtiy  company's office, and upon the strength '  of this belief, he made an affidavit to the '  effect that he had.telephoned  the Canadian   Pacific Racific railway depot and  secured   corrected time.   After the affidavit  was  made it transpired that tlie'  time had been secured ab a jewelry store  and not at the railway depot.  It will readily be seeu that Regan was  guilty of carelessness-in making the affidavit which he did. People should be  very careful to be correct in their affidavits. .For his. carelessness Regan might  fittingly have been lectured by'the court,  but in the opinion of Thr Tri'ijunm;, there  was no occasion for justice Walkern's  talking about perjury and such. On account of the inaccuracies in Regan's affidavit���false statements as justice Walkem  termed them���the whole.of Regan's evidence in tlie case was rejected. Listeners  in the court who did not know Began,  might well take him for a blackleg after  justice Walkem's remarks. It will no  doubt come as a surprise to justice Walkem to know that Jack Regan i�� regarded  asoneof thestraightestmenin West Kootenay, and it is no reflection upon justice  Walkem to say that most of the people of  West Kootenay would take Jack Regan's  word as quickly as they would that of  justice Walkem.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  Charles E. Perry, the Cauadian Pacific  Railway Company's engineer,iu charge of  .the construction of the .Slocan river road,  was iu Nelson today, lie says that there'  are between 800 and 000 men on the work  between Slocan City and'Slocan Junction.  The contractors who have the work iu'  hand are familiar with railway construction and will push the workasfastasany set  of men could. Eugineer ' Perry expects  that they will have grading done before  the time fixed in their contracts and that  the road will be in operation in November.  A number of people witnessed the mag-  uiscqpe entertainment in the lire hall last  evening. The magniscope is a new name  for the bioscope, the later name not being  very popular in Nelson since the visit of  the last set of fakirs. Those who saw last  evening's^exhibition express themselves  as well pleased. The show will be repeated in the fire hall this evening.  The Cauadian Pacific company's new  steamer on Slocan lake is doing a heavy  business. The railway company has completed the organization of its offices at  Rosebery, New' Denver, Silverton and  Slocan City, and operators and freight  clerks are now stationed at each point: -  The corporation of the/City of Nelson  advertises this week for'tenders for the  performance of the necessary work in  connection with the proposed Water and  sewerage systems for the city. Tenders  are also called for the supplying of the  necessary material. The advertisements  appear in.this issue. ''  The police' have so far been unable to  locate the burglars who broke into F.  Irvine & Company's store last'week, and  got away with $500 worth of goods. It is  now thought that they got across the  liue with their booty.  More Annoyance for the Peoplo of Nelson.  The citizens of Nelson evidently did nob  escape from the annoyance incidental to  the attentions of the provincial board of  health when they secured incorporation.  The board held a meeting in Victoria on  Tuesday. Among other things the hoard  .-recommended the appointment of Dr. J.  ��� McLean'as health 'officer, for the district  of-Hastings townsite, Dr. Fagan, of Westminster, for the districts east ot Hastings  iii Westminster district, and Dr. 11.

SATURDAY MORNING JULY 10. .1897  The city council on Wednesday evening  entered a formal protest against the appointment by the provincial government  of Edward Albert Crease as police magistrate, and of William Alexander Macdonald as member of the licensing board and  police commissioner.   It is not to be supposed that the matter will end with the  protest.* The Turner cabinet by its ap-.  pointments has given the municipality a  slap in the face, and usurped the.f unctions  of municipal government.   The people of  Nelson   will   not  forget   this   indignity.  They can be counted upon to back the  council up in any fight which it may see  fit to inaugurate.   The effect of these appointments will be that the citizens of  Nelson will practically have no voice in  the regulation of the liquor business nor  of  the police service  of the city.   The  board of licensing and police commissioners is made up of  three   members,  the  mayor   being  the presiding   officer,   the  police magistrate of the city a second, and  a commissioner appointed by the government a third.   Just what excuse the government has for any interference whatever, it is difficult to imagine, but as the  majority of such commissioners are generally the choice of the people, the complaints against government, interference  have not been strong enough to secure redress.   In every instance in the past when  a municipality,was unanimous in its,choice  for a police magistrate, the government  - has recouizedthe. council, and the magistrate upon appointment, together with  the mayor has formed a majority of the  board.   A departure was made from this  rule in the case of Nelson, and the nominee of the corporation was slighted to  make a place for Edward Albert Crease, a  tVictoria lawyer with a family pull.   The  police magistrate with the other nominee,  will   constitute   the  dominant influence  upon the board.   They will regulate the  liquor business, saying  who shall have  licenses  and who shall not.   They will  regulate the police force, appointing men  and fixing salaries, and the only privilege  which the people and corporation of the  City of Nelson will have will be the paying of salaries fixed by these government  nominees. This latest turn of events illus-  taates rather well what The Tribune has  contended for years���that premier Turner's   cabinet is made up   of   little men,  capable of nothing save little things.   It  is a fortuate thing for British Columbia  that the life of its petty government is  short.    If its appointees in Nelson do not  precede it, they will go with ib in 1898.  that railway time was the standard and  legal time of the province, the contention  was raised by the plaintifis that the defendants had staked a mineral claim 10  minutes before it was legally vacated.' In  this case, however, both parties were proceeding upon the same assumption with  respect to time, but had either of the parties raised the question of observation  time in the absence of a statute to the  contrary, a nice complication would have  arisen. Other provinces in the Dominion  have fixed a uniform time by statute, and  the legislature of British Columbia; to  avoid probable complications, should do  the same!   Dr. S. D. Pope, superintendent of the  department of education, has notified the  Nelson board of school trustees that owing to the failure to elect a trustee in the  place of G. R. Robson, the retiring secretary of the board, it will be necessary to  call another meeting.for that purpose,  giving ten days notice of the same. In  pursuance of these instructions it is likely  that the meeting for the election of the  third trustee will be held on Saturday  next, July 17th. It is very much to be regretted that the ratepayers of the city  evince so little interest in school affairs.  If the school is not conducted to suit their  views, they are not slow to make a kick,  but when the opportunity is offered them  to select a capable man as school trustee,  they allow the election to go by default.  It,is rather inconsistent on the part of  the people of Nelson to complain of the  educational department's neglect of.the  Nelson school, when they themselves do  not take sufficient interest to elect a trustee to fill a vacancy on the board. The  importance of having good men on the  board was manifested last year, when the  board got into a tangle with the department over government allowances for  necessary expenditures. With the growth  of the city more important issues will  arise, aud the people of Nelson owe it to  themselves to see that a capable man is  elected on Saturday next, who will consider the wants of.the school first.  It is about time that the city council  put a stop to the Salvation Army services  on the public streets. Every evening  Baker street is blocked by a crowd listening to the' army's open air service, and  travel is brought to a complete standstill.  The Salvation Army, with its band and  its vocalists, has become a very trying  nuisance, and should be obliged to confine  its operations to the army barracks.  ..The Le Roi Mining Company paid another dividend of. $25,000 on Tuesday.  This brings the total Le Roi dividends up  to $450,000, nearly all of which was divided among residents of Spokane. This  Le. Roi company is the same company  that is making a kick about the proposed  export duty upon ore. Its greed is so  great that it begrudges Canada the advantage of having Canadian ores treated  in Canada.

McFoft &" McClelland  BLA,CKSMITHING AND  EXPERJ HORSESHOEING  Wagon  Repairing  Promptly Attended to  by a First-Class Wheelwright  Special attention given to all Kinds of repairing  and custom worl^ from outside points  THI3 remarks of justice Walkem in! the  mining  suit  on   Wednesday,  upon  'the-'  question   of   standard time,   make very  plain the necessity for the fixing of time  within the province by statute. For years  it has been the custom to regard the Canadian   Pacific   Railway   company's time  for the Pacific division as the standard  time  in this province.   The legislature,  however, has never made it so by statute,  and for this reason there is no time save  observation   time which   can legally  be  recognized by the courts.    In the mining  districts, where the title to valuable mining property may altogether depend upon  a few minutes' time, the gravity of this  omission  to fix time by statute may be  readily.recognized.   In the different portions of the   province observation time  may  vary   25   minutes one way or the  other from  the Pacific time arbitrarily  fixed by the railway company. The effect  of this can be appreciated  in just such a  case as that before justice Walkem on  Wednesday, when, upon the assumption  The attempt of P. Aug. Heinze's friends  in Victoria, to work up an indignation  meeting in the railway speculators interest, turned out to be something of a frost.  How premier Turner and  his   political  friends had  the hardihood to champion  Heinze's cause is difficult to understand.  When premier Turner introduced Heinze  to the people of this province, in connection with the Columbia & Western railway, he laid special emphasis upon the  circumstance that Heinze differed from all  other railway promoters in that he was  not seeking government assistance of any  kind,    but    merely    wished  a   skeleton  charter with power to build his railway.  When this was secured premier Turner  forced the Columbia Ac Western laud subsidy bill through the house, giving Heinze  20,000 acres of land for each mile of railway, and later gave him the option of  taking $4000 per mile for 100 miles of the  road, instead of the land subsidy.   After  this it transpired that the man who was  goinc fr> iv-nd a railway without any gov-  ernimiii. ,������  -i-tance whatever, was not iu  a position to build the road after receiving such material assistance.   After the  discreditable part which he and his colleagues played in connection with granting provincial assistance to this railway  one   would think   that   premier Turner  "Would be slow to condemn anyone..   Had  Heinze received no aid whatever, he would  have been just where premier Turner said  he wished to be, when he first commenced  to build railways with his jaw.  From the tone of the comments in the  provincial press it is evident that Hon. D.  W. Higgins has got from the frying pan  into the fire. The government party consider themselves well rid of him, and the  opposition press thiuk his conversion  came too late. The only thing left for  Mr. Higgins is to form a third party with  Dr. Walken���that is if the Nanaimo doctor don't object.  MUSIC LESSONS  SHOP:    Cor. Baker an,d Hall Sts. flelson.

THE    COUNCIL   PROTESTS  Against the Appointment'of Crease as Magistrate and Macdonald as Commissioner.  Aldermen Dow and Fletcher��were the  only absentees   at  the  twelfth   regular  meeting of the city council, which was  held iu the Fire hall Wednesday evening.  The first business that came before the  council was introduced by a couple of telegrams from the provincial secretary notifying the  council  that   Edward Albert  Crease   had   been appointed magistrate,  and that William Alexander Macdonald  had beeu  appointed   a   member   of   the  licensing board and police commissioner.  When the telegrams were read mayor  Houston expressed himself strongly upon  the injustice shown by the government in  taking the control of the liquor business  and police affairs out of the hands of the  municipality.   He expressed  his conviction that the appointments were intended  1 as a direct slap in the face for the municipal government of Nelson and would be  resented by the people as a whole.  Alderman Malone moved, seconded by  alderman Gilker, "That the council pro-  , tests against the appointment of Edward  Albert Crease to the office of police magistrate, and of William Alexander Macdonald to the office of member of the police  board and member of the license board,  and that this protest be drafted, signed  and sent to premier Turner." This was  carried unanimously.  On motion of alderman Gilker, sec-,  onded by alderman Hillyer, it was resolved that the mayor accept time checks'  issued by Thomas Holliday, contractor for  the city work, up to the amount of $100,  as per estimate of the city engineer.  Carried.  The following accounts were ordered  paid: John A. Turner & Co., $110.01;  British Columbia Gazette, $03.25;,Tribune  Publishing Company, $139.80; Thomas W.  Gray, $831.25; Charles E. Sealey, salary,  $75; John Hamilton, $12.50; Seneca G.  Ketchum, $58.05; G. S. Robinson, $21.35;  Charles B. Wolvertou, $10; Joseph Tall-  mire, $3; James Harvey, $5 ; Lewis Johnson. $5; F. Rowe, $5.05; Allan Rhodes,  $2.50; Bruso Fern. $10.00; John Cowan,  $0 ; N. Anderberg, $10.00; E. Burns, $91.80.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Malone, it was resolved that the mayor call for tenders for  the right to take rock from Josephine  street bluff for the month of July, for the  month of August and for. the month of  September, separate tenders for each  mouth. The tender to be aecompauied  by a certified check for amount of tender.  The mayor to have authority to grant  permit to the highest bidder. This resolution was carried, as it was considered  necessary in view of the quarrels among  the different contractors over the stone  from the bluff.  The three sets of plans for a water and  sewerage system for the city received  considerable attention, but none of them  were such as the council considered could  be adopted in their entirety. On motion  of alderman Hillyer, seconded by alderman Malone, it was "Resol ved, that as none  of the plans proposed were such as to be  followed in their entirety, therefore, that  each competitor be paid the sum of $200  for the plans submitted, the city reserving the right to follow the part of each  plan most suitable for the city."

What His Good Will Would Have Cost  the "Dominion'*! Exchequer.  When the. people of British Columbia  understand the inner workings of the  Columbia & Western Railway deal, they  will not be so very sorry that the promoters of the scheme failed to secure aid  from the federal government. If one-half  of what the Toronto Telegram says concerning the deal be true, the province  will have no difficulty in securing anyone  to take Heinze's place in the r deal. ���..The  Telegram says:  "The   Heinze railway   scheme,  which  failed to pass the committee in the house  the other day, seems to have been one of  rather   gigantic   proportions.    The   Dominion subsidy for 200 miles was $10,000  per mile, which equals about two millions .-  of   dollars.   The   provincial government  subsidy for the first 100 miles was $-1000  per mile, equal to $-100,000.   A large acreage of land was to be given as a bonus for  the other hundred miles.    It appears that  after the road.was finished it was to be  taken over by the C. P. R., and that the  'implied understanding'spoken of in the  committee really meant that the C. P. R.  was'to give $22,000 per mile in cash for  the road after ic was completed, or as an  alternative, the builders of the road were  willing  to  take  the  C. P. R.'s guarantee  for their bonds, and sell out for $15,000 in  cash per mile for 200 miles.   This would  be   three   million  dollars,  and  with  the  $2,000,000 from   the   Dominion, and   the  provincial subsidy of $-100,000, would make  a total of $5,';I00,000.   It is stated that the  rake-off in the  transaction  would have  been betw.eeu two and a half and three  millions,   but   putting    the   amount  at  $1,500,000, it would be quite a neat sum to  divide among the promoters.   It is understood that two of the principals wanted  OS per cent of the rake-off, but that another principal interested would notagree  to this proportion."  is a practical plumber himself or not, will not permit or  allow any such work to bo done by himself or in connection with the business except by such' registered  plumbers, and that he will not violate any of tlio terms,  and conditions,' rules and regulations contained in this  by-law, or in any other by-law which shall come into force  from time to time in the City of Nelson respecting  plumbing, drainage, sanitary, matters' and 'water works  within tlie said city.    , ���'/���<���"/������'-���:        ���' --';'���  8.

We have had the pleasure of looking over the New  Kinpire Typewriter, a Canadian made machine, and find  it a marvel of simplicity through which the makers claim  durability. The types strike direct, moving only two  inches on a steol bed, giving speed and great manifolding  power. Each type at time of writing is locked, ensuring  perfect alignment. The writing is visible doing away  with the lifting of a heavy carriage; the touch is easy,  the response quick and the type do not appear to Jock,  Ruling vertical and horizontal may be done on it and the  pricc'is less than half that of other standard machines.  So confident are tho makers of the success of their machine they will refund the money of any unsatisfied purchaser after a ten days' trial. The Thomson Stationery  Company of Vancouver and Nelson are to be congratu- >  lated on securing the general agency for B. C. The machines seem to us to be at the top in merit and bottom in  price.

Silas IT. Cross was before justice Bigelow Monday morning on a charge of using  abusive and obscene language on the  street-s. The court observed that the  city could not keep the streets free from  mud in wet weather, but it could tind  would keep them free from drunken still's.  He assessed Cross $25.  Captain John Campbell, of the steamer  Ainsworth, is wearing a generous smile at  present: over the business which the Ainsworth has picked up on the Kaslo and  Bonner's Ferry route. Since the initial  trip of the steamer the business lias steadily grown, and now each round trip nets  the steamer substantial profits. Captain  Campbell's only regret in connection with  the now venture is that he did not put  the Ainsworth on the route several'weeks  earlier than he did.  George W. Brown of Portland, Oregon,  has taken a five years' lease ou the 50-i'oot  Baker street lot, betsveen Des Brisay and  Dover's stores, and has commenced the  erection of a three-story frame building.  The first floor will be devoted to a couple  of stores and .the second aud third floors  to offices aud room's., T. II. Gil'fin, the  owner'of the property, will receive $75  per month ground rent.  XV'. L. McLaughlin was in Nelson this  week i'or the purpose of inducing the government to build six miles of trail up  Ham ill creek from Kootenay lake. He is  . a joint owner in the claims comprising  the McLaughlin and Clinton group on  Hamill creek, and is convinced that the  district is sufficiently promising to -warrant the expenditure necessary i'or the  ��� six-miles of trail asked for. McLaughlin  says that the government trail from Columbia to Kootenay lake was never completed to Ivootenay lake, but that it was  stopped at a point upon Hamill creek  about six miles from the lake. The completion of this trail to the lake would suit  him down to the ground, but the government does not take very kindly to the  proposition.  On Tuesday George A. Bigelow fined L.  O'Neill $5, with the option of 30 days' imprisonment at hard labor for indecent exposure.   O'Neill paid the fiue.  IT. G. Neelands has commenced work on  a two-story frame building on the north  side of Baker, street, west of the bridge.  The building will have a 25-foot frontage  iintl will be plastered throughout.  Mr. Shields, of Toronto, who has been  awarded the contract for the delivery of  mails in Lilloooet and Cariboo districts,  has purchased the stock and plant of the  British Columbia Express company. The  new contractor willn carry on business  under the same st3'le.  J. G. Kellett, engineer for the West  Kootenay Light and Power company, says  that work will be commenced by the company next week. The company considered  the tenders received for the rock work  upon the site as too high aud will undertake the work itself by day's labor. The  Cauadian General Electric company, represented by Frank Darling, secured the  contract for the electrical machinery, and  the Victor Turbine company of Dayton,  Ohio, secured the contract for the water  wheels.  Dr. A. Forin of Rossland has joined Dr.  D. La Ban in his extensive practice in this  city. The style of the firm name will be  Li Ban & Forin. Dr. Forin is a brother  of Judge Forin of this city, and has had  an extensive experience iu medicine.  J. Fred Hume and John A.

On Thursday afternoon, to the wife of  captain Ilayward, there was born a  daughter.  Dr. La Ban, medical officer i'or the lower  half of the Slocan river road, was down  on the raihvay grade on Tuesday. The  new branch leaves the C. Ac K. railway at  Ward's Crossing, which is now known as  Slocan Junction. There are about -100  men on the lower end of the work. Dr.  La Ban's territory covers the first sixteen  miles. All men requiring hospital attendance will be treated iu the private hospital at Nelson.  W. F. Teetzel & Co. have installed a  handsome soda water fountain in the best  appointed drug store in Kootenay.  A. W. Macdonald, Q.

An  application was made for tlie use of the  fire hall for this purpose, but the use of  the hall was refused as it would conflict  with civic officials in .the discharge of  their duty.  The raffle for the yacht Myth resulted  in four tie throws of IS. Those throwing  this number were J. IT. Matheson, IT. B.  Perks, M. Monaghan and Peter Dessel.  The tie has not been thrown off, as au  arrangement has been made for the purchase of the Monaghan and Dessel interests by J. K. Iteid aud J. IT. Matheson.  The Aaron's Rod Mining compauy will  commence work on the O. R. T. claim,  located near the Poorman, uext week.

The firm  is at present engaged upon work for the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway company and the Hall Mines. The firm has  just as good a plant for the repairing of  raihvay locomotives as is afforded by  Spokane.  Saturday afternoon mayor Houston  notified the proprietors of three saloons'  that as they had no license to sell liquor,  they would have to close their saloons until the board of licensing commissioners  . met. Those notified were Isaac Holden aud  Clements Ac Martin on Baker street, and  Lund Ac Mallette on Vernon street. All  obeyed the summons and closed Saturday  evening.  Messrs. Traves and Jensen have leased  the lot in the creek bottom, on the corner  of Baker and Ward streets, from Harold  Selous. They will erect a two story frame  building with basement, work upon which  is now well under way.  Messrs. Donley and Simpson have commenced work upon a hotel at the corner  of Vernon and Hall streets. It will be a  frame affair.  Dave MacBeath has taken a contract  from the Slocan City Townsite Company  i'or tho e-rnd-iig of Arthur and Harold  strei*1-.  G. Ji. Martin, chief commissioner of  lands and works, left Victoria on Thursday for Kamloops, from which point he  will make a'trip to this city and other  Kootenay points.  The Canadian Pacilic Railway Company's land department reports a good  demand for Nelson real estate. The present has been the best year in the history  of the townsite. This has had a tendency  to stiffen prices in some localities. Building rebates have been declared off iu respect to all Baker street property.  Johu Noel, who has the contract for  building the C. ct K. line from the C. &K.  depot to the eastern city limit, expects to  have employment for about 50 men next  week.  Judge Forin last week purchased twelve  lots in hlock 22, and will build a residence  upon the same. A rock bluff takes iu the  greater part'of this block, and for this  reason the railway company reduced the  price to $150 per lot. Six other lots were  sold in the same block last week.  The Hall Mines reverberatory is now  working up a stock of white metal from  the blast furnace matte,  will be thus employed for  or three weeks, after which it will work  the white metal into copper bullion. A  much better grade of ore i.s now being received   from  the   mine.   The  smelter  is  rather close up on the ore supply, but the  ore is coming down steadily.  XV. J. Goepel, acting government agent,  while in Ymir this week announced that  work would be commenced upon the  wagon road up Wild Horse creek within  ten days. This road will serve the Ymir  and Elise properties as well as scores of  prospects upon which development work  is being done.  F. C. GAMBLE, J. P.  M. IllM. C. K.       M. Can. Sue. C. IC.
