Reason for Such Action.  The geueral agents of one or two of the  insurance companies that have risks in  this district have notified their local  agents that they cannot accept further  risks.   It appears this action is the result  of a report made by a special agent. As  far as Nelson is concerned, many of the  merchants declare that most of the policies written are so one-sided that insurance is worthless. There may be some  truth in this contention, but there is more  in the statement, that Nelson has been an  exceptionally good town for the insurance  companies. The fire losses in the town  have not aggregated $10,000. The buildings are not huddled together on one  street; they are generally owned by the  men who live or do business in them ; they  are fairly well protected with hydrants  aud Water tanks; they Avill bo further  protected by fire limits; and when the  proposed system of water works is completed, there will be few safer towns in  British Columbia.  The Upper Duncan District.  Reports from the upper Duncan river  are to the effect that the rains in the  lower levels and snow on the hills have  materially interfered with the work of  prospectors. James M. Anderson, iu  charge of the expedition of the Gold Hills  Exploration 6c Development Company,  came down on Monday. He says that the  little tug Idaho is now running between  Duncan City and the Hall creek trail, and  is found of great service in conveying  freight. Hall creek has been staked almost from mouth to source by prospectors  coming from Trout lake as well as from  Kootenay lake. Good locations have been  made on Glacier, Hamill, and East creeks,  and some fine samples of ore taken out. ���  Development work is also being done at  several points tributary to the upper  Duncan. The weekly trips of the Koka-  nee to Argenta, and the weekly trips of  the Idaho, greatly facilitate the labors  of those going into the country: There is  now a good pack train between Argenta  and Duncan City, so that it is possible to  place freight leaving Kaslo.on Monday  afternoon, at the HalJ^cseek trail on  Wednesday morning. r  ANOTHER   JAIL   ESCAPE.  A Murderer and a Thief Gain Liberty Through  Carelessness.  There    must, be  something   radically  wrong in the management of the provincial lockup at Nelson, or there would not  be so many escapes from, it.   The'latest  escape is one that the people of the^wnqr,  claim could only have happened through  carelessness.   The lockup is the office and  residence of tho provincial constablea-onj'  duty.   A pistol  belonging to one olj  constables had  been missing for sev  days, but no search was made for it.   It  is now claimed that one of the prisoners���  the boy who was arrested  three weeks  ago for stealing cigars from   Russell  6c  Thur man's���secured      the    pistol      and  secreted it in the water closet, afterwards  informing another prisoner where it could  be fouud.   This   prisoner was   awaiting  trial on the charge of murder, he having  been arrested at Nelson last fall for firing  the shot that   killed S. M.  Woods,  the  blacksmith.     Thursday evening he  got  permission to go to the water closet, and  on his return pulled  the pistol  on   the  constable in charge, making him throw  up his hands and then enter the cell which  he (the prisoner) had  occupied.   He was  then "touched"  for all  the money in his  pockets, and told to   keep   quiet.    The  prisoner took the keys and locked two or  three other prisoners charged with petty  offences in cells, opened the cell in which  the cigar thief was confined, wentthrough  the   drawer   in   the    official    table    or  desk,  secured  another  pistol, and coolly  walked out through the front door.    It is  also   claimed   that    the   constable    was  warned not to make au outcry if he valued  his life.  The escaped prisoners were arrested  under the- names of .James AVoods and  JamesMcDonald. Theformer is described  as 5 feet 7A- inches high, reddish hair and  mustache," no beard, gray eyes, full forehead, light complexion, little finger of the  -right hand broken at the end joint and  turns down. He is 25 years old. One  night last October he broke into a blacksmith shop in Nelson, and in doing so  aroused the owner, who slept up-stairs.  The blacksmith got up, went down stairs,  words passed, a shot was fired, and two  days afterwards the blacksmith was dead.  The prisoner was captured when Avalking  along the track of the Columbia & Kootenay railway, about 20 miles from Nelson.  He was brought back and identified by  the blacksmith, and after a hearing be-  'fore stipendiary magistrate Fitzstubbs  was sent to Kamloops for safe keeping,  until a sitting of the assize court'at Nelson, lie was brought back to Nelson for  trial on Wednesday last.  Building Operations.  A number of new buildings were commenced in Nelson this week. The largest,  the Hotel Hume, will be the finest hotel  building in Kootenay. Body & Bragg  secured the contract for the foundation  walls against four other bidders. J. H.  Bowes is building three cottages at the  corner of Hall and Carbonate streets.  Moore & Woods have the contract. Simpson & Donley have purchased two lots at  the corner of Vernon and Hall streets,  and are preparing to build au hotel, 50  feet frontage on Vernon, three stories  high. Contractor Burns has begun lay-  iug the foundation of the Mara-Barnard  brick block. The foundation is in for a  residence on Carbonate street, east of  Squire's mansion.  Some People are Lucky.  Mining men from the Slocan say that  the Payne is now the great mine of that  section. The Payne was the first location  made in the Slocan country, and its discoverers knew so little regarding the  ledge that they located the claim across  it instead of along it. Steve Bailey acquired the ground soon afterwards,  worked it ou and off for five years, and  sold out last fall, after a legal squabble, to  his partners for, it is said, $100,000. The  present owners are A. W. McCune of Salt  Lake, W. L. Hoge of Butte, aud Scott McDonald of Spokane. Rumor has five million dollars worth of ore in sight. Such  is luck in mining.  The Subscription List is Growing.  Last week the canvassing committee reported   subscriptions  amounting   to $1,-  008.50.     This   week    the    following   additional subscriptions were obtained:  T W Gray!...' ��10 00  Mrs Casey '  5 00  Turner, Ueeton & Co. 25 00  lvootenay Hotel  20 00  Spenecr & Ball  5 00  Hillyer & I.ott  15 01)  llli/cl C.'iiywood     5 00  Katie Murray  3 00  STRIKE   NEAR   THE   POORMAN.

Ernest Nulty of Rossland has deeded a  one-sixth interest each to John C. Price  and Andrew Burgess in the mineral claim  Lucky Lad, situate on Sixteen Mile  creek, aud to S. P. Collensworth the other  two-thirds of the .same claim.  A Four-foot Ledge of Free Milling Quartz is  Uncovered on the Granite.  A hjg strike was made on the Granite on  Saturday which gives asubstantiarvalue  to the Granite and also to the Poorman  group. The Granite is a southerly extension of the White claim of the Poorman  group, and is owned by J. P. Swedberg  and J. W. Johnson. Por several weeks  they have been ground-sluicing along the  end line of the White claim, and on Saturday they uncovered a 4-foot ledge of  solid free milling quartz. Considerable  work was done upon this ledge on the  White. A tunnel was run in upon it for  about 125 feet. , The ledge, however, was  '-found to be very much broken up, and in  running 125 feet not more than 35 feet  depth was obtained. In this J25 feet be-  tw.j@en_400 and 500 tons of ore were taken  ere this ledge has been uncovered  Granite is 800 or 900 feet distant  rom the point at which the work was  done on the White, so that the White  will catch a large slice of the new find.  A. L. Davenport of the Poorman says he  never saw a prettier showing in the  country than this new find. The ledge is  well an place and the rock will mill  $20 to the ton, which is Inuch better tha'n  the returns received from the ore from  the Poorman.  The Granite claim has had an eventful  history. It was located in 1S80 by a man  named Scrafford on the strength of the  showing on the White. Scrafford went out  to the Coeur d'Alenes, Idaho, for the purpose of raising a stake to work the"  property, and was killed before he was  ready to return. His son, at present  employed as foreman in one of the  Rossland mines, kept tip the assessment  work on the claim for a couple of years  and then allowed it to run out. It was  then restaked by Swedberg, who had  charge of the work upon the White. He  came as close to the White as he could in  his ground-sluicing, and his find of  Saturday is a fitting reward for the  perseverance he has shown in working  the claim.  Those who have seen the find pronounce  it the most important one that has been  made near Nelson for years. It will  give a greatly increased value to the  Poorman company's stock, and will no  doubt alter that company's plans for  development.  MATTE   AND   ORE   SHIPMENTS.  West Kootenay's Mines and- Smeltors Are  Steady Producers.

The Revelstoke Mail of the 19th gives  the following particulars of the accident  on the Canadian Pacific by which five  men were killed: "One of the most awful  catastrophes occurring on the main line  of the Canadian Pacific railway for many  years, happened Tuesday afternoon at the  eastern end of the rock tunnel, about two  miles east of Illecillewaet. Alex McGregor,  bridge.foreman, was engaged in repairing  the tunnel and replacing timbers with a  crew of ten men when a large section of it  collapsed, burying six of the men. Five  were killed outright and one escaped with  slight injury. McGregor, too, had a narrow escape for his life, as he was just getting out of the tunnel when it fell, and so  near was he to the mass that he picked out  one of the men. The five victims were  Albert Johnson, ;George Phillips, A.  Arvidson, Nels Olsen, and George Cum-  mings. The coroner's jury brought in a  verdict that the accident was caused by  defective timbers in the approach to the  tunnel, and that the blame attaches to  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company."  Convicted One out of Three.  A sitting of the assize court commenced  at    Nelson    on    Thursday,   Mr.   Justice  Walkem presiding. The crown was represented by A. G. Smith, deputy attorney-  general. The opening address of. Mr.  Justice Walkem was sensible and forcible.  The first cause heard was that of a woman  named Clayton of Rossland for procuring.  She was found not guilty, and was discharged with a lecture, as were the complainants. The next cause was that of it  man named Manson of Rossland, charged  with kicking a man to death. He also  was found hot guilty. Goggin of Rossland  got nine months at hard labor for hitting  another man over the head with a poker.  There are several other cases yet to be  heard.   Enough for Pin Money.  The Le Roi mine at Rossland is at least  producing enough ore to keep the wives  of its owners in pin money. A dividend  of $25,000 has been declared for June,  which makes a total of $425,000 thus paid.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.'  Three Meetings Held This Week and Important  Business Transacted.,  The city council held three sessions this  week.. On Monday night there were present: Mayor Houston, and aldermen Hillyer, Malone, and Teetzel. The mayor reported securingBurns 6c Co.'s old slaughter  house corral, at the foot of Victoria street,  for a city pound.

The Profits of Mining.  The mining companies of Butte, Montana, have made reports of net proceeds  for 1800, showing a total twice as large as  as for 1800. They are as follows for tlie  leading mines: Anaconda, $*1,.'{75,010; Bos-  6c Montana, $2,010,-170: Montana Ore Purchasing Company, $100,000: Butte 6c Boston, $80,805; Colorado Co.. $18,075; W. A.

John Charlton, who is one of the one-  ideaed men in the house of commons,  should he happen along past the custom  house at Nelson on Sunday, would throw  up his hands in holy horror. The staff is  so small, that in order to keep Sup with  the work, the collector is forced to work  on Sundtiy.  Said  to   Have Been   Paid  for Sloean   Mining  and Milling Properties.  Away backin.1892, a wide-awake speculator named W. D.  Middaugh happened  to  be attracted  to Kootenay.    He had  operated in the iron ranges of/Wisconsin  and Michigan and had the ear of men who  were famous there as successful operators.  He looked the country over, and began  bonding   mineral  claims  and   townsites  rightand left, confining his. operations to  Slocan  district.     At   one  time  he had  bonds on fully one hundred claims and on  the townsites of New Denver and Silver-  ton.   Among those whom he induced to  invest money in the< country were A. E.  Humphreys,   N.   D.   Moore,   and   G.   R.  Atkins.   These gentlemen induced others  to come in.   They built the first concentrator and tramway in the Sloean, opened  up mines,  and had varying   success for  three years.   Middaugh became involved  and left the country.    G. R. Atkins, after  standing in the breech during   the   depressed times of '9A and '91,   rustling as  few men have ever done, pulled out and  tried his  luck in  the Big Bend country.  A.   E.  Humphreys,   believing   that   the  slump in the price of silver would knock  the bottom out of the Slocan, tried Traii,  and for a while wras the king-pin of that  camp.   He  was the man who made the  deal  through which F. Augustus Pleinze  got one-third of the townsite of Trail for  locating his smelter there, and the sale of  the lots gave Heinze part of the money  with whicli the smelter was built.    N. D.  Moore stuck to   the, Slocan.   Last  week  all, or   nearly all, of   the   properties in  whicli the above-named men had interests  at. one   time   or   other   were   sold   to  the    Scottish    Colonial     Gold     Fields,  Limited,   of   Edenburg,    Scotland,    for  $100,000.    Among   the  properties   transferred were the Idaho mines, the Alamo  mines, the Cumberland mines,theYakima  mines,   the  Ivanhoe mines,   the   concentrator at Three Forks, aud the  tramway  between the Alamo mines and the concentrator.    The new owners will consolidate all the interests in order that the  best results may be obtained.  Railway Rumors.  There are a number of rumors floating  loosely around as to the intentions of the  Canadian Pacific officials, now that superintendent Marpole has been among us for  a day. One is that a connection will be  made with the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway and-a union depot built near-the  city wharf; another is that a depot and  hotel, unique in design, will be erected at  the,junction of the Slocan IUver branch  with the Columbia & Kootenay, in order  that tourists and fishing parties may have  accommodations when , visiting the  grounds once famous as Tom Ward's  crossing. When asked regarding them,  chief engineer Perry looked wise and said  not a word. Nevertheless, they may be  true. . ���'���-'���   ���  Who is "Boss" at Rossland?  "Robert Scott, mayor of Rossland, and  John Kirkup, mining recorder and chief  constable of the mining division in which  Rossland is situate, have locked horns  over the question of bossing the police  force of Rossland. Although Rossland is  a city, the police are all provincial constables, who owe allegiance only to Mr.  Kirkup. Two of the constables are attending court at Nelson, and mayor Scott  has appointed two specials to take their  place. Mr. Kirkup will not recognize  them as peace officers, and the mayor says  as he is "boss" they must be recognized.  It is different in Nelson. The city hires  and fires at will its own policemen, as the  provincial officials do not even known  that the town is incorporated.  Politics.  There will be a "meeting of Opposition  leaders in Vancouver before long with  the object of arranging issues in whicli to  make the next campaign in the province.  There should not be too many issues.  One issue is the doing away of special  legislation. Special and private legislation not only consumes too great a part  of the time that should be devoted to the  consideration of public measures, but it  leads to_ practices that tends to lessen confidence in tlie integrity of the members of  the legislative assembly. Fads should be  sluffed. There are men in the Opposition  endowed with horse sense, aud they  should be allowed to make'the issues.  Chock Full.  As ail evidence that Nelson is getting  its share of the travel to Kootenay, there  is not a vacant house or hotel room in the  town. E. .f. Cumin lately took charge of  the Stanley house, .renovated it from cellar to garret, renamed it the Club, and  the first night he was ready for business  turned away a dozen transients. The  house has been full ever since.  The Carlboo-Rrmbler Team Wins.  Murphy and Lawlor of the Rambler-  Cariboo team won the drilling contest at  Sandon on the 22nd instant, with the  Whitewater team in the second place.  The contest is said to have been keen, and  the match exciting. The base ball match  was won by the Kaslo nine with a score  of II to  10.   Another Accident on the. City Wharf.  Today a horse and  wagon  belonging to  the   West Kootenay   Butcher Company  backed off the  wharf.    The wagon  and  harness were recovered.  AROUND   AINSWORTH.  New Operators Are Making Thing's Hum in the  Oldest Camp in Southern Kootenay.  The extensive development work going  ou in the vicinity of Ainsworth , has  created a demand for building lots and  dwelling houses, a condition rather new  in the history of the town. A good  percentage of the men working in and  around the camp are married men and  their families are scattered all over the  hills. Miners' cabins, upon claims which  have not been worked for some years, are  now being pressed into service for the  accommodation of new comers and-everything looks as if the good times had come  to stay.  0. D. Westby of the Canadian Pacific  Mining & Milling Company was at the  company's property on Woodbery creek  last week and paid'-up all arrears in connection with the company's operations.  Arrangements were made for resuming  work this week.; Until such time as the  company has its own'property opened up  sufficiently to keep the concentrator  running continuously, it is announced,  that it will do any custom concentrating'  that may oJfer.  The owners of the Albion have let the  contract for driving another 75 feet on  their crosscut tunnel,  secured by a party of Swedes.  Maxwell Stevenson of Philadelphia,  owner of the Highlander, is expected in  camp this week. Work has been commenced upon the Highlander tramway.  It is to'be 2,400 feet long and will use 0i  tons of wire cable. The Highlander is iu  good shape for working, but nothing is  known of Mr. Stevenson's intentions in  this regard.  Men are at work grading for . the flume  to carry water to the Highland mill site.  The opinion is general throughout the  camp that the discovery of substantial  gold values in the Highland ore will  induce the owners to work the property c,  upon a large scale this summer.  The Hall Exploration Company has  four men at work on the Neosha driving  a tunnel in an ore ledge to tap the shaft  at a depth of 50 feet. They have about  -10 tons of first-class hand-sorted ore and  about 100 tons of second-class ore ready  for shipment to the Hall Mines smelter.  The first-class ore will average 75 ounces  silver and about 25 per cent lead. Thomas  Cayzer, who is in charge of the work at  the Neosha, reports the recent finding of  some wire silver.  The Sol is making regular shipments  of ore "and concentrates. There are 50  men working on the property, under the  superintendence of Leander Shaw. A  drift is being run from the main tunnel  to tap the ledge below the winze. It is  hard rock to work in, and the men have  ubeen forced to run somewhat further with  the drift than was estimated. .  Work on the Dellie has been closed  down, owing to lack of supplies, and the  Dellie crew have been put to work on one  Jeff Davis sinking a shaft. Both of these  claims have been stocked, S.S. Bailey  being a large holder in each company.  The appearance of the claims is improving  and the stock of the companies is slowly  forging ahead.  Charles F.Olson has been obliged to  stop sinking on the Olson claim, owing to  the soft nature of the ground. The  owners will let a contract to run a 50 foot  tunnel into the sidebill to cut the ledge.  Capt. Hay ward is interested in the Olson,  and the claim is looked upon as one of the  most promising in the camp.  On the Maestro, A. W.CMcune has four  men at work extending the tunnel. They  are in about 150 feet. \ ���'-  . There are about 20 men pushing  development on the Tariff. The incline  shaft is now down 250 feet and a drift has  been run 75 feet to the north and 50 feet  to the south. At the 100 foot level a crosscut was run to the foot wall which  disclosed about four feet of nice concentrating ore.  Foreman Rainville is opening up the  Mile Point, with a crew of eight or nine  men. A shipment will be made from the  Mile Point this week.  On the Black Diamond and Little  Donald there are about sixty men  employed in getting the property in  shape for regular shipments. A hoist is  in position on the Little Donald aud ore  has been purchased from the Black  Diamond. The third ledge has been cut  in the upper tunnel and some high grade  ore exposed. The intention of the company is to continue the main lower tunnel.  In lhis tunnel the first two ledges have already been struck, and it is estimated  that another 75 feet will cut the third  ledge encountered in the upper tunnel  and which carries the highest grade ore.  Accommodations have been built on the  property for 80 or 00 men.  On the north slope of the north fork of  Woodberry creek, about two miles from  the lake, several galena finds have been  made during the past two weeks. Messrs.  Geddes and Wills wereamongthe locators  in this section.  The country around the Blue Bell mine  is receiving considerable attention from  prospectors, and about 25 locations have  been made during the past two months.  The locators claim to have found good ore.  The lowest assay admitted i.s 15 ounces in  silver. Tlie locations are all within a  radius of tour miles of tlie Blue Bell.  Copper Bullion.  The Hall Mines smelter at Nelson has  turned out 100 tons of copper bullion,  with but one trifling mishap, since the  reverberatory furnace was first charged  with white metal. The blast furnace is  producing about 15 tons of matte daily.  ��� Hi  ���5.t  J  '���f>;A>Ti;:T-}"-\fr''*i^*_^^^^ ,1.*".**i";:iiv'"**-��.-'*���'--'��� ���'.��"�� '���.�����������,-Vh:4--..m ,-**>-.-��� ..<*v ���'������-���"��--.]'MSS*��.->*'t',< * .*W?"Av THE  TRIBUNE:   NELSON,  B.C., SATURDAY, JUNE; 20,  1807.

SATURDAY' MORNING 1 - NE' 2H. 1897  Tin-; reports that come from Ottawa regarding the proceedings of the railway  committee of the house of commons, if  true, prove that the government has made  a mistake in its railway policy. The deal  with the Canadian Pacific for the building  of the Crow's Nest Pass road had to be  followed by one with the Grand Trunk  for the use of its tracks between Point  Levis and Montreal. Next came a deal  by which the Canadian Pacific was to get  a bonus for building an extension of the  Columbia 6c "Western, a road ostensibly  owned by F. Augustus Heinze. Neither  deal is in the public interest, however  much particular sections of the country  might be benefited were the deals carried  through. The deals mean that the people  of Canada hand over fifteen millions of  dollars to certain railways and railway  promoters, for- which they do not get a  dollar in return.  When the textile schedule of the new  tariff bill was being considered in the  house of commons at Ottawa the other  day, Mr. Henderson, the member for the  county of Halton (Ontario), created considerable amusement by denouncing Canadian-made shirts as too short in the tail.  Protectionist as he was, he preferred to  purchase foreign-made shirts, and unless  the finance minister could give an assurance that the shirt manufacturers will  give us a little more length he would move  to reduce the duty on shirts to 15 per cent.  Sensible Mr. Henderson.  works at some point iu southern  British  Columbia for the Omaha 6c Grant Smelting & Refining Company?   It is generally  belived that the road will pay when built;  and it is generally believed that, the day  is not far distant when reduction works  on a large scale will pay in southern British  Columbia.   Were the Omaha it Grant  Smelting & Refining Company to ask the  Dominion government for a bonus sufficiently large to build reduction works at  some point in southern British Columbia,  would the people of the coast hold public  meetings in favor of or in condemnation  of the proposal?   Tmo TitimiNE is of the  opinion that Vancouver  Island  and  the  Fraser Valley would be as one against it.  The Crow's Nest Pass railway should not  have been bonused, and  no bonus should  be granted to aid the building of the projected  road  fronv Robson  to  Penticton.  Tmo Tmiu'NE may stand alone in taking  this view, just as it stood alone in advocating the placing of an export duty ou  ore: but the day is not far distant when  the people of Canada will realize that the  present system of allowing a few members  of parliament to say what railways shall  be built at public expense���without public ownership���is radical 1 wrong!  It rs said that Rossland is uot booming  as it once was. Notwithstanding the fact  that people are not tumbling over each  other in their efforts to buy corner lots or  blocks of mining stock, Rossland is not at  a standstill. The shipments of ore from  the adjacent mines are steadily increasing, and that is the only basis on which to  judge the future of a mining town. Rossland is growing, and will continue to grow  just as long as the output of its mines  continue to increase.   The differences between the provincial  government and the squatters at Nelson  may be adjusted on lines that will be fair  to all parties. ' When the question is  looked into aud understood by officials  who are not self-seekers, it will be found  that the proper course for the government  to pursue is to offer the lots for sale,  allowing some one with good common  sense to fix the upset price.  SHORT   BITS   OF   NEWS   FROM   KASLO.  IT IS IMPORTANT  All persons wishing to visit the Goat  River, Duck Creek, Summit Creek, Fort  Sheppard, Priest Lake, or Fort Steele  Mining Districts should know that by  taking the Steamer Alberta or Ainsworth  for Ockonook, Idaho, and purchasing,  their supplies of the old reliable Ockonook, General Store, they will get their  goods at Spokane retail prices and be  from 20 to, 50 iniles nearer, the above  named districts than at any other supply  point on  the   Kootenai   River.  BARNES Manager  0CK0N00K CENERAL STORE  The business centre for the rich  mines on Springer Creek and  Slocan Lake. This is one of  the richest districts in British  Columbia.  Lots $100 to  $500 each  Ffy\NK FLETCHER Trustee.  Wicst Kootisnay is blessed with banks  and flooded with newspapers. Rossland  has two banks and three newspapers; Nelson has two of each; Kaslo has two banks  and one newspaper: Sandon, like Nelson,  has two of each; New Denver and Trail  get along with only one of each; and  Slocan City and Itevelstoke each have two  newspapers and one bank. If the banks  pay as well as the newspapers, holders of  shares iu the Bank of Montreal and the  Bank of British Columbia and the Bank  of British North America and the Imperial Bank will have no more worry over  the size of their semi-annual dividends.  To public gambling can be traced much  of the crime that is committed in towns  which allow it. Public gambling is permitted in several towns in British Columbia, because public opinion i.s in favor of  running everything wide open, and the  local officials are afraid to do anything  that is contrary to public opinion. There  will be a day of reckoning in all these  towns.   Ai-1'ai.-i.nti.y the coast is up  in arms,  all because the Dominion government has  failed to bonus a railway from Robson, on  the Columbia river, to Penticton, on Oka-  nagan lake. The question might be asked,  why should the Dominion or provincial  governments  bonus any  Darticular  railway?    if railways cannot be built without government assistance, why not pass  a  general law, under  which all  railway  builders    would    have   like   treatment.  Under the  present system, only railway  builders who have a "pull" with the government in  power   secure bonuses; railway builders without the "pull" do its do  all other men who embark in legitimate  enterprises,  that is,  first   satisfy   themselves that the proposed venture will pay,  then furnish the money out of their own  resources to make theventureanactuality.  Take the Crow's Nest Pass railway subsidy as a case in point.    Why should the  Dominion be called on to build  that road  for the Canadian Pacific liailway Company, anymore than  to build reduction i  On Tuesday evening the steamer Ko-  kanee had on board forty tons of Black  Diamond ore, taken on board at . Ainsworth and consigned to the smelting  works at Pueblo, Colorado. There was  also a shipment from the same property  to the sampling works of the Kootenay  Ore Company, sent up by barge the day  previously. The Black Diamond will  ship regularly during the season.  The collector's roll for the City of Ivaslo,  for the current year is now complete, so  far as the assessed value is concerned, as  exempted property and the deductions  made by the board of revision do not  appear in that roll. The total value upon  whicli the rate, fixed by the council, will  be levied, amounts to $_71,-li50. The Municipal Clauses Act provides that only :"i0  per cent of the value of improvements  shall be considered in levying the rate.  Linnard's new hotel on Front street is  now in frame and presents quite an imposing appearance, but Dan Shaw has  given up the idea of serving dinner there  on the 4th of July. He will be in luck if  he is able to do it a month after that date.  _\Ir. Linnard has also iu frame a two-story  building on the lot adjoining the hotel on  the west. It is intended for offices, and  will be occupied in part by Henry Croft  and J. B. McKilligan.  The finest lot of pack animals imported  into Kaslo since George W. Hughes  brought.in his pack train some years ago  was brought down from Bonner's Perry  on Saturday. They were in splendid condition, and were in charge of Anderson  and Mullen, who will employ them in  packing at Silverton and Slocan City.  They were purchased in Anaconda, Montana. By the same steamer Ole Petersen  brought down a pair of heavy horses,  which he bought near Garfield, Washington.  The tax levy of the city for the ensuing  year, has been fixed by tne new bylaw at  \4':l mills on the dollar for general purposes  and 15 \ mills ou the dollar for sinking  fluid and interest on water debentures.  This '"'" '"'V seem somewhat high, but  it wi.i t.ii.y we necessary for the present  year. Subsequently it is confidently expected that the revenue from the water  system will be sufficient to provide for its  own expenditure in these lines.

A New Typewriter���Made by a Canadian Firm;.  We have had the pleasure of looking over the New  Empire Typewriter, a Canadian made machine, and find  it a marvel of simplicity through which the makers claim  durability. The t.\pos strike direct, moving only two  inches on a steel lied, 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 lock.  Ruling vertical and horizontal may bo done on it and the  price is less than half that of other standard machines,  do confident are the makers of the success of theii machine they will refund the money of any unsatisfied purchaser after a ten days' trial.

[June ;Mh|  THETpUP BUYS OLD ^ACS  haSS??'  :. ���.-..--���  ���  ���'<>,��� J,'-, r  S^fiill&it^ THE  TRIBUNE:   NELSON,  B.C., SATURDAY; JUNE 2(1,  1897.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  F. J. Finucane, manager of"die Bank oi"  ���Montreal at _\e\v Denver, spent a I'ew  day,.'in Nelson this week, lie claimed  that one ol the greatest needs oi' his town  and section was a good wagon road between Sandon, Three Forks, and New  Denver. Over two thousand dollars i'or  that purpose were subscribed in New  Denver, and if tlie government is equally  libera], the road will be built.  -.John O'Regan, foreman of the Last  Chance mine, Slocan district, came down  to Nelson to make a clean up on a little  real estate deal in which he has had  money i'or a year, He lei't for Sandon on  Wednesday with his original capital increased by Al percent.  W. It. Will, one of West Kootenay's all-  round speculators, arrived in Nelson from  Three Forks on .Monday. He claims that  the mine owners on the south fork of  Kaslo river, as well as those on the north  fork of Carpenter creek, are entitled to  some consideration at the hands of the  government. The former should be  assisted in building a wagon road and the  latter in building a good trail.  Joshua Davies of Victoria, one of the  I'-'jfest owners in the Nelson Cicy Land <fc  Improvement Compauy, is sojourning in  ��� Nelson. .Much of the land owned by hi.s  company adjoins Nelson and was subdivided into town lots several years ago.  The growth of Nelson is attracting attention to this property, and if the company  would only spend sufficient money to  make a.good road through a portion of it,  to make the lots accessible, buyers would  pay higher prices.  The Canadian Pacific's new steamer on  Slocan lake is the speediest craft on the  inland waters of British Columbia. She  . covers the distance between Slocan City  and New Denver in an hour. But she is  not speedy enough to run the old reliable  William Hunter off the route'.   ,  R. A. Ren wick, who has edited The Tribune with more or less wisdom for over a  year, left Nelson for Victoria on Tuesday.  When he returns he will be a wiser and a  sadder man���he will be wedded.  Alderman Malone represented Nelson at  the Diamond Jubilee celebration at Rossland on Tuesday. He claims that the  street decorations were alone worth the  trip. The principal features of the celebration were mayor Scott's address and a  procession of little girls.  All the transportation companiescenter-  ing at Nelson have made a single-fare-for-  round-trip rate far the Dominion Day  celebration at Nelson.  The loyal British residents of Spokane  celebrated the 22nd at Ben Norman's  ranch on Little Spokane river. O'eorge  Arthur Bigelow was present.  Lee Coombs of Rossland is in Nelson,  merely to see his real estate holdings.  He wishes he could live in a town where  the people have time to swap yarns between trades.  ���Jesse A. Bigelow is back from a prospecting trip in the .Fort Steele section of  East Kootenay. He reports that country  overrun with prospectors and men looking for work. Fort Steele is quite a! town,  but Wardner is only one in name. Mr.  Bigelow came, across the mountains to  J'ilot Bay, leaving his party camped on  the summit.  Edward Applewhaite & Co. have moved  their office from the corner of .Victorkt  and Kootenay streets to the second story  of the Thompsou bookstore building; ou  Baker street.  Capt. Hay ward and Scott McDonald  have purchased an interest in the  Ainsworth and Nelson group of claims  located at the head of Kokanee creek.  The claims were', formerly owned by  Messrs. Leudruru and Proctor. It is the  intention of the present owners to do  considerable work upon the properties  this season.    ��� .  H. G. Neelands was up at the.Athabasca  mine this week and secured several good  photographs of the men working on the  property. There are twelve men at work.  A shaft is being sunk on tlie ledge to  connect with the 200 foot tunnel, which  has a depth of 50 feet. The ledge in the  tunnel varies in width'from 18 inches to -J  feet.      ���  Mrs. W. J. Guest of Winnipeg, accompanied by her t.vo children, i.s on a visit  to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. P.  Robinson of this town. "  The twins which were born to the  wife of S. J. Roberts last week have  the distinction of being the first twins  born in Nelson. The twins are. healthy  youngsters���a boy and a girl���and weigh  about eight pounds each. Their advent  brings the muster of the young Roberts  uji to eight.  Joshua Davies, managing director of  the Nelson City Land 6c Improvement  Company, after an examination of lot  siSa, commonly called Bogustown, has  decided not to offer any lots in the  addition for sale until the same has been  resurveyed. -He has recommended the  expenditure of $1,000 upon the property  to put it in shape. Nelson avenue is to  lie remade from the water front to the  limit of the addition, and Anderson street  from Nelson avenue to Oak street, where  it is proposed to connect witha road to  the town. First street is also to be opened  up to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway  terminus.  of   Rossland    was   in  in   hi.s   search  for  a  Jack Quincy.    Quincy  witness  in a murder case,  We have ju'sL received another lot of Ladies' Fine Shirt  Waists, made of Organdy and Dimity Detachable White  Collars and���Cuffs; also Collars and Cuffs to match Waists.  An early inspection of these goods arc asked, as they,arc  apidlv.     Mail  orders will receive prompt attention.  se  ling  O.  F.   Wegener  Nelson   this   week  prospector  named  is wanted as a  and it is said that if he can be found the  innocence of a man: sentenced to be  hanged in Seattle can be established.  Quincy was last heard of in Rossland,  .and i.s now supposed to be somewhere in  houthern Kootenay. Those having any  J-nowledge     of     his     whereabouts    are  requested to communicate with O. F.  Wegener of Rosslaiid, but as no  description of Quincy is given, most  people will have difficulty in locating him.  The Nelson City Land 6z Improvement  Company has placed lot 182, commonly  known as the Davies Addition to Nelson,  in the hands of Messrs. Morris, McLean 6c  .Co. i'or sale. The lots in the addition  have a o0 foot frontage with a depth of  120 feet. The roadways are 75 and GO  feet wide, and the alleyways in the  rear of the lots are .1(5 feet wide. As  the company is desirous of making this  addition the residential portion of the  city, the lots will be sold at a reasonable figure, with liberal concessions to  those who take the lead in erecting  dwellings worth $500 or over. The map  of the addition and further particulars  respecting the conditions of sale can be  had at the office of Morris, McLean &  Co., in the Clements '& Hillyer block.  Joseph Frederick Ritchie of Rossland is  in the liveliest city in British Columbia.  The directors of the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital beg to acknowledge  with thanks a parcel of periodicals from  Mrs. G. R. Robson: a parcel of cast off  clothes from IT. F. Langton, and two  gallons of brandy from IT. J. Evans & Co.;  also $9.05 from collection boxes.  An election for school trustee will be  held on Tuesday next. The retiring director, G. R. Robson, has served the people  well, but does not care for another term  under existing conditions. A good school  will go far toward influencing men with  families to make Nelson their home, aud  the school directors should be alive to  that fact. Jf the directors make an effort  in that direction, they will have the support of the people; otherwise, they will  not. Mr., Robson had better reconsider  his determination to quit the job.  J. H. Vanstoue is opening a drug store  and assay office at the corner of Baker  and Josephine streets.  Farley 6c Lapointe .expect to have a part  of their new Grand Central hotel open for  business by July 1st.  Tom Collins is thinking seriously of  writing a novel, which will have for its  groundwork the many escapes from the  jail at Nelson.  One of the special features of the procession on the forenoon of Dominion Day  will be gaily decorated floats laden with  little girls. This is iu charge of a committee of ladies, of whom Mrs. Stanley,  Mrs. "Blake" Wilson, Mrs. LaBau, Mrs.  Madden, and Mrs. Seaman are taking an  active part. ���'    >  R." Marpole, who is now general superin-  tendant of the Pacific division of the  Canadian Pacific railway, was in Nelson  yesterday. He did not hand over to the  mayor deeds for, the lots on which the fire  hall stands, although it was rumored that  was the special business that brought  him so far away from the main line.  Sherman Eastman's father,5 who is 83  years of age, arrived from Cheney, Washington. l!i--t week. He was somewhat  surpi--- 'I ;������ iii.d that the air was just as  I'm re iu.u uu's people just as orderly up  here in Her Majesty's possessions as down  in L'ncle Sam's domains.  The one special feature of the celebration at Nelson on the 22nd, was an oration  by Mr. II a gel from the balcony of the  Clements & Hillyer block and the singing  of "God Save the Queen" by the crowd in  attendance.  If Baker and the other streets in Nelson  are not as level as billiard tables by Dominion Day. Mat Kelly and Jake Serson  will never get another job under the present administration.  SHORT   BITS   OF, NEWS    PROM   KASLO.  surrounds the saw mill property of Mr.  Buchanan,1 and in addition block 12, and  the southern half of block 11 of map 303  A and block i of map 393. Exemption  was asked by a bylaw submitted to the  ratepayers in 1895, aud defeated at that  time. The new bylaw covers a less area,  and may be more favorably considered.  It is claimed'on behalf of the railway that  it was promised to the Kaslo-Kootenay  ,Laud Company, with which the railway  company is closely allied, that railway  property should be exempted from taxation as a condition of the land company  consenting to incorporation. Besides, the  railway company claims that it should-be  under no more stringent conditions in  regard to municipal taxation than it was  in respect of provincial taxation under its  act of incorporation. There is much to be  said on both sides, and the subject will  doubtless be thoroughly ventilated before  it is finally passed.  Fdsvin Cummings of the Hotel Slocan  has announced his intention of adding two  stories to his hotel building, one to be  used as guest chambers and the other as  a public hall, provided the city council  will approve the work. He proposes to  strengthen the building from the foundation aud otherwise make the walls capable of sustaining the increased weight.  Fletcher & Fletcher of The Club, at the  corner of Front and Fourth streets, propose to add to the present premises which  they occupy, and have applied to the  council i'or the privilege of laying a private sewer from their premises to the lake,  promising to carry it out below low-water  mark.  D. C. McGregor's building on Front  street is now receiving the finishing  touches, and when completed will present  a very handsome appearance. It has  been leased by J. J. Sehl, and is already  filled with a large stock of furniture.  The new offices of the Bank of British-  North America- in Alexander's building,  on the corner of Fifth and Front streets,  are being fitted up in a very elaborate  manner. A brick vault with steel doors  has been constructed and is nearly  finished. The counters are elaborate and  the whole arrangement as convenient as  they-can be made. These apartments,  when completed, will be second to none,  similarly used, in the whole district.  Complaint is made that parties conduct  themselves in an unseemly, manner by  publicly bathing on the east side of the  lake, in full view of boating excursionists.  The place is outside civic jurisdiction, but  the authorities will doubtless find some  way to deal with.the diversions of these  shameless people of both sexv  The rush of prospectors desiring to record new locations, continues at the mining recorder's office." Last week there  were as many as 100 locations, and during  the present week, the office has been continuously crowded during business hours.  The transfers have, however, been of a  minor character.  Cockle -6c Papworth have purchased  from F. J. Donaldson the lot immediately  east of their hotel'on Front street, aud  will erect a store building upon the property. The price paid was considerably in  advance of the assessed value, which was  considered somewhat high when made.  of  ���James Poirier has sold to E.Miner an  undivided one-half interest in the Horseshoe, a mineral claim situate ou the  north side of Granite creek, six miles from  Sanca. for the sum of $500.  (.William S. Lewis of Spokane has purchased an undivided l-18th interest in the  Mammoth. Copper King, and Big Four  mineral claims, situate on White Grouse  mountain, from A. A. Evans of Kalispel,  Montana. The announced consideration  is nominal.  Alderman  Buchanan has  introduced a  bylaw to exempt the Kaslo & Slocan Railway Company from municipal taxation.  The area  for which  exemption is asked J  comprises  very nearly sixty   acres, and  Notice   of   Application   for   Certificate  Improvements.  Oltll'NTAI. MINKI-AI.
