FIFTH 'YEAR---NO. 28.  NELSON"   BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, L897.  rn  rWO  DOLLARS. A YEAR.  ���THE   ST.   MARY'S   COUNTRY.  Over-  Sixty Prospectors - are Now Camped  Waiting for the Snow to tfo.  Thomas Brown, of Pilot Buy, was in  Nelson this week on his way to Kurt  Steele via Bonner's Kerry. . He will .spend  the coming .summer in looking over tho  country between Port Steele and Kootenay hike iii the interest- of an eastern  Canadian syndicate  "Tom" is of the opinion that the district  along the west branch of tlie St."Mary's  river will receive a great deal of attention  this spring. The mineral deposits of the  , district wero first made known by Henry  Hose and his partners, who are said to  have upwards of 2*5 claims scattered over  it. Prospecting is fairly easy ns the country is high and it is easy to get above the  timber. There are fully 00 prospectors at  present camped at Sawyer's pass and on  the Fort Steele trail waiting for the snow  to leave.    .  The ledges are generally strong, but in  some cases the ore is rather below the  grade of Slocan ores, and this added to  tlie difficulties in the way of transportation will no doubt keep the district back  for some time. Jt will be a district for  strong companies to operate in rather  than for individual miners. Brown spent  last fall in the district, and in his opinion  the copper showing upon what is commonly called the Spaulding group, is the  greatest in West lvootenay. Upon these  claims a mammoth ledge runs east of  north. It has been crosscut upon the  surface and is fully 75 feet wide. The  ledge is of quartz aud copper pyrites, and  appears to be all mineralized. Where  blown oil" in prospecting, the rock aver-,  ages lo per cent copper, und carries small  values in silver and gold. The chief difficulty to be overcome with this group is  transportation, and I'or this reason the  owners arc considering an offer of purchase from Spokane people upon a basis  of $10,000 for rhe group.  The richest find reported is on a claim  in Lhe Matthews group, located by Matthews. Brooks and five others. It was  discovered in September last and i.s under  bond to American mining men. Very  little work has as yet been done upon the  property, but tlie ore that lias been taken  from the ledge is very rich. It is a grey  copper ore similar to that from the White  ('rouse mountain claims, assays from  which have given -ISO ounces in silver and  $.-50 in gold besides the copper values.  Not far-from this group is the Urquhurt  group of seven claims, tlie locators of  which were Messrs. I 'rquhart, Millicau.  Houghton Brothers, Brown. Praucis and  O'Brien. The first location in this group  was made upon a seven foot showing of  galena, running alongside of. which was a  seven foot ledge of quartz strongly impregnated with copper. (An average  sample of the galena ledge gave a return  of $10 in silver. This group has been examined and reported upon on behalf of  London parties,'and if they decide to take  hold of it they will be strong enough to  solve the transportation problem for  tttemselves.  There are a great many other locations  in the vicinity, which probably''have an  equal value, but so long as the present  transportation difficulties exist little more  than assessment work can be expected.  There is a large area Of country between  the creeks of the St. Mary's and St. Mary's  lakes and north to the Canadian Pacific  railway, which has not yet been touched  by the prospector.  THE   CROW'S   NEST   ROAD  "Will" Receive a  Bonus and  the  Canadian   Pacific Company will Build it at Once.  The Crow's Nest Pass railway was discussed in a full liberal caucus oh Wednesday, when the government made an au-  annouueement that it had closed an arrangement with the Canadian Pacific  Railway company for tlie construction of  the railway from Lethbridge to Nelson,  and would stand or fall by the bargain.  Minister Blair announced- the terms of  the arrangement. It called for the payment by the government of $11,000 per  mile in return for which the railway company gave certain concessions. First it  gave a large cut in freight rates on special  articles, a list of which was in the possession of the government. On wheat this  cut would amount to \l cents per 100  pounds next year and an additional 1/,  cents per pound the following year. On  fruit going west there will be a cut of 33;1,  per rent. .On agricultural implements  there is a cut of 10 per cent in rates. The  government will have control of this list  of rates west of Fort William. The railway conipany also agrees to give to the  government 50,000 acres of its land grant  of 2*50,000 acres of coal lands awarded to  the British Col.umbia Southern. This  50,000 acres will be selected in small blocks,  the government having the first choice of  a block and the company the second  choice, on the checker board plan. There  will be no monopoly in coal lands. Besides this the conipany ���cannot sell coal  for a higher price than $2 per ton free on  board the cars, and at no time can it  charge more than 7*5 cents per ton profit.  It is understood that other roads will  have running powers through the pass.  Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney Alone to Blame.  The Victoria Times' Ottawa correspondent telegraphs' that there is no truth in  the report that has been circulated from  Arictoria that lieutenant-governor Dewdney was advised from Ottawa not to give  assent to the alien labor bill. Lieutenant-  governor Dewdney did apply to Ottawa  asking what he should do, but the gov  ernment refused to give any advice until  such time as the matter ca,me before them  officially. Mr. Dewdney actedon his own  responsibility or that of the local government.  THOSE   VICTORIAN   NUESES.  SHORT   BITS   OF   NEWS    PROM   KASLO.  Approximate  Tons.

The Doctor's Journal Pokes Some Fun at Lady  Aberdeen's Scheme.  Lady Aberdeen is not hayinK..anything  like a walk-over in' the establishment of  the Victorian order of nurses. The Canadian Practitioner of Toronto, gives the  scheme considerable attention in a recent  issue. To those ladies of Nelson and of  Kaslo who have taken up lady Aberdeen's  scheme, the comments of the Practitioner  will'ho doubt be interesting:  It is thought by some worthy people  that    Canadians    should    commemorate  queen  Victoria's diamond jubilee by establishing a national fund for the purpose  of placing the aid of trained nurses within  the reach of all classes.    At a meeting of  the executive committee of the National  Council of Women, held under the (-presidency of her excellency, the countess of  Aberdeen,   the   subject    was   discussed.  Since  that   meeting a  scheme has  been  adopted and presented for the eonsidera-,  tiou   of- the   public.   The   committee in  charge have asked for the small sum of  $1,000,000 for the purpose of educating, or  more   probably   half  educating,   a   new  band of nurses who are to supplement the  work of our trained nurses by nursing at  half rates, quarter rates or no rates at all.  The new cheap nurses are not to interfere with the trained nurses, and yet they  are   to    be    paid  a  "modest,  moderate  salary," which will lift them out of the  precarious state ol: "waiting for a case."  They are to be gentle and strong, endowed  with sympathy, a delicate  touch, and a  charm possessing a virtue beyond that of  any drug.   Their qualifications (ire to be  of the highest class.    They are to  work-  in sparsely settled outlying country districts, villages, towns, cities, and everywhere, fro in Labrador to British Columbia. All this and many other things about  these sweet creatures of the ncur future  we learn from a little pamphlet published  by the committee.    The work of the committee is thus  mapped  out.    It is  to (1)  draft a constitution, (2) decide how  the  governing body of the new order is to be  chosen, (A) determine how the work to be  undertaken shall be carried on.  Some there are'who have doubts as to  the practicability of this lofty scheme.  As our hospitals are now manufacturing  nurses at such a rate that the supply is  more than enough to meet all demands, it  is wondered how aud when the new order  is to, be manufactured. We. understand  from the pamphlet that such trifling details are to be settled by. a committee  chosen by vice-patrons, vice-presidents,  and representatives of the subscribers.  Certain parties who have had considerable experience think it not a very simple  matter to train nurses in well ordered  hospitals, where the candidates are not  only required to receive instruction from  their teachers, but also to spend two or  three years in the laborious practical  work under rigid discipline. Such people  also think that the new order of nurses  cannot be properly educated: and, at the  same time, they believe that competent  professional nurses should be .encouraged  and protected from the warfare of unqualified nurses, just as physicians and  lawyers are protected from the rivalry of,  of the irregular in both professions.  It must be understood that.many of  those who have their doubts about this  new order have the greatest possible respect for the many noble women, whether  belonging to sisterhoods or uot/who are  in a quiet way doing much to relieve  human suffering. They also sympathize  with professional nurses in the good work  they are doing, and wish them the highest  success. But, at the same time, they  have no desire to see an influx of half-  educated go-betweens-���neither amateurs  nor professionals, as we understand the  words���who are likely to injure nursing  asa profession withoutacconiplishing any  great amount of good. If the good people  who favor the new scheme could present  something practical and tangible,' ib  might be-more easy to form an intelligent  opinion about the matter.  Matte and Ore Shipments,  There was entered for export at the  port of Nelson during the past week ore  and matte to the value of $20,7(i!), There  were no exports entered from the Trail  Creek smelter and the Slocan shipments  were also light.

Menzie��, of Sandon,  were ordained as ministers of the Presbyterian church. The reverend T. S. Glass-  ford, moderator of the Kamloops Presbytery presided at ordination service,  and was assisted by the reverend J. Raton,  of Grand Forks, who delivered a short  sermon. The address to the newly ordained clergyman was given by the moderator and that to the congregation by  the reverend J. Wilson, of Vernon. There  were also present tho reverend R. L. McLeod, of Spallumacheen, and Mr. Dawes,  elder of the church at Nelson.  The Kokanee's trip to Lardo and Argenta, at the head of Kootenay lake last  Monday was made the occasion for a,picnic in which several ladies and gentlemen  participated. Several musicians were of  the party and an impromptu dance in the  saloon gave additional /.est to the entertainment. A moonlight excursion on tho  lirst convenient occasion is on the cards  as the next society function.  Workmen have been engaged during  the week in laying the water pipes line  along Fourth street, between Front and  A avenue. This will complete the distribution system in the more thickly popu-  " lated portion of the city.  Thomas Erickson, a Finlander, on Thursday reported the loss of his partner on a  prospecting trip. He left Sproule's on  Tuesday to return to his' camp at the  head of Schroeder creek,'but not having  arrived, his partner became alarmed, and  came down to see if he had reached the  railroad and found his way into town.  Manager McClurg, of the Union club,  gave a dance to the members of the club  and their lady friends in the newly opened  club-rooms on Wednesday evening. The  rooms were not overcrowded and the  function was one of the pleasantest that  has ever taken place in the city.  John A. Whittier, president of the  Gpodenongh mines, has purchased the  residence of W. IS. Manu on B avenue,  and will occupy it. Mr. Mann's family  will remove to Spokane.  1 fc it said that a party of eastern gentlemen was inspecting the townsite of Argenta on Monday, with a view of purchasing. This point is coming somewhut  into notice as the starting place of those  Biing from  the Kootenay lake into the  uucan river couutry.  When the tug Idaho failed to make the  attempt to ascend the Lower Duncan  river the other day it was said that the  project had been abandoned. It now  seems that it willagain.be tried under  the guidance of Sam Lnvatt, who believes  he can "make the riffle."  The steamer International met with a  slight accident to some portion of her machinery on Wednesday morning, and was  not able to start at the usual time. Telegrams were forwarded to'the'.-Nelson 6c  Fort Sheppard authorities, asking them  to await her arrival. The train pulled  out, however, at the usual hour and several passengers for Spokane were obliged  to wait over for the day in Nelson.  The base ball games of the Kootemiy-  Washington league series, played on  Wednesday and Thursday by the Ross-  laud and Kaslo nines were both won by  the home team. In the first the score was  II to A in favor of Kaslo, aud in the second 9 to zero. Both-games were well attended. The first day's game was pitched  by Bqrchess for Kaslo aud was an exhibition of the art to most present such as  they had rarely seen. In the contest the  balance was in favor of the home players  from the start. Kaslo scored 11 hits and  were chargeable with 5 errors, while the  Rossland boys made 7 hits with 5 errors.  The second day's game was quite exciting.  Goffman pitched for Kaslo and Baker for  Rossland, Davey catching for the home  team and Holland for its opponent. This  day's play was studded with features.  Clark's running catch against fence saved  A meson's two-base hit and was loudly applauded. Green played exceptionally  well on Third base. Both Baker and Goffman pitched well, but the former was  well supported in the field, while theHatter's support was poor. Davey caught  well, but held Coffmah better than he did  Borchers. There was some heavy batting  by the Kaslo team, which won the game  the second day.        .      '  Wednesday Evening's Meeting.  An adjournodi regular meeting of the  council was held in the fire hall Wednesday evening, all the members being present except alderman Dow.  A communication was received from 10.  B. McNairn, asking for an allowance for  filling done on Baker aud Hall streets.  The communication was received and  filed.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Gilker, the following accounts were allowed: The Canadian Pacific Telegraph company, $10.44: Spencer  6c Ball, $7.50: Nelson Blacksmith Company, $1.50.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Fletcher, the council  went into committee of the whole to consider the "Trades License By-law, No. S,  1807." Alderman Fletcher was called tithe chair, and the by-law was rear I section  by section. On motion of mayor Houston,  the committee rose and reported progress.  On motion of alderman Teet/.el, seconded by alderman Gilker, it was resoved,  that the by-law be further considered at  the next meeting, which was set for the  following evening.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  J. C, Ka-ton, C. G. Dixon and II. .1. Ilurd  have registered a1'prospecting agreement  with Charles Kennedy, by which he is to  receive a quarter interest iu all locations,  and a certain monthly payment. These  agreements are in accordance with recent  legislation introduced into the. mineral  act, and are instead of the verbal understandings whicli have hitherto prevailed.  Two Swedes, Charles Bellesturn and  Ben Peterson, have located two mineral  claims, the St. Paul and I_ntorpri.se on the  south fork of Kaslo creek, about four  miles above the Silver Hell, which are  said to have richer surface showings than  The owners of mineral claims on Forty-  nine creek, above'the hydraulic company's  ground, are endeavoring to get the government to assist them in constructing  three miles of a trail. They are asking  the government lor .something like $.'.00  for provisions aud supplies, and propose  to put in their own labor. A short trail  of about three miles will serve about .'.0  claims. Little if any work has been done  upon tho properties, as the greater number of them was located last year, but  they are good prospects and the construction of the trail will enable the holders to  get in and open them up. It is likely that  the government will meet their wishes.  Justice Walkem, of bhe supreme court,  arrived in the city this week and will re--,  main here till the close of the assi/.e court,  which opens during the latter half of the  month.  J. Fred Humethis week cashed in over  $1000 to the provincial government for  back payments upon government town  lots'.  The regular meeting of the ladies' hospital aid will beheld on Monday afternoon  at 3 o'clock, in the Church of England.  The Hall Exploration company is working ten men on the Chapleau in the Slocan.  The property is developing well.  John Humer has returned to Nelson  from Port Steele. He says that the country is full of prospectors, and that everyone expects the district to make a big  move this summer, but he did not like  the place well enough to locate. On his  way back he went in to Ferguson, the  new town iu the Lardeau district, located  about IS miles back from Thompson's  lauding, aud was so favorably impressed  that he purchased a lot and decided to  locate there. There are several wealthy  syndicates operating in the immediate  vicinity of Ferguson, and several of their  properties give promise of making good  mines. Ferguson real estate is ou the  move, and Humer was compelled to pay  $3t0 cash for an inside lot. The wagon  road to the mines has been completed,  and it is reported that the Lillooet, Fraser  River & Cariboo company will put three  hundred men to work upon their different  properties during the present month.  Several other companys will work large  forces.  At Thursday evening's meeting of the  city council it \vas"decided to dpen'"Carbonate street, between -Jo-ephine and  Stanley streets, for teams. The trade license by-law, streets and sidewalks bylaw, dog tax and fire by-laws were put  through their final stages and fiually  passed.  The town of Revelstoke, which has been  at a standstill for several years, is beginning to feel the effect of the mineral development in the north of the district,  and what was for a long-time tliequietest  town in the province, has already much  of the bustle which characterizes the  cities of the south. With a genuine mining activity upon it and its real estate  tangle straightened out, the people of  Revelstoke have found something more  profitable than squabbling among themselves.  W. M. Leach, ex-city cleric of New  Whatcom, Washington, and an old newspaper man, is in the city, and will probably make Nelson his home.  The department of marine and fisheries  at Ottawa has favorably considered the  petition" forwarded by the master mariners on Kootenay lake, and will invite  tenders for the construction of 13 floating  kedge buoys to be placed on the outlet  and at the mouth of Kootenay river.  Plans and specifications will be on exhibition at the office of the collector of customs iu this city.  Provincial constable Wolverton left for  Vmir on foot last evening for the purpose  of arresting Malcolm McDonald,-who 'is  charged with shooting at R. A. Chisholm  with intent. McDonald is said to have  been endeavoring to collect a board bill  witha Winchester when the shooting occurred. The bull passed through Chis-  holin's clothes, but did no further injury.  The Daylight property on Toad mountain is making daily shipments of five  ton lots to the Hall mines smelter. The  ore goes about $.'.0 to the ton.  .1. A. Sawyard has secured nine acres of  land on the lake front at Bogustown and  will'immediately commence the erection  of a sawmill with a capacity of '.0,000 per  day.  .John Macready, a wholesale hardware  merchant of Tacouia. has secured a five  years lease of ground from .Jack Kirkpat-  rick and will put up a hardware store on  the north side of Baker street.  any of the valuable claims which  have  .recently been located in that vicinity.  John A. Redding, of Pilot Ray, has sold  to Mahsignor Henry hammelen an undivided seven-eighths in the mineral claim  Kootenay Star, situated about four miles  from Kootenay river and two miles east  of east side of Kootenay lake.  iMajor Montgomery, president of the  Washington    company,   left   Kaslo    on  Thursday, morning for Spokane, where  the .annual general meeting of the shareholders of the company will be held on  Monday. The Blue Bird Mining company  will also hold its annual general meeting  in the same city early next week. The  latter property, which has remained up-  worked for about two years, will be again  opened up during the present-season. It  is a valuable property.  Recent reports from the Lower Duncan  are to the effect that several promising  claims have recently been located on Glacier creek, which empties into the Duncan, two or three miles below Ilouser  lake. John Westerleng and Albert Johnson have recorded the Queen of the West  and Little John 113'. and show some rich  specimens of ore taken from the surface  croppings. D. Cosguff and John Ilavard,  with their partners, have also located  groups of claims, which have ledges from  eighteen to twenty feet in width.  .The B. N. A. Mining company is now  fully organized. R. P. Green has been  elected president of ,the company and  Lachlan McLean, vice president. C. D.  McKen/.ie will probably be secretary.  The capital stock of the company,is $_,-  000,000, divided into a like number of  shares of the pur value of $1. Three hundred thousand shares will be placed in  the treasury and issued to the public for  the present ar .10 cents per share. The  first block,of 5,000 shares was sold immediately upon tlie proper organization of  the company. The properties of this company immediately adjoin the well known  "Swede's claim" and tire undoubtedly  very valuable.  Foss   and   McDonnell  Tuesday last upon the  A   NEW   OFFICIAL   CREATED.  MeGuigan creek  wagon  began work on  extension of the  road  to the Best  and Cariboo-Rambler properties. They  expect to complete it during the month,  when the Best will begin shipping the  ore which has accumulated during devel-  ODine'nt work. The Cariboo-Rambler will  also have a considerable quantity ready  for shipment as soon as it can be profitably transported to'the Ka'slo "<fc Slocan  railway.   ���  Frederick Steele has conveyed to tho  Black Diamond Mining and Developing  company, the mineral claims Black Diamond and Little Donald, situated in the  Hot Spring*- camp, and formerly owned  by John F. Stevens, chief engineer of the  Great Northern railway.  AINSWORTH   NOTES.  ":' A couple of prospectors named Moulse  and Howser made an important strike  ou Coffee creek, about 10 miles west of  Ainsworth, and located a couple of claims,  the Glasgow and North Star. An assay  made from the croppings gave a return of  285 ounces silver and 50 per cent lead.  The find is about a mile south of the Olson  group, in which C. F. Olson, captain Hay-  ward and T. J. Lendrun are interested.  The claims are now being prospected.  Seven new strikes have been recently  made on the south fork of Woodbury  creek, and several outfits have left Ainsworth for this locality. The assays in  some instances were very high.  Drowning Accidents in Duncan River.  Two accidents are reported from the  Duncan river, one on the lower and the  other on the .upper portion of the river.  I.arly in the present'week an elderly man  by the name of Roome was drowned from  a boat. It appears that three prospectors-  were trying to make the passage between  Kootenay and Houser lakes where the  current is very rapid at the present stage  of water. Roome was in the bow of the  boat, and caught hold of a projecting  limb to pull'the boat over a rapid. By  some'means he was jerked from the boat  into the water. Before his partners could  recover their position he was borne away  by the current and could not be recovered. He was about 00 years of age, and  supposed to be from Spokane.  Ou Tuesday R. A. Hilton, of Three  Forks, reported that his partner. L. M.  Chappell was drowned in the Upper Duncan on the 20th of May. They were coming down the river on a small -raft which  struck a snag or sweeper. Both were  thrown into the current. Hilton managed to pull himself out, but Chappell  was borne to his death.

Adams,  though a government supporter, worked  hard to secure the passage of the bill and  succeeded in doing so by a large majority,  in spite of the opposition of the cabinet.  The only thing which  prevented it from  becoming law was the action of lieutenant-  governor Dewdney in withholding his assent   to   the   bill.     Adams   now   directs  Dewdney's attention to the circumstance  that the year before he assented to several bills which had similar provisions^ in  them.  These bills were passed by narrow  .majorities, whereas the one to which as-  ,  sent was withheld was passed by a vote  of 22 to S.   Adams  now   wants  to know  how  the   lieutenant-governor reconciles  his action.   The excuse offered for Dewdney's action is that he wished to consult  the   views   of   the   federal   government.  This is rather lame in as much as the federal government did not disallow the acts  of a similar nature passed during the previous session, to which Dewdney had assented, and further, iu view of the circumstance that the federal government could  have disallowed the act if it chose to do  so, even after lieutenant-governor Dewdney had assented to it.    The former bills  applied   chiefly   to    mining    companies,  whereas the one which Dewdney hung up  applied equally to railway and other companies. En at least one of these companies  lieutenant-governor Dewdney is a stockholder and director, and in the opinion of  a great.many  people, he killed  Adams'  bill because it might affect the construction of the Jleinze railway, in which he is  interested.   This   theory   is   less absurd  than than that offered iu which Dewdney  is represented as trying to avoid any embarrassment for the federal government,  though it may not be so creditable to the  lieutenant-governor.  PW'LMIEK Tl-knei. has gone to Ottawa  on public business. I tis generally stated  that his chief mission will be to try and  persuade the federal government to aid  the railway scheme being engineered by  F. Aug Pleinze, the provincial government's pampered pet. Premier Turner  tried hard to induce the provincial legislature to bonus Hein/.e to the extent of  $���100,000 and 2,000,000 acres of land for  building 100 miles of railway, but even  ids nominal following of two to one in ���  the legislature was not strong enough for  this additional evidence of favoritism, it  remains to be seen what view the federal  government will take of the proposition  to subsidize'Mr. Heinze's railway.  Tiik press dispatches announce that the  alien, labor bill was reported by the committee at Ottawa on Tuesday, and as the  government has signified its intention of  supporting the measure it may be that  the bill will pass the commons. From the  announcement which has been made that  the bill will only be made to apply to residents of the United States it may be  taken that it is intended as a purely retaliatory measure. That it will be enforced even after its passage does not follow unless some further cause for provocation i.s given the dominion government  by the United States officials in the enforcement ot its alien labor act against  Canadians. A copy of this Canadian bill  appeared in The Tkiiicnu of April 17th,  and as no amendments to the same have,  been announced it is not likely that the  provisions of the bill have been materially  altered. The meat of the bill as originally presented was .contained in the following section: "No male alien shall be  " employed in any public works of or in  " the dominion of Canada, or come regn-  " larly or habitually into Canada, by land  " or water, for the purpose of engaging  " in any, mechanical ti'fide or manna]  " labor, for wages or salary, returning  " from time to time to another country."  This clause would open the door to very  harsh and in-neighborly treatment of the  Americans working in the district of West  Kootenay were it not that the sentiment  of the district is opposed to any such  thing. In the east, where Canadians  working in the border cities of the United  States have been subjected to all manner  of petty persecutions there may be a desire for retaliatory measures, but this spirit  it is not likely to manifest itself in the  west. Aliens will no doubt be debarred  from employment upon public works of  every description, but it is not to be feared  that any effort will be made to prevent  them from working for wages anywhere  in the west. As it is provided that the  act when it becomes law, can only be enforced by the attorney-general of the Dominion, it is no doubt the intention of the  government to shut out anything in the  way of petty persecutions, while, should  local conditions justify it, the provisions  of the act could be put into effect in any  given locality.  Tin-: people of Nelson and of West Kootenay will be pleased to learn that an  understanding has been arrived at between the federal government and the  Canadian Pacific Railway company with  respect to the immediate building of the  Crow's Nest road by the Canadian Pacific  company. , The full text of, the agreement  between the government and the railway  company has not yet reached this province, but from such outlines as have  been telegraphed it appears to. be a very  satisfactory one. The government on the  one hand agrees to bonus the railway line  to the extent of $11,000 per mile covering  the entire distance from Lethbridge to  this city, and receives in return from the  railway ' company one-fifth of its coal  lands in the Crow's Nest and an under-'  taking to amend freight rates on its entire  system of railways, it is understood that  work will be commenced by the company  at. once. In tho opinion of most people  the construction of this railway is practically all that is wanting to place the  mining and smelting industry of this province firmly upon its feet.  Tin-] construction of the Crow's Nest  railway will have a noticeable effect upon  the city of Nelson. There can be no question but that this road will make Nelson  the hub of West Kootenay. This will no  doubt mean an immediate stiffening in  real estate values, and will establish the  wisdom of those who several years ago  purchased Nelson realty at what was then  considered unwarranted figures. Jt will  be interesting to note the affect the assurance of the immediate construction of  this road will have upon the next auction  sale of town lots.

'Tis nob alone on fields like Waterloo,  Sedan or Gettysburge that the supremest  tragedies of life are enacted.    Ah, no!  Sometimes in our own hearts, sometimes  in our own dining-rooms, sometimes in  our own barrooms, sometimes in our own  churches, sometimes in our own chambers  there are struggles I'or the mastery which  bring out all the qualities transmitted to  us by the ape and tiger.  ' i have read much, indeed J have seen  much, but J never read of a row, a struggle so magnificent and so desperate and  brimming with so much pluck and venom  as the battle I witnessed last Monday.  Alay mine eyes never rest upon the like  again!  As you know, and the world knows, I  live in Tattletown. a typical country village, small, mayhap, and not famous, but  a little world in itself, with its tragedies  and its comedies, its tears and laughter  and it's all sorts of men. Home day J may  introduce you to the village liar, the village saint, the village joker, the village  philosopher, the village ass, the village,  dude, the village tough, the village pooh  bah, the village sneak and tlie rest'of  them; but,jti**t now 1 am full of the great  battle of Tattletown, and until, in fear of  battle, murder or sudden death, to which  we are all more or less liable, I put the  facts on 'paper I will neither feed, sleep  nor work! [  The parties who are the chief actors in  this drama are tlie best people on earth,  ladies upon whom the breath of scandal  has never blown aud who up to last Sunday were the best of friends. MKsus  Jones, Missus Smith and Missus .Robinson  were a sort of three-cornered, scratch-my-  back-and-ril-scratch-yourssocitey. They  were running back and forward all the  time. Mrs. Smith would borrow a dress  pattern from Missus Jones and Missus  Jones would borrow Missus Smith's copper kettle, and Missus Robinson would  send each of them a hunk of fresh pork  whenever her man killed a, hog, and the  three of them traded pumpkin seeds and  onion sets and geranium slips and scandal  every now aud then, and gave themselves  away���oh, there's'the bitterness of it; but  alas, it is different now. They are down  on one another, aud each of them says it  wouldut be well for the other if she told  all she knew; aud, true to Canadian bringing up, the war is,carried even into the;  school, and the vulgar small fry of all  three families won't see one another, if  you please, and if they do it is to stone  one another and fight like the furies.  The trouble was all about the new organ  in the church. That nasty organ /Vasthe  serpent which invaded their Eden and  turned their paradise into a mild kind of  hades. Up to last Sunday it was all congregational singiug, the best way in my  thinking, but the young people got it into  their heads that they would like to be as  smart as the Jericho Junction folks, and  agitated and agitated and agitated, and  kept the whole country in hot water till  they got an orgau, and now look at the  consequence! War, open war and war to  the knife; as the immortal Palafax put it.  These church organs���but why digress?  I will simply tell the awful story and be  shet of it, as Old Man Twilight would say.  After the organ had been carried into  the church during the week, and after  the congregation had adjourned to the  village tavern yard to witness the edifying spectacle of sixteen organ agents  fighting like a pack of wolves, thesuccess-  ful agent preached three Sundays on the  text, "Praise the Lord on wind instruments," and finally sold the cheapest organ for the biggest money. After all this  the question arose, who would play it':*  Missus  Smith put forward her second  girl, Pansy Ann, as a candidate.    Missus  Smith's   dear  hinted   that  friend, Missus Robinson,  Pansy Ann, played dance  music at home and knew more about the  "Arkansas Traveller" than about "Fast  Falls the Eventide," and was more familiar with the tune called the "Devil's Stone  Pile" than she was with the "Kock of  Ages." Next thing we would have hi the  church, she intimated, would be a fiddle,  the devil's own. instrument, and Popery  as well���ah, and they would be winding  up the Sunday evening services with a  song and dance���ah, and she closed up au  eloquent address by nominating her own  daughter, Hollyhock, for the position.  Hollyhock always played sacred music at  home, and the furthest she ever went  away from it was to pump the Alma  march or the Maiden's prayer out of her  poor little melodeon at home.  Missus Jones bobbed up serenely just  about then, and remarked that "neither  of them girls k no wed as much about  music as a dog I. no wed about jography,"  and put her own girl, Juniper Jane, in  nomination.  Then the fun commenced. The poor,  little, inoffensive preacher, who thought  himself out of the woods when the organ  was  finally purchased, found  himself at  once up to his neck in the swamp. Three  parties were formed at once, each side  working desperately for the victory, and  when on Sunday morning a big,-limbed  young woman, with a great deal Of the  white in her eye and a large, damp mouth,  took possession of the organ stool, slam;  med up the cover and pulled out the  stops, the adherents of Juniper Jane were  jubilant, and were the only ones who  joined iu the singing when the fair organist struck up ''Scatter the Seeds of Kindness."  The rest of the congregation- scowled.  They hoped she would make a mis-cue,  slip a cog, cast a shoe, break a wiffletree,  choke the knotter, forget to put the baking powder,vin, throw the colt or go out  of gear���but she didn't! She just pumped  away with both legs and bumped away  with both arms, and froze Missus Smith  and Missus Robinson with a cold, stony  stare that gave the poor things chills and  fever. Mow, the Jones crowd did sing!  Mow old Jones did holler���"Pur-raise  (��'awd!" "Vas���yas!" in the amen corner.  JLow old squire McBloater and the whole  outfit of McBloaters smiled a malicious  smile, and joined their barbarous voices  to the beautiful hymn! And,when the  poor little pee-wee preacher attempted to  describe the torments of the condemned,  they looked over at Missus Smith and  Missus Robinson and groaned. Oh, it  was exasperating!  But this was not the battle of Tattletown���oh, no! That was fought the next  day. You see: Monday is wash-day iu  Tattletown, and this was what happened  last Monday: About S o'clock ante-meridian Missus Smith appeared in her backyard with a huge basket of clothes, and  iiuug out four skirts, three sheets, four  tablecloths, three suits of men's underwear, five aprons and some wash cloths.  Immediately afterwards Missus Robinson  appeared in her back yard with a big  basket, aud huug out six shirts, five  sheets, seven tablecloths, five suits of  men's underwear, five aprons and other  smaller articles too numerous to mention.  I_nter Missus Jones in her back-yard,  and hangs out eight shirts, nine sheets,  seven tablecloths. r ten aprons, men's  underwear galore,' towels, etc., till you  couldu't rest.  First round in favor of Missus Jones.  Time!  Missus Smith came out aud hung four  white petticoats on her line. Missus Robinson promptly went her three better,  but Missus Jones boldly raised the limit,  and hung out nine white petticoats!  Note.- The brave little woman���oh, how  brave, how sacrificing our women can be  in times of dire need and uecessity���had  secretly stepped upstairs, slipped oft her  petticoat, soaked it in water, wrung it  out. and huug it up in triumph. Like the  famous Dutchman, she was prepared to  die in the last ditch.  This move apparently oaraly/.ed the  enemy for a inomeut���but only for a moment. Missus Smith called up her reserves.  She hung out ten specimen*-, of the finest  lingerie in a row. Missus Robinson went  her four better, but Missus Jones, after  slipping up stairs aud removing a white  garment from her modest shoulders, was  able to hang out seventeen of these beautiful articles of commerce, which we sometimes see pictured in the departmental  store advertisements���often on the figure  of a charming girl, who is, bless her sweet  little heart, invariably admiring herself  iu a mirror.  ,'An amateur would have thought that  this would finish the fight���he would  have been mistaken.  Missus Smith came up strong, having  got her second wind, and hung up seven  remarkable looking articles, elegantly  trimmed with lace and insertion. ; Each  was shaped very much like a capital W.  They looked very fine. Missus Robinson,  with a smile of scorn, hung out fifteen W's  as quickly as she could say Jack of that ilk.  There was silence deep as death, and  the boldest held his breath for a time..  The whole village was looking on.  Brave little, sweet little, undaunted little Missus Jones had been praying all day  for night or Juniper Jane. That dear girl,  who was out teaching music, saw the  battlefield from afar���saw the three  mighty brigades flauuting in the wind,,  took-it all in with her feminine eye, and  understood. Then she drove round to her  aunt Maud's, her aunt Susie's, her aunt  Mary Ann's, and came galloping home  with a great bundle m her buggy. Five  minutes after Missus Jones, with her  mouth Full of clothes-pins, hung out thirty-  three W's!!  Missus Robinson fled precipitately from  before this broadside, 'and took to her  room, where she laughed and cried, tapped  the floor with her heels, opened and shut  her hands and eyes rapidly, and so forth ;  but she might have died for all the vil-,  lagers cared���they were watching the  duel outside. In a few minutes buggies,  road carts and messengers were rushing  hither and thither. Napoleon was marshalling the Old Guard. The an* shook  with cries of vive la empereur. Up went  their banners, and thirty-three W's and a  tablecloth waved in the sky. Jumper  Jane gazed on that great array and then  her mother, in whose undaunted eyes the  tears were gathering.  "Mother," cried Juniper Jane, "curfew  shall not ring tonight!" .  She went deliberately upstairs, and  came down again dressed chiefly in her  brother's ulster. The two women put a  couple of dainty white garments to soak,  wrung them out, and gave one more  chemise and one more W to the battle  and the breeze.  One, two. three, four, live, six, seven,  eight, nine, ten! the fatal gong sounded,  and, as the sun went down,Missus Jones,  cold, shivering but victorious; fell into  her daughter's arms and was carried up  to bed, where they put hot water bottles  to her feet. ���  Brave   little   Missus    Jones!     Vive   la  Reine!   Hoch, hoch, frau. frau!  Such was the battle of Tattletown!  ���The Khan.  The Crow's Nest  Pass Bailway and  The Sloean River  Bailway  ��� are to be built during the year  1S97.

We have had the pleasure of looking over the New  Kinpire Typewriter, a Canadian made machine, and 11 ml  it a marvel of simplicity through which the makers claim  durability. The types strike direct, moving only two  inches on a steel 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 lilting of a heavy carriuge; the touch is easy,  the response quick and the type do not appear lo lock.  Ruling vertical and horizontal may be done on it and the  price is less than half that of other standard machines.  So confident arc the'makers of the success of theii machine they will refund the money of any unsatisfied purchaser after a ten days' trial. The Thomson Stationery  Company of Vancouver and Nelson aro to be congratulated on securing the general agency for li. C.
