 Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  FIFTH   YEAR-NO. M.  '^'4^  NELSON   BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY   JULY  'U, 1897.  KOOTENAY  Has   Three  Smelters  in   Successful  Operation,  and  Enough Ore  in Sight to   Run  Several   More.  TWO , DOLLARS  A YEAR.  MOVING   AHEAD   SLOWLY.  the  I-  Martin and the New Jail.  Since his arrival in .Nelson' Hon. C. B.  Martin has conceded two or three points  to the people of Nelson, but he is said to  be still obdurate in the matter of locating  the provincial jail among the residences.  If Martin can be induced to stop over for  a few days more he will no doubt come  around to see this matter as the people of  Nelson do. The commissioner is credited  with stating that it would cost more to  build the jail upon the government reserve near the court house than upon the  block selected by the government agent  in Nelson. It will not take long to convince the commissioner that he is in error  in this respect. There will be about 000  loads of stone required for the foundation  of the new jail. Ln Nelson the handling  of stone is a big factor in the cost. Three  loads can be handled to the court house  reserve for what it will cost to haul one  up hill to the proposed site. The same  thing also applies to all other materials.  If the chief commissioner   puts  the jail  " New Difficulties Present Themselves In  Laying of, the Distribution Service.  The city council is not making very  great progress in the way of securing a  water works system for the city. This is  not wholly the fault of the members of  the council. The conditions in Nelson are  not very favorable to the rapid prosecution of such work, and new difficulties  constantly presenting themselves, tend to  further complicate matters. l<Yom the  present outlook it is possible that part of  the work will be done by days labor  especially the laying ot the distribution  pipes. The difficultythat presents itself  in this work is that none of the streets  have been graded, aud contractors in  figuring upon the work would have to  make guesses as to quantities.  With respect to the reservoir, however,  it is practically straight work. Engineer  McCulloch has the plans for the same  completed, and tenders for theconstruc-  tion of the same can be considered and  the contract awarded when the time allowed contractors runs out today. The  reservoir will have a capacity of 1,000,000  gallons, .lust what wetter supply this  will give the city is largely a matter for  conjecture, being wholly dependant upon  the amount of water which can be  brought into it. This .information can  only be had after making the source of  .supply a study during all seasons of the  year. Engineer AlcCulloch says that  when the reservoir is once filled it will  meet all the domestic requirements of the  city of Nelson for four days without being replenished.  It is proposed to   bring  the water from  above the forks of Anderson creek.   For  awhile there was a little uneasiness about  the Anderson  creek  water as it was discovered   that  some   private   individuals  bad   filed an  application for  the  water,  but   the  acting   government agent   has  assured the  municipal   authorities   that  the interests of m: uicipality will be conserved   in  this  respect.    A dam  is to be  built about -S00 feet above  the  forks of  the creek, from  which  point  the  water  will  be carried   in  a  Home  7:500  feet in  length to the  reservoir.    This  flume will  be 12x12 inches, inside  measurement, and  will have a carrying capacity of 1.7o0,000  gallons in 2-1   hours.    It is estimated that  the  flume will   have a carrying capacity  double the present water  supply, so that  should it be  found  necessary to increase  the supply by bringing  in the upper fork  of Anderson creek  the  flume will bo adequate.    A  box . flume   has . been decided  upon  for economic  reasons.    It   is   estimated that there is a saving of from $2o00  co $.'5000 in its use as against wooden pipe,  and a much  greater saving as compared  with  iron  pipe.   The chief objection to  the box  flume  is  that it  cannot be used  under  pressure, and  for  this reason  the  flume will have to follow the grade of the  hill to the .reservoir.   This means that it  cannot conform to street lines, but will bo  run over private property, and it remains  to be seen what arrangements the municipality can make with the owners of this  land.   The question of expense shutout  the consideration  of a pipe line,  uude'r-  pressure,   conforming    more   closely    to  street lines. ���  With respect to the sewerage system it  is not likely that anything' will be done  until the water works construction is well  in hand, and the corporation has some  idea of how near the work will come  within the estimated cost. Engineer Mc-  Culloelrs plans for the sewerage system  are more favorably considered than the  others, but they will doubtless be greatly  modified. He favors building the main  sewer up the bed of -Ward creek, without  keeping upon the street line. He estimates that a sewer built up the bed of  the creek will cost less than half that of a  sewer built straight up -'Ward street. It  will be for the council to decide whether  or not it will be desirable; to have the'  sewer upon the street or upon private  property.  Engineer McCulloch's idea of a sewerage  system is to have a main sewer built of  brick, 24 by 2-1 inches in' diameter, reducing a couple of inches every two blocks  after passing Silica street, and carried up  the bed. of Ward creek as far as Gore  street. A sewer of these dimensions built  of brick cau.be put in, according to his  figures,-as cheaply as a sewer of 12-inch  pipe, and would be capable of carrying  off all the surface water and sewerage of  the Ward creek area. The connections  upon the side streets would be of pipe.  The life of the system he proposes would  be about 20 years, and would, therefore,  serve the city until it was in a position to  put in a new system.  St s:i  ��1 8!)

This course may not  be favored by those living in officialdom  at present, as it might put them to the  necessity of seeking new lodgings, but it  would be conserving the public interests,  an.cL.that is .vhat.the chief commissioner  is supposed to do.  Canadian Pacific's New Freight' Tariff.  The Canadian Pacific. Railway company's new freight tariff on shipments  from the coast to points in Kootenay,  went into effect on Wednesday. A slight  increase has been made in first-class rates,  but reductions are made in the nine other  classifications. A synopsis of the new  and old rates is "given below. The figures  in the first column represent the old rates  on goods consigned to Nelson, Trail, Na-  kusp and Kaslo, and those in the second  column represent the new rates to these  points:  First-class   Second-class-'   Third-class   -Fourth-class   Fifth-clnss   Sixth-class      Seventh-class   Fightli-clns-      Ninth-class       ���  Tenth-class       Sg 13  .The fifth-class, on which the largest reduction is made, is in most cases carloads  of , groceries, hardware, sugar, milk,  liquors, etc. Heavy lines, such as brick,  cement, etc., belong to the tenth-class,  and machinery to the sixth. Railroad  rails and spikes principally make up the  seventh-class, and case liquors and such  like the fourth, while shipments in less  than carload lots are charged as provided ,  in the second, third, and fourth/classes.  They Will Get the Trail.  \V. I j. McLaughlin, one of the owners of  the McLaughlin and Clinton group iof  claims on Hamill creek, had an interview  with G. B. Martin, chief commissioner of  lands and works, this week aud succeeded  in convincing him that'the government  should do something toward completing  the remaining six miles of trail from  Hamill creek to the lake. It has been decided that the government will put up  half the cost-and the mine owners the  balance. McLaughlin says that a great  many people are coming into the Hamill  creek section from East lvootenay over  the Toby creek trail. He estimates that  there are fully two hundred prospectors  scattered around the hills in his section of  the district and several findsare reported.  McLaughlin.and Clinton are the pioneer  locators upon the creek, and they have  about the best showings. The ore from  the ledges along this creek is much richer  than was at first supposed. During the  past week McLaughlin had several assays  made, the returns varying from $10" to  $087 to the ton.  THE   MUNICIPAL   COUNCIL.  The Junipers Still in Court.  The appeal of the jum pers of the Quartz  creek or Ymir townsite, from the decision  of justice Walkem came before the full  court at Victoria on Saturday. Chief  justice Davie and justices Drake and Mc-  Coll were on the bench. The townsite  was jumped in April last, upon the assumption  that the  Nelson & Fort Shep  pard Railway Company had not complied'  with the conditions imposed upon it by  the legislature. The jumpers claim that  the land has not been properly surveyed,  and that the railway company is not entitled to a crown grant for it. In the first  brush in the courts therailway company  secured an injunction from justice McColl  restraining the- jumpers from dealing  with the property in any way. The  jumpers applied to justice Walkem to  have the injunction dissolved, but he refused the application and made au order  restraining the jumpers from applying to  the chief commissioner of lands and works  for a crown grant. Frank Higgins appeared for Parker and Powell and .John  A. Blake appeared in his own behalf; E.  V. Bodwell: appeared for the railway  company.   Judgment was reserved.  Those Who Should. Go to Klondyke.  ,At the rate the Alaska stories of gold  finds are coming in, they are enough to  unsettle people's minds altogether; yet it  is not wise to yield to the seductive allurements of speedy and certain wealth.  Those who can get along at home had better stay; for Alaska is a harsh country to  get along in, the winters are longer and  colder than anyone accustomed only to  this latitude has any idea of, aud above  all, the rule must hold good there as elsewhere, that it is the few who succeed, and  we hear all about these; the many who  fail are not heard of. There can be no  doubt but the sufferings up there the  coming winter will besevere, possibly disastrous. None should go save those who  are footloose, who understand mining  and who are healthy, strong and used to  outdoor hardships.  Special Regulations for Klondyke.  Hon. Clifford Sifton minister of the interior, in answer to a telegram from  Aulay Morrison, asking if the federal government intended to make the mining  laws of British Columbia applicable to  the Yukon, telegraphed as follows: "No  intention of making British Columbia  mining laws apply to the Yukon. Special  regulations applying to that district,  which have been carefully revised by  Ogilvie, will be administered by a staff,  on the ground. Further amendments are  now being made, and will'be completed  as soon as possible. Miners will have to  deal with our officials in the district.  Clifford Sifton."  What the Mayor and  Aldermen  Did  During-  The Past/Week.  Alderman Fletcher-was the only absentee at the fifteenth regular meetingof the  city, council, which was held in the fire  hall Monday evening. ,  Alderman Teetzel presented the account  of the finance committee, recommending  that the account of Messrs. Malone &  Tregillus for repairs in connection with  the fire hall, be paid.  A communication was received from  John Elliot respecting his account for  professional services, and the same was  referred to the finance committee with  instructions to report upon the same.  A petition from Messrs. Lapoiute and  Farley for two crossings at the corner of  Ward and Vernon streets, was referred to  the public works committee.  On motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded by alderman Malone, it was resolved  that three and one-half blocks of three-  plank sidewalk be built on the Hall Mines  road, Hoover-street and Lake street, and  that the work be done by day's labor  under the foremanship of Alexander  Chisholm.   .   .  , On motion of alderman Malone, seconded by alderman Hillyer, it was resolved  that the six-foot sidewalk on Stanley  street be extended from Robstfn street to'  Houston street, aud that the work will be  done by day's labor under the foreman-  ship of Alexander Chisholm. ���  The electric lighting and wiring by-law  No. 13, was considered in committee of  the whole with alderman Malone in the  chair. The by-law was reported complete with,amendments, and received its  third reading. The motiori'to reconsider  was moved by alderman Malone, seconded  by alderman Hillyer.

The alien labor bill which the federal  government has decided to enforce  throughout this province, is not the  vicious bill that many suppose, it provides against the entry of aliens into Canada under contract, to work in Canada.  There is nothing in the bill to interfere  with citizens of the United States working in British Columbia so long as they do  not make their contracts before entering  the province. The principal clauses of  the bill are:  I. Prom and after the passing of this  act it shall be unlawful for any person,  company, partnership or corporation, in  any manner, to prepay the transportation, or in any way to assist or encourage  the importation or immigration of any  alien or foreigner into, under contract or  agreement, parole and special, express or  implied, made previous to the importation or immigration of such alien or foreigner, to perform labor or service of any  kind in Canada.  2.1 All contracts or agreements,,express  or implied, parole or special, hereafter  made by and between any person, company, partnership or corporation, and any  alien or foreigner, to perform labor or  service, or having reference to the performance of labor or service by any person in Canada, previous to the immigration or importation of the person whose  labor or service is contracted for in Canada,, shall be void and of no effect.  3. For every violation of any of the  provisions of section 1 of this act, the person, partnership, company or corporation  violating it by knowingly assisting, encouraging or soliciting the im migration or  importation of any alien or foreigner into  Canada, to perform labor or service of  any kind under contract or agreement,  express or implied, parole or special, with  such alien or foreigner previous to his becoming a resident in or a citizen of Canada, shall forfeit and pay the sum of $1000,  which may be used for and recovered by  her majesty's attorney-general of Canada,  or the person duly authorized thereto by  him, as debts of like account are now recovered in auy competent court in Canada, the proceeds to be paid into the  hands of the receiver-general; and separate suits may be brought for each foreigner who is a party to such contract or  agreement.  4. The master of any vessel who knowingly brings into Canada on such vessel  and lands or permits to be landed from  any port or place, any alien, laborer, mechanic, or artisan, who. previous to embarkation oh such vessel, had entered into  contractor agreement, parole or special,  express or implied, to perform labor or  service in Canada, shall be deemed guilty  of an indictable offence, and upon conviction thereofshall.be punished by a fine of  not more than $500 for each alien, laborer,  mechanic, or artisan so brought or landed,  and may also be imprisoned for a term  not exceeding six months.  "I am Nothing if I am not Critical."  ���Illecillkwabt, B.C., July 24th.  To the Editor of- Thi-j Tribune: The  British Columbia Mining Critic, The Ross-  lander and the Mining Record have recently published articles dealing in a disparaging manner with the Waverly mine,  and calling in question the price paid for  that property to Grant Go van's company.  I shall deal more particularly with the  article appearing in the Mining Critic of  the 24th ultimo. The motto of this journal is, "I am Nothing if 1 am not Critical,"  and evidently the article was composed  by the man who adopted this motto. I  would enquire, is,lie anything else but  critical, is he well informed and are his  statements accurate? He is undoubtedly  critical, but it was always my opinion  that decent criticism is usually embellished with at least some degree of knowledge and information as to facts. All  those who have the good of British Columbia mining enterprises at heart can  .only sincerely deplore the publication  and circulation of such despicable journalism; and in the hope that I may in some  slight degree be able to arrest the garbage  of such unquallified pencillers, I make the  following challenge: The British Columbia Mining Critic shall nominate an accredited mining engineer of this province,  whose appointment shall be ratified by  the umpires, to thoroughly examine the  Waverly mine. He shall submit his report to three umpires, one to be named by  the British Columbia Mining Critic, one  by myself, and the other to be chosen by  these two.  If in their opinion the present shewing  in, the Waverly mine is not one of the  largest and one of the most valuable mineral deposits yet discovered in British  Columbia, I shall pay the usual fees of  the expert's examination and the charges  of the umpires, and also shall hand the  proprietor of the Mining Critic a check  for $500. On the other hand if the-property is reported as being of the exceptionally great value which we have represented and which has been 'represented  in the prospectus of the Waverly -mine  limited, then the mining critic: shall pay  all such expenses of the inspection and in  addition hand me a check for $500,  As the locator of this property and now  having no further interest in it, I have, in  justice to Mr. 'John Grant, to the Gold  Fields of British Columbia, to Mr. Grant  Govan and to the Waverly mine limited,  endeavored by this challenge to explode  and terminate such unjust criticism, and  in doing so I am inclined to think tkat I  will   be accomplishing a  distinct  benefit  for the good of the mining industry of the  province. I venture to think that I have  more knowledge of mines and mining  than can be acquired at the desk of an incipient journal that is nothing unless it  is critical, aud I am disposed to believe  that a few exposures of this kind would  lead the public to think that thi�� journal's  motto could antly be deprived of its last  three words.  I am, your obedient servant,  Out SAXDHKIWi.  ELLIS   WAS   FINED   $76.  HE   REFUSED   TO   ADVERTISE  So the Newspaper Decided to Make it Hot  for Trustee Fletcher.  The last issue of the Slocan City Pioneer  contains au attack upon bYank Fletcher's  management of the Slocan City townsite  as trustee for the owners of the same.  Among the other injudicious statements  which the Pioneer makes, are the following: "Never was a townsite in British  Columbia, or in any other country, more  pitilessly jobbed and puttered with than  that of Slocan City. Its experience is a  perfect illustration of what wrongs may  be heedlessly inflicted by an ill-regulated  government policy of grants and franchises, and points the necessity of a town-  site law that,will make the speculative  possessor to some degree responsible to  the well meaniug purchasers for necessary  , public improvements."  In support of this the Pioneer sets out  that trustee Fletcher has only visited the  townsite once since last spring, that he  allowed the citizens to spend $70 of their  own money in putting Main street in  shape for the celebration on May 24th,  and that he awarded Dave McBeath the  contract for grading some streets in the  townsite, simply because his was the  lowest tender for the work. More or less  abuse is sandwiched into the complaint  against the trustee, and tirade concludes  with the following:  "What is worse still, the Pioneer is  creditably informed that the street grading work done for Mr. Fletcher prior to  May 2-1 th has never been paid for. What  is the reason of withholding from these  men the money honestly earned by them,  which it is customary to pay on demand  at the completion of the labor assigned?  Is Mr. Fletcher figuring on the bankers'  per cent profit from the continued use  and conversion of. this little fund, which  is needed--so urgently by those'to whom  it rightly belongs."  It may be stated that the reason for  this paper's animus against the trustee  arises from his refusal Co patronize its advertising columns. The paper was refused an advertisement a few days before  the roast appeared, and the roast is but  the sequence of the refusal. The owners  of the Slocan City townsite spent $;">000  during the past IS months, exclusive of  their contribution of some $700 to the  Springer creek trail, and no person has  been kept out of any money earned while  in the employ of the townsite owners or  their trustee.

He Retailed Goods in Nelson Without Taking-  Out a Trader's License.  Charles E. Snaley. city clerk, has succeeded in securing a conviction in.his first  case before magistrate Crea.-e. for violation of the Trader's License Bi'-law. A.  B. Ellis, a salesman for Weiler Brothers'  furniture house of Victoria, has been in  Nelson endeavoring to sell, bar fittings  from his Victoria hou��e direct' to the  users instead of to the trade. Sub-Section  12 of section I, of the Trader's License Bylaw, required a license fee of $50 for each  six months,'but Ellis neglected to take,'  out any license, and the prosecution- followed. ' This subsection reads:  "12. livery person who, either- on his  own behalf, or as agent for another or  others, sells, solicits, or takes orders for .  the sale by retail, of goods, wares or merchandise, to be supplied or furnished by  any person or firm doing business outside ���  of the municipality, fifty dollars forevery.  six months."  The defendant's counsel, A. M. Johnson,  asked for a non-suit when the evidence  for the prosecution was put in, upon the  ground that it had not been shown that  the defendant was attempting to sell by  retail. In support of this he quoted a  judgment of the late chief justice Begbie, , .  in which the chief justice held that it was  fallacy to assume that the common definition of a retailer, which was but a definition of a class of retailers, was the proper definition. The magistrate refused  the application for a non-suit, aud the defence then put Ellis in the box. who testified that F. Simpson was a retail trader  who sold meats, tinware, crockery, groceries, and general provisions.  To John Elliot, who appeared for the  prosecution, Ellis admitted that he had  attempted to sell Simpsou furniture for  his hotel in this city. ' The city solicitor  then quoted a recent judgmeut of justice  Drake, in which heapplied the definition  that a wholesale merchant dealt with the  trade and that a retail merchant dealt  direct with the consumer.  Magistrate Crease expressed the opinion  that it was a clear case of violation of the  by-law. He imposed a fine of $25 with  the $o0 license fee added, with two months  imprisonment in case of default. The  fine was paid.  KOOTBNAY'S   MINERAL   EXPORTS.

The , directors of the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital came down off their  perch Tuesday morning and did not try  conclusions with the corporation of the  city of Nelson with respect to the ownership of the city waterworks. When the  case of George Stephenson was called before magistrate Crease, a plea of guilt3r  was entered, and Stephenson was fined  $5 and costs. Stephenson, acting under  instructions from the' hospital, directors,  made free with water works mains, cutting out connections made by the water  commissioner, and turning on water to  the hospital when it had been shun off by  the commissioner. The hospital authorities made a bluff at fighting the case on  Saturday and Monday, but when ir. came  before the magistrate finally, they threw  ui> the sponge and a plea of guilty was  entered on Stephenson's behalf.  Eugene Storer Arrests Himself.  Kugene \V. Storer, a miner from the  (.'out Kiver mining district, arrived in  Nelson this week armed with a warrant  for his own arrest and gave himself up to  the authorities. The warrant upon which  Storer arrested himself charged him with  assaulting James A. Mulroney on June 1st,  on the Hannah mineral claim, 2.S miles  west of Ilykert's, near the boundary. The  warrant was sent to Charlie Rykert for  service and while he was holding it Storer  came in and gave himself up. Rykert  turned the warrant over to Storer and  the latter arrested himself and came on  to Nelson and was lodged in jail. His  case was remanded till August Mnl in  order that four witnesses may be brought  from liykert's. The offence with which  Storer is charged is punishable with three  years imprisonment.

G. B. Alar-  tin h,as been looking into the merits  of  the several grievances oi' the citizens of  Nelson againstthe provincial government.  The result has  been that he has  found  that   the   people   of   Nelson   are   fairly  reasonable beings, and the people of Nelson for their part have formed the opinion  that they have not much to fear from the  chief commissioner's actions when he is  made   acquainted   with   all  the  circumstances.   Having looked over the ground  and   familiarized ��� himself   with  the circumstances in the squatters difficulty, the  commissioner has ceased to  breathe war.  It is more than likely that he will recommend  a plan for  the settlement of this  diffculty   which    will   satisfy    everyone  save   those    who    have   counted   upon  getting something for nothing.   The commissioner will probably recommend that  a fair valuation be placed upon  tho lots  upon which residents have squatted, and  that the squatters be given the chance to  purchase the same at this valuation. This  is evidently the fairest  way out of the  difficulty,  and   would   be   much    better  politics than the plan of ejectment suggested by the squatters' bill passed before  the close of the last session.  With respect  to the sale of government town lots, the'  commissioner is of the opinion that the  present is the time to offer the government property for sale, and au auction of  the same may be expected as soon as the  terms for the settlement of the squatters'  difficult5r  are   agreed   upon.    From   the  prospective results of the chief commissioner trip to Nelson, it is suggested that  it would be desirable for cabinet ministers  to take a run through the Kootenay district once and a while and inform themselves with respect to the graver local issues   when   they   arise.     Ministers then  would  make fewer mistakes   than they  , do at present in blindly accepting the advice of resident government agents who  may not be free from bias.  Tuk people of Fort Steele are now being called upon to pay the price of their  indifference, which was a contributing  factor in the election of colonel James  Baker to the provincial legislature. During the general elections in 1S9-J, the electors of East Kootenay were bribed with  their own money. Colonel Baker, being a  government supporter, secured larger appropriations for Fast Kootenay than an  opposition member could hope to secure,  and the people returned him to represent  the district for another four years. Since  then colonel Baker's personal interests  have clashed with those of the property  holders of Fort Steele, and the interests  of the people of Fort Steele are to be sacrificed to colonel Baker's real estate interests in the townsite of Oranbrook. Kort  Steele is an established town while Ci-an-  . brook is a townsite on paper. To boom  his townsite, colonel Baker proposes to  move the government offices from Kort  Steele to Cran brook.- If premier Turner  wishes to turn colonel Baker down as a  meddlesome and incompetent colleague,  he should lose no time. The electors of  East Kootenay will take the job out of  the premier's hands if the turning down  process is delayed till the next general  elections.          Hon. G. B. Martin, premier Turner's  chief commissioner of lands and works,  was interviewed this week upon the subject of rumored changes in the cabinet, by  which colonel Baker and himself are to be  dropped to make way for Messrs. 'Booth  and Smith. The chief commissioner professed   to    know   nothing   of   any   such  changes.   The most improbable  part of  the story is that Messrs."33ooth and Smith  are to be taken into the cabinet.   Neither  of them have the necessary qualifications  for the ollice, nor sufficient backbone to  act upon their own   convictions   should  they be at all displeasing to the  power  which gave, them of/ice.    Another  objection to the change would be that it would  leave but one minister with a mainland'  constituency.    For  this  reason it is  not  likely that Martin  will be dropped.    He  is not so  meddlesome  as colonel  Baker,  and has no fads-to entangle .the cabinet  with, and for this reason is not so objectionable in the cabinet as the owner of  the; Gran brook townsite.   With respect to  colonel  Baker,  it  would   be  difficult  for  premier Turner to pick  out a  man  who  would not fill the ollice.more acceptably  than   the   colonel   does  himself.    In   the  case  of Martin,'while it cannot be said  that he is a very clever politician,'he is  certainly a much abler man than  either  Mr.   Booth   or   Mr.   Smith.    He  is   fairly  popular in his own constituency, and  unless   premier   Turner   can    find  someone  more capable of filling his place, it is not  likely that the chief commissioner will be  disturbed.     _   _____  Tin-: decision of the corporation of the  city of Nelson to locate the water works  reservoir in the townsite addition owned  by the Nelson City L-tnd 6c Development  Company, has had an appreciable effect  upon the market price of the lots .in the  aforesaid addition. Some six weeks ago  this townsite company held an auction  sale of the addition property. At this  sale the bidder was allowed to pick the  most desirable lots in the entire addition,  and under these conditions the best price  realized was S50 per lot. Six weeks later,  when the corporation of the city of Nelson requires seven lots for its reservoir,  Joshua Davies, the company's managing  director, increases the price from  $o0 per lot to $2o0 for corners and  $200 for insides.' At this rate of increase, the corporation of the city of Nelson must have added several thousand  dollars to the value of the Nelson City  Lane! & Development company's addition.  Tin-: provincial government has appointed O. G. Dennis gold commissioner for  the southern half of the district of West  Kootenay. O. G. Dennis has been in the  government employ for several years,  having recently filled the position of government assessor for the distract, with  headquarters at Kaslo. Dennis is an efficient officer, and he is regarded as a Kootenay man, two things which will go far  to make the appointment popular. Heretofore the government has proceeded upon  the assumption that the people of Kootenay required to be officered b3r pauperized Englishmen from Victoria. Premier  Turner is to be congratulated upon this  change in policy.  Men who go to the Yukon and strike it  rich will make no end of noise. Men who  go to the Yukon and do not strike it rich  will be dead and make no noise at all, and  hence the excitement will not subside in  a hurry.    Victor Michael Kuthvidn, who has  been faking the coast cities as a proselyted  Roman Catholic priest was arrested this  week on a charge of selling an indecent  and obscene book entitled Crimes of Romish Priests, it is a rather sad commentary upon church people, that their taste  for. lewd literature is so strongly developed that a creature like Ruthven finds it  profitable to peddle his dirty books  around the province.

While some seizures are being made on  shore, the pirates of the gulf have everything practically their own way. With  the steam cruiser Constance continually  on the lookout for the smugglers, and  with lines of telegraph along rhe north  and south shores of the river and gulf,  the government is thus far quite powerless to check the evil. Some idea of the  enormous extent of the smugglers' operations may be gained from the fact that  notwithstanding the higher duties upon  alcoholic liquors, and the certainty that  there is no decrease in their consumption,  tliediiiiiniitiou in revenue from thissotuce  amounts to several thousand dollars a  day. Many think that the revenue officials are in collusion with the princip.il  smugglers, whose chiefs are known to be  some of the leading business men in Quebec��� merchants who have made large for-  tiirn-s in .the illicit industry, hold their  head** remarkably high in checouitnunity,  .'mil have been honoied by the government with offices of emolument" under the  crown. This belief is strengthened by the  fact that ii') prosecutions have ever been  against   these  people of the  carried  on  government. The increase in the liquor  duties simply enables these people to increase their profits upon their illegal  transactions.  Within the last year or two the smugglers have.changed their methods. The  high class .French wines, brandies, etc.,  come from French ports to the'island of  St. Pierre Miquelou, in the Gulf of St.  Lawrence, and that island being a French  colony, has ho import duty to pay. Large  quaii tities of .Jamaica rum aud other West  Indian liquors are brought from Trinidad,  Bermuda and Jamaica. Cheaply distilled  white whiskey made from American corn  ..is.taken to St. Pierre by England fishing  vessels on their way to Newfoundland or-  the gulf for cargoes of fish. This is . the  cheapest and lowest grade of the contraband goods at present received at St.  Pierre, though a very low grade of French  alcohol now finds its way there. Large  American carrying schooners call at St.  Pierre for cargoes of liquors, aud in the  Gulf of St. Lawrence transfer them to a  number of smaller craft, all swift sailers,  nhd generally carrying crews armed to  the teeth, who pay no attention to the  'summons of the. revenue officers along  the coast, or in charge of other sailing  craft, and who almost invariably evade  an-encounter-with the; Constance. The  Constance does not; often seek such encounters, and some time ago, when armed  resistance was made to her officers by a  smuggler named Bouchard, she hurried  back to Quebec for a field piece and a  squad of artillery to aid her in storming  the smuggler's stronghold.  After cargoes have been transshipped  into smaller vessels, they are landed and  concealed in out of the way places along  the shores of the gulf until an opportunity  oIters of bringing them in small quantities to the city in river boats below their  ordinary cargoes of fish, fire-wood or  farm produce. Thus when seizures are  made they are usually small'ones, while  the profit of the smugglers is so large  that they can well afford to lose one cargo  out of every three leaving St. Pierre.

The Canadian Pacilic Railway company's round-house at Revelstoke caught  fire Tuesday evening and was partially  destroyed. " A , rotary snow-plow was  burned and three locomotives were badly  damaged.  Auother cross-lead has been encountered  in the Fern. It: is of decomposed quartz  about four feet wide and assays high in  gold. The -framework of the Fern's new  20-stamp "mill is up and superintendent  Veitch is of the opinion that the mill will  be in running order by the first of October.  1). Morris, of Morris, McLean <fc Co. of  this city, has been engaged by the corporation of the city of Rossland as consulting engineer on public works. Mortis  will take a run down to Rossland on  Monday.  TV. A. Macdonald, who was appointed  a member of the board of licensing commissioners for this city, made his first appearance at the board(meeting on Thursday, if Thursday's session of the board  is any criterion the three commissioners  will get along well together despite the  friction occasioned by their appointment.  . "Wings" Wilkinson, of the Vancouver  World, has made his way to London.  Where "Wings'" is altogether unknown,  as he would be in Fngland, it would be  interesting to listen to his talk.  The corporation of , Nelson has not  closed with the Canada Permanent Loan  ifc Savings society for the sale of the public works debentures. The society offered  9G per cent, of thefa.ee value of the corporation bonds, or $48,000 net for the $50,-  - 000 bonds at five per cent. This was satisfactory to the city, but when the mayor  and the company's agent got down ro details the loan company sought to ring in  its solicitor's charges for examining into  the validity of the loan issue. The corporation refused to entertain any such  proposition in connection witha net offer..  ' The company was given a few days to  consider whether it wanted the bonds for  $48,000 or not. It is immaterial to the  city whether this company takes them or  not, as another purchaser lias since put  in an appearance.  G. R. R.obson, manager of the Hudson's  Bay company's store, is accompanying  J. Ogden Grahame on his trip, through  the Slocan.  David Wilson, provincial school inspector, was in Nelson this week on official  business. IT the inspector's views were  carried out Nelson would not go short of  school facilities.  The total receipts of the corporation of  Nelson up to this morning, amount to $."),-  023.45.  The police commissioners spent a couple  of hours on Thursday in drafting rules  and regulations for the government of  the city police. They will take final  action upon the same on Monday. The  commissioners decided to communicate  with the boards of Victoria, Vancouver  and New Westminster, for the purpose of  ascertaining whether or not they certify  to the police pay rolls in their cities. This  subject was introduced by Mayor Houston, who held that as the police commissioners appointed the men and fixed their  salaries they should certify to their pay  rolls before the council was called, upon  to pay them. The commissioners will  follow the practice prevailing in the coast  cities.  Dr. R. Mathison has engaged the front  office in George Xeelands' new building on  Baker street, and will open a dental office  as soon as the building is completed.  Nelson is fast getting down to civilization's level. On Wednesday police magistrate Crease fined Joseph Sturgeon $1 for  riding a horse over the Baker street bridge  at a faster rate than a walk. For exceeding the eight mile an hour pace on the  public streets Sturgeon was fined $2 and  costs. Edward Ranch was charged with  the same offences, and contributed like  sums to the municipal exchequer.  Drummond Ross, James fJurkin and  Daniel Sinclair were before.-magistrate  Crease'this week on. charges of creating  disturbances by being drunk. The first  two'were assessed $10 and costs, with the  option of serving for fourteen days as the  nucleus of the Nelson chain gang. Daniel  Sinclair for a similar offense, was fined $5  and costs, or one week's imprisonment.  The failure of the.lohn Faton Company's  big departmental store will pinch a number of the residents of Nelson who had  forwarded money to the Toronto firm for  .cheap.'goods. Tf every departmental store  in Canada were to fail, it would be so  much better for the people of Canada.  For such residents of Nelson who lost  money by the Faton failure there is no  sympathy owing. The sooner the people  ���of Nelson makeup their minds to do all  their trading with the local merchants,  the sooner will the local merchants be enabled to carry stocks equal to''those carried by the merchants of Toronto and the  other eastern cities. Nelson merchants  cannot pay rent and running expenses if  the citizens of Nelson send away for evevy-  In order to sell what Shirt Waists we have left in Stock,  we have reduced same to-  75, $I.OO, $1.25  WORTH $1.25, $1.75, $2.00  aker  thing save their needles and thread.  Fvery dollar that i** sent out of Nelson to  a cheap trader or merchant is a dollar lost  to the town, and the people should try  and remember it.  A meeting of the license commissioners  was held Thursday afternoon, at which  saloon licenses were granted to W. A.  McVeigh, for the Crown Cafe on Josephine street, and Messrs. Smart and Calkin  for their saloon on Vernon street. Robert  Hurry having complied with the provisions of the statutes, was granted a restaurant license. Miss M. Duffy's restaurant  license was withheld until she complied  with the statute requirements. McMahon  & Lvidd, who applied for a restaurant  license for their Baker street restaurant,  were notified to the same effect.  Tenders were opened this week for the  superstructure of one of the large buildings now in course of erection in Nelson.  The lowest tender was in the neighborhood of $14,000 and the highest $20,000.  Engineer Berry, of the Slocan River  branch road, says work is progressing  faster than he expected, and that if given  au engine by the mouth of August he will  begin track laying from the Slocan crossing end.    About 700 men are at work.  The Vernon & Nelson Telephone Company has commenced construction on the  telephone line from Nelson to Trail and  Bossland via Robson. At Rossland connection will be made with the long distance telephone system to Spokane. There  are about 25 men engaged upon the work.  A daughter was born to the wife of  James Christian last week. On Tuesday  a daughter was born to the wife of Mr.  Mclvay, who is employed by the A. Macdonald company.  The big blast furnace in the Hall Mines  smelter was blown in at 0 o'clock this  morning. The furnace has a capacity of  250 tons per day, so that it will keep the  mine superintendent busy getting out  ore. It is running upon Silver King ore  exclusively.  George TV. Brown was charged before  magistrate Crease this morning with a  breach of the fire limits by-law. The defendant was represented by TV. A. Macdonald. who took several.technical objections to the manner in which the charge  was drawn by chief constable TVolverton.  The magistrate decided to give the bylaw a chance, however, and allowed two  amendments to be made to the charge.  The case occupied the best part of a couple of hours. Judgment was reserved till  Monday. One proposition made by the  defendant's counsel was that the present  case should be dropped and that proceedings should .be taken simultaneously  against all who are violating the ordinance.  The tenders for the provincial jail were  opened today. There were six or seven  tenders put in, the tenderers residing in  Victoria as well as in Nelson. The contract will probably be let next week. The  chief commissioner has not yet made up  his mind where the jail will be located.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  eight men upon the property, and talk of  putting in a power plant.
