 Has Mines that are Paying'Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  .  Dividend Paying Mines.  Has  Three  Smelters  in  Successful. Operation,  and  Enough   Ore  in Sight to   Run  Several   More.  FIFTH  YEAR,--NO.  NELSON"  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, JUNE, 19, L89"  TWO  DOLLARS A ���YEAR.  A   TRAIN   LOAD   OP   COPPER  Will Be Shipped From the Hall Mines Smelter  to Great Britain Early in July.  The first copper metal refined in  British Columbia Avas ladled out of the  Hall mines reverbatory furnace shortly  after A o'clock Tuesday afternoon, in the  presence of several interested spectators.  For several weeks superintendent  Johnson has been quietly working up the  matte from the blast furnace into white  metal, and on Monday the reverbatory  furnace-was charged for the further  refining process of converting the white  metal into metallic copper.  On Tuesday some 11  tons of metallic  copper was ladled out of tlie furnace, and  cast   in   pigs,  weighing from   300  to 350  pounds, upon the bottom of whicli the  name of the company appears.     These  pigs are about OS or 09 per cent mineral  and give a value of from $550 to $000 per  ton.     Early Thursday morning another  13   tons of copper  were ladled out.     A  charge yields'from 13 to 1-1  tons of copper  aud  is  worked  through  the furnace   in  from 2(5 to 33 hours.    This would give the  furnace a capacity of about 00 tons in a  week if worked steadily. There is enough  white metal on baud to keep the furnace  refining for another two weeks when it is  expected  that the company will have a  train  load   of metallic copper ready for  shipment to Great Britain.     As an advertisement    of    the   resources   of    the  province    of,   British      Columbia      the  Canadian Pacific  Railway Company has  arranged   to   run   a   special   train  from  llevelstoke across the  continent carrying  about J25  tons  of metallic copper  from  the Hall Mines.    The value of this  shipment will reach close  upon $100,000, and  will   be an   excellent   advertisement  of  West Kootenay's resources.  When superintendent Johnson refines  sufficient copper for this first shipment,  he will commence working up Lhe large  quantities of matte which have been accumulating at the smelter during the past  few weeks, as well as the copper bottoms  from the settling pots. He estimates that  this process of further refining the matte  ��� will effect a saving to the company of  about $1000 per week. The saving is not  alone upon the freight, as tlie charges for  separating the gold, silver and copper are  much lighter than for treating the matte,  and a better price is paid for the gold and  silver contents ot the copper pig than for  the contents of the matte. If this first  shipment of copper reaches the dimensions  contemplated, ic will equal in value one-  fourth of the total production of the company for the previous year.  The company's large blast furnace is being put. in shape for immediate use. It  has a capacity of from 220 to 250 tons per  day, and will be used for treating Silver  King ore, as it is the intention of the company to take out about 250 tons per day  when the lower level at present being run,  is connected with the ore body.  The Kootenay Daily Mail Service.  .'  Matthew Sweetnam,  chief   post office  inspector of Canada, was in Nelson this  ��� week interviewing the business men of  the city upon the question of the proposed  daily mail service for southern Kootenay.  . Under the present system, by the use of  the American route, Nelson has a daily  mail service with Victoria, Winnipeg and  all points in Ontario and the eastern  provinces, and a tri-weekly service with  Vancouver and all points between  Vancouver and Winnipeg. To make the  change of a daily mail service Inspector  Sweetman says, would cost the department $5,000 per year, and the object of  his visit is to ascertain whether or not  the increased mail service is regarded by  the business men of southern Kootenay  as an absolute necessity. While the  people of southern Kootenay would like  to secure the best service possible, it must  be confessed that they are not so much  interested in the creation of a daily mail  service between Revelstoke and the south  as are the business men of Vancouver,  and ��� those of the province and of the  territories. A daily mail service with  southern Kootenayi would no doubt be  very beneficial to those between Vancouver and Winnipeg who desire to  secure a portion of the trade of southern  Kootenay, but if the daily mail service is  not created it will be more their loss than  that of the men doing business iu  this district. Southern Kootenay is  a buying market and if the producers  of the province and of the territories have  not every facility for doing business in  this market it is their loss rather than  Kootenay's. The presence of Inspector  Sweetnam in Kootenay is an evidence of  the government's desire to meet the  postal requirements of the district, and if  the business men on the mainland and of  the Territories stir themselves they may  secure a daily mail service into Kootenay.  nected with the Omaha and Grant smelters, and who now own producing mines  in both Slocan and Ainsworth mining  divisions.        '_  Little Demand Por Outside Property.  The auction sale held Thursday afternoon by the Nelson City Land and Development company, of town lots in sub-divisions 58(a) and JS2 did not result in very  many sales.   Joshua Davies, the managing director of the company, found after  advertising the sale that the condition of  the property was not favorable for an  immediate sale.   Instead of having an unreserved sale he ofi'ered a few lots in each  sub-division and then closed the sale. This  was done merely to keep faith with the  public.   The   only purchaser   in  sub-division 1S2, an eastern addition to the city  of Nelson, was R. E. Lemon.   The bidding  was for the pick of one or four lots in the  eastern addition, which li. h". Lemon secured at $50 per lot.   The purchaser had  till Saturday to select his lots, and took  four. There was no more property offered  in this sub-division.    In sub-division JS2,  commonly known   as Bogustown, eight  lots were sold, after which this property  was   also   withdrawn.      These   lots   are  30x120.    Foi; the pick of four of the  unsold lots in block 1, Jisckowicz bid  $110  per lot, and they were knocked down to  him.   He took lots 5, 0, 7 and S.   For the  pick of four lots in block 3, II. E. Lemon  was the highest bidder.   He secured his  lots at $05 per lot.   The other lots offered  were two iu block 5, which were knocked  down W. li. McLean for $~>~> per lot.   It is  the intention of the company to fix up  the Bogustown  property and   have another auction sale in sixty days.   Charles  A. Waterman conducted the sale.  HALL   MINES   ADVANCE.  A. Camden,  A.   G.   Fox,  Carroll,  M.  Bourgeois,  O.   Wilson,  The Squatters Trouble.  The proceedings which have been pending against the squatters on government  town lots were again stayed today. It  was generally understood that action  would be taken against all who persisted  in remaining upon government lots after  1 o'clock today, but when that hour arrived the government granted a further,  extension till Monday. The squatters for  whose removal orders were made, and  who will be required to vacate on Monday  are:    W.  T.  Steward, H. R.  Bellamy, F.  J. Whitelaw,  S.  J.  Roberts,  W.   Evans,   W.   Traves.   J.  Stuckmeyer.  F.  R. Judd, G.  J.    Mogin,    F.    LaPoint,    P.  J. Maure, J. McDonald, W.  E. McCardie, and George Jackson. This  list does not include all the squatters, but those who have not received notice to vacate will probably receive such  notice next week. The harsh measures  adopted by the government in this matter  will no doubt be remembered by the people of Nelson for some time.  ��� Squtters Rights to Property.  In Rossland this week a case involving  the rights of squatters to the buildings  erected by them upon the land, came before magistrate Jorda,n. The squatter's  house had been torn down by the purchaser of the lot, and he had the offender  arrested for malicious damage. Magistrate  Jordan, in giving his decision, said he  was not going to pass upon the ownership  of the laud. Recent decisions in Ontario  held that any building of a temporary  nature, such as could be easily removed,  were not part of the land, but were personal property. He, therefore, could, not  but hold that Wilstein's building was  personal property. Frey and his men  had destroyed it and he had no alternative but to commit him to stand his trial  at the next assizes.  Comments of a London Journal Upon the Operations of the Company.  The British Columbia Review, the new  journal devoted to the mining interests  of this province, gives the Hall Mines con-,  siderable attention in a recent issue. It  says:  "Here is the output of the Hall Mines  since the beginning of the new year:  January, 50,085 ounces; February, 10,-IS2  ounces; March, 42,955 ounces; April, 51,-  ,.S02 ounces. This latter increase oyer  March is not so sensational as the improvement shown in the first month of  the jrear over December, 1800;.but it is a  splendid exhibition, and probably if the  directors could see their way. to publish  only an approximate estimated* the cost  of obtaining these 51,802 ounces of siver,  the effect on the price would have been  greater. As it was Hall Mines on Monday  made up Js. dearer than a fortnight ago.  We believe Sir Joseph Trutch promised  to consider a-, suggestion made to the  board on this very subject at the annual  meeting in December last. Seeing that  so many other American mining companies can furnish the necessary particulars,  it is regretable thafcsuch a pioneer British Columbia mining and smelting company as the Hall mines cannot do so too.  "In view of the satisfactory Hall Mines  record for 1S87, it is  surprising that the'  MATTE   AND   ORE   SHIPMENTS.  Con-  Ore Shipments from the Slocan Show a  siderrble Increase in Value.  The exports of ore for the past week as  entered at the port of Nelson, show a considerable increase in the value of the shipments from the Slocan.    The  following  were the entries for the week:  bulluox axu  price keeps as ��l.j; especially when we remember that, those who are really well  informed regarding this company did not  consider the price excessively dear even  when the shares stood at ��3 and over last  year. Since then the prospects of the  property have certainly not become less  promising than they were, as was conclusively proved byc*our Nelson correspondent last week. Hall mines seem to  be a good thing, but they will require  keeping."      __.   SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  Trail smelter   Hall Mines smeller, Xelson, matte...  ORE.  l.e Roi mine.

Trying to Prevent the Building: of the Road.  The press dispatches announce that  notice has been given in the commons to  move a six months hoist to the bill granting aid to the Canadian Pacific Railway  company for the construction of the  Crow's Nest railway. As the government  has pledged itself to the measure, those  who desire to see the road constructed  need not suffer any uneasiness on account  of the motion to give the bill a six mouths  noist. The feeling is general that the  Crow's Nest road should be built at once,  and the federal government is not likely  to change front on the question at this  late date. The government has gone too  far into the matter to back out now.  The Pilot Bay Smelter May Be Started Up.  A party of smelting men, made up of  J. B. Chant of Denver. Nash of Omaha,  Braden of Helena, and E. J. Mathews of  Kaslo, were in Nelson last week, and during their sojourn made a trip or two to  Pilot Bay in company with C. Sweeney,  of the Bank of Montreal. On their departure rumors were in circulation that  the smelter at Pilot Bay had changed  owner's, and that it would be started up  at once. Although definite information  cannot be obtained, Tijk Thihuxk can  state that the terms for a deal have been  submitted, and it is not unlikely that  they will be agreed to by the parties interested. If agreed to, the smelter will  be in operation within a month. Under  the management of parties who are con-  Heinze Bowled Out at Ottawa.  Owing to the conflict between the Columbia 6c Western and the Victoria, Vancouver 6c Eastern railway schemes, it is  announced that the government will not  give F. Aug. Heiir/e a subsidy this year.  The only chance for the rival companies  now i.s to amalgamate, and the indications  are that self interest will bring this about.  If the two com panies amalgamate the government may be induced to give a subsidy,  if not during the present session, at the  next. It is the opinion of many that  Charles Hyman's association with Hein/.e  rather injured than improved Heinle's  chances for a subsidy.  They are all too Busy.  When lieutenant-governor Dewduey  gets through with his private business  in East Kootenay, when Col. Baker gets  his townsite business at Cranbrook fixed  up, and when premier Turner winds up  his jaunt to eastern Canada there will be  enough cabinet ministers and government  officers in Victoria to transact the business of the province. When this thing  happens the government will probably  make the necessary apportionments to  the Nelson licensing board.  The contractors for the wagon road extensions,   which   are  being built in the  Slocan, have been delayed by the continued wet weather, and have found it well  nigh impossible to keep their crews in  camp because of the lost time. Carlson,  on the road from Whitewater to the  Jackson mines, had 90 men at work when  the rain began, and was making such satisfactory progress as to give hopes of au  early completion. Fnss and McDonell, on  tho extension of the McGuigan creek road,  expected to finish within the month, but  will scarcely be able to accomplish their  work within that time.  The condition of' the roads connecting  with the Kaslo 6c Slocan railwasr; has  been such as materially to interfere with  ore deliveries, and hence the shipments received at the Kaslo station for several  days have not been up to the usual standard.  Work on the Noble Five mine was resumed early in the week and both concentrator and tramway have been at  work'for several days, and it was expected that shipments would be made today (Friday.) The management returned  from the annual meeting at Spokane on  Wednesday.  A. .1-1. Targett has recorded a brief  power of attorney in which he empowers  H. L. Sawyer to dispose of his interests in  the mineral claims Log Cabin, Clara F.,  Legal Tender, Silver Queen and Hidden  Secret.  A lis pendens has been filed against the  well known mineral claims, Black Fox,  Daisy and California, situated on the  south fork of Kaslo creek. The suit is  brought by Meritez Thompson against  Porter brothers, and calls in question the  title to the properties.  A first shipment from the Argo mine  was made during the present week. This  property was formerly owned by William  Sudrow, John H. Thompson and John A.  Whittier and bonded to Leighton and  Williams, of Sandon, on behalf of Victoria and Nanaimo parties. Development  work has since been prosecuted with energy upou the property. It is located  near the town of Sandon.  CD. Rand of Vancouver aud Sandon,  who recently made heavy purchases of  Noble Five stock, has been elected a director of the company in the stead of Frank  Cutler, who resigned.  The total shipments of the Ruth during  the week ending yesterday, amounted to  .300,000 tons. In the same period the Payne  shipped 400,000 tons, a total for the two  of 700,000 tons.  AIN3WORTH   NOTES.  The Twin mineral claim at Ainsworth,  bonded by A. W. Morris of Montreal, from  D. F. Strobeck and J. B. McArthur, i.s  proving a valuable property. Development work is being done under the management of L. J. McAtee, and shows 18  inches of ore in the face of the tunnel, and  the remainder of the full width is good  concentrating ore. The second payment  on the bond has been made, and the bonders wire that the entire money will be  paid at an early date.  D. F. Strobeck of Ainsworth, has purchased from E. D. Dumas, the Lake View,  situated about one-mile from the town of  Ainsworth, and he and J. B. Hardie have  acquired a one-third interest in the Bessie,  located along the wagon' road about two  miles from the town.  The old shaft on the Little Donald lias  been pumped dry after considerable  steady work. There is a good showing in  the bottom of the shaft.  Provincial constable Wol verton resigned  from the government service this week'.  Wolvertou had charge of the cases against  the squatters and he resigned rather than  take part in the. harsh measures contemplated by the government.  A t3rpographical union was organized  in Nelson this week by the printers employed on the two local papers. Seneca  G. Ketchum was elected president, C. V.  Dake, vice-president; R. A. Renwick. secretary; John Weiss, treasurer, and F. F.  Kellj', sergeant-at-arms.  The third lot of copper was ladled out of  theHallMines reverberatory Friday morning, making over 40 tons of copper so  far for the first week's operations.  An Ottawa report says that arrangements have been made for changing the  gauge of the Trail creek tramway to  standard gauge in order to admit the  Canadian Pacific Railway company into  Rossland.  Franklin Mallory has conveyed to AV. F.  Root, the mineral claims Meniua and McGregor, located on White Grouse mountain, which joins the Storm King and  Gold .King.  There will be a round-up of all animals  running at large in Nelson on Monday.  A pound has been secured, a pound keeper  selected, and the pound by-law will be  strictlyeu forced.  ; Rev. father Poitre returned this week  from a two months' trip to California.  E. II. Tomlinson, of the Last Chance  mine, Slocan district, is back from St.  Petersburg, Florida, where he has hotel  interests and where he spends the.winter.  Asked in regard to the rebellion in Cuba,  he said that the Cubans would gain their  independence, even if tlie United States  did not recognize them as beligereuts.  They have the eastern portion of the  island, and as it is inaccessible to the  Spanish, troops, the Cubans can hold it as  loug as, they can get ammunition ; and  cargoes are landed pretty regularly, notwithstanding the close watch kept by the  United States authorities. Funds are  raised in many ways. All the Cubau  cigar makers employed in Florida pay  ten per cent of their wages to the treasurer of the Cuban junta, and the women  hold fairs and the proceeds are handed  over the same way.  The Hall Exploration Company has  thrown up the bond upon the Shylock  and Ranger properties on Dayton creek.  A survey is being made for the Reco  aerial tramway. It will cross the Noble  Five about half way down the mountain.  The British Columbia Gold Fields company made a shipment of a car-load of  ore from the Howard Fraction group on  Tuesday.  Shipments from the Mile Point mine at  Ainsworth will be resumed within the  next two weeks. There are at present  from S to 10 tons of ore ready for shipment.  -'���'"���  The British Columbia Gold Fields company, which is operating the Athabasca  group, will make a shipment to the Hall  mines smelter next week. A wagon road  one mile in length has been built, connecting the property with the Hall Mines  tramway, at which point the Hall Mines  will receive the rock and send it over the  tramway. There are between 200 and  800 tons of ore on the dump and the property is being developed with, a view to  milking regular shipments. The ore now  beiug taken out of the Athabasca gives  much higher values than were expected,  much of the ore carrying free gold. The  British Columbia company have every  hope of making a mine out of the Athabasca.  The Aaron's Rod Mining company is  meeting with great encouragement in the  development of its property at the  Needles, on lower Arrow lake. Fred Williamson, who has charge of the work at  the property, arrived in the city this  week, lie says that upon the White  Swan claim two six-foot ledges of quartz  running parallel to each other, have been  uncovered. The ledges are about GO feet  apart. On one a 10-foot shaft has been  sunk, and assays made from the rock  gave returns of #.-50 in gold and 100 ounces  silver.    Tin's ledge has been  traced  into  the Invincible ground, 1,-100 feet from the  10-foot shaft, at which1 point a cross-c-ut  is being run upon it. The company will  make up'a trial shipment of a few tons  and have a mill test made.  The funeral of Mrs. Barrow took place  -I'rojirthe residence of her husband, A. R.  Barrow, on Thursday. Mrs. Barrow suffered from a form of jungle fever, which,  followed by other complications, resulted  in her death on Wednesday.  The case of Regina vs. Grant came before Judge Forin this moruiug. The prisoner was charged with stealing a gold  watch and chain and a sum of money-  from W. J*. Sloan, on the steamer Koka-  nee, about three weeks ago. Sloan did  not- appear and the prisoner was discharged. J. H. Bowes appeared for the  crown and O. M. Johnson for the prisoner.  A bench warrant has been issued for  Sloan for contempt of court.  W. C. McLean left Friday evening fo  look-over the upper half of the proposed  Slocan River railway, which he ,and his  partners will build.  SHORT   BITS   OP   NEWS   FROM   KASLO.  ON   DOMINION   DAY  Police magistrate Chipman had before  him on Thursday a number of the demimonde, who has principles and witnesses  occupied no small- portion of the clerk's  office in which the court was held. Maggie  Clifton had laid complaint for abusive  language against Alice Merchant wrho was  fined $20 for the too free use of her tongue.  John M. McPhee, committed for trial on  the charge of having forged the signatures to the petition asking the provincial government to remove from office  recorder John Keen, was sent to the jail  at.Nelson'bn Monday. He maintains.his  innocence of tho alieged forgery and has  retained F. P. Davis, of Vancouver, to  manage his defense at the the trial.  Postmaster Green has removed the  office to the new building which he has  recently erected on Front street, not far  from Fifth. The new office is very commodious and convenient a'nd when fully  completed will be one of the best in the  district. New boxes will also be introduced, and every arrangement perfected  for the rapid handling of mail.  Henry Croft and J. B. McKilligan have  opened an oflice on A avenue, a few doors  above the old postoffice. Mr. Croft's interests in the Slocan and Lardo camps  have rendered it advisable for him to  have an office in the vicinity of his holdings.  The Henry house, belonging to attorney general Eberts and' G. O. Buchanan,  has been straightened, and repaired, and  will shortly be re-opened as a lodging  house and saloon. It has been unocupied  for a considerable time. In the gale of  three years ago it was twisted out of  shape, aud is only now brought again into  use.   ;  There is an influx of variety actresses  into this city since the authorities of Spokane closed the variety theatres in that  city. The acquisition to the city's population is not of the most desirable kind.  James Weir has resigned from tlie city's  police force and W. A. Milne has been appointed to the vacant place.  Several real estate transactions have  recently taken place, which show a  marked advauce in prices. H. Geigerich  has sold the premises recently occupied  by.hitn to local parties who keep a close  watch upon the market. Another, property on,the south side of Front street was  also recently sold by a broker to outside  parties at a considerable advance upon  the price at which it was held a few  months since.  A petition has been laid before the city  council, asking that it supply the material for a sidewalk to be laid to grade on  the north side of Front street, the property owners agreeing to the work.  G. W. Witham is putting in a stone  foundation for a new building upon the  lot recently purchased by him fro hi John  D. Keenan, near the corner of Fifth and  Front street.  There is a decided movement towards  the south side ot Kaslo creek, as a favorable opportunity for investment. A  number of persons have been purchasing  the cheap property in that portion of the  city, and it is said one investor will build  a number of cottages for rental. A movement is on foot for the construction of a  light steel bridgo across the creek.  111. If. Tomlinson. of the Last Chance  mine arrived from the.east on Wednesday evening for his usual summer sojourn.    He is registered at the Kaslo.  J. B. McArthur, with two sons, as summer guests arrived in Kaslo early in the  week, and has opened an ollice in the  Cameron block. Mr. McArthur Is largely  interested in Slocan properties. His sons  are students iu mining engineering in  Toronto, and will spend their summer vacation in making a'practical acquaintance  with the Mibject to which they are devoting so much study.  Alderman G. O. Buchanan has given  notice at the council board that he will  ask leave to introduce a by-law exempting the property of the Kaslo 6c Slocan  railway from civic taxation. If this bylaw be judiciously drawn, there are many  strong reasons why. it should carry, as  there -vas undoubtedly an understanding  that the railway company should, have  exemption of some nature.  NelBon 'Will Maintain Its Reputation For Holding Successful Celebrations.  The citizens of Nelson will celebrate the  anniversary of the federation of the Canadian provinces for the seventh'time on  Dominion Day. In will be a two days  celebration and like all previous celebrations which have been held in Nelson it  promises to be an enjoyable affair. Of  the committee iii charge of the celebration, R. E. Lemon is president and  R. S. Lenuie, secretary. Au attractive  program has been arranged, comprising  aquatic sports, Caledonian games, horse  races, lacrosse matches, drilling contests,  log chopping contests, hose reel and foot  races, and a tug-of war tournament. The  celebration will be continued for two  days, aud as substantial prizes will be  offered for the different events, some good  contests may be assured. The program  of events will be arranged aud published  next week.

A rather interesting paragraph appears  in the judgment of Justice Drake in the  suit of the B. C. Land  and  Investment  Agency vs. W.H. Ellis and others.    This  was   a  suit  aerainst  several    men   who  endorsed a $"3,000  note, and-their defence  was that the  note had  been  altered and  that therefore they were not liable.    The  following     paragraph     appears   in    lhe  judgment of Justice.Drake :    " By section  20 of the bills of exchange act, it" a bill is  wanting in  any_material  particular, the  person in possession of it has prima facie  authority to fill  up the omission in any  -way he thinks  fit���a simple signature to  blank paper delivered  by the signer in  order to be converted into a bill operates  as an authority to fill  in and  to use ihe  signature as that of drawer  or acceptor.  By section 8S the provisions of the act  relating   to   bills   apply  with! necessary  modifications to a  promissory note, anil  the maker of a note corresponds to'the  acceptor of a bill and the first endorser to  the   drawer   of   an   accepted   bill.     The  result is that if a  note, is  wanting in any  material particular the person  to whom  it is given before he circulates  it can fill  up the blank  wanting, but this does not  authorize any alteration in  a bill or note  which     has     been   duly   executed,    for  instance, if the rate of interest is altered,  or if the words lawful-interest are ( on-  vented, into    six    per    cent    these   are  alterations which will  void a  note.'   The  term  alterations  includes additions  not  contemplated  when  the  note  was made  and  endorsed  such  as adding a place of  payment or a claus'e imposing interest."  Met a Frost in Toronto.  The people of Toronto have given lady,  Aberdeen's nursing .-cheme a black eye.  Mayor Fleming, of Toronto, advertising  a meeting of these interested in the  scheme for three days mall the Toronto ,  papers, and in addition to this some (i"5  special invitations were -issued. There  were but five attended the meeting and  they spent their time in expressing sympathy for lady Aberdeen. AVheu but five  people out of nearly "200,000 show any interest in lady Aberdeen's nursing, fad in  Toronto it is not likely that much enthusiasm will be worked up in its interest in  this district.        ' '.  The Import Duty Upon Ores.  The remarks of minister Fielding in  making the announcement that the government would ask for the i e-(jnactttient  of the resolution in the old tariff !�����"������ pec't-  ing-import duties, were rather .significant.  He said that in regard to export duties  upon saw logs and pulp wood, the government had no intention to apply the resolutions at once. As minister Fielding  made an exception in the matter of export  duties upon ores, it may mean that ihe  government may impose the export duty  upon ores before tlie next sitting of parliament. Those who 111113* be inclined to  build smelters in the United States, should  profit by this reservation.

SATURDAY MORNING.  ,10'XE 19, 1897  Alderman   Teetzei. has given  notice  that at the next meeting of the council he  will introduce a  by-law fixing the   fire  limits of the city, within which  no frame  buildings shall in future be erected.    The  by-law has not yet been drafted, but it is,  to be presumed  blocks 1, 2, ���:">, 0,9, 10, 11,  and  12  will  be included   in   the   limits.  These blocks comprise the business section  or the city and it is not desirable that  any additional frame structures be put  upon   them.     The city  council   will   be  imposing    no   hardship   in    refusing   to  permit    the     construction    of     frame  buildings upon any of  the lots in these  blocks.   The future of the city of Nelson  is    now    sufficiently   well    assured   to  warrant the erection of more substantial  buildings.      There   is   at   present   little  difficulty in  securing brick for building,  and with the increased demand whicli the  fire   limit   by-law   may be   expected   to  create,  a  more regular  supply at   even  lower prices may be counted upon.  The action of the special committee of  the city council in  recommending   that  the corporation take immediate possession  of the fire hall  for city purposes, will no  doubt precipitate  matters in connection  with   the  dispute    over   the   lots   upon  whicli the  fire hall  is built.    If the provincial    government   has   any  sense   of  fairness  it  will  make  good the promise  made to the Nelson  fire company several  years ago.   Before the government made  its division  of lots   with   the   Canadian  Pacific Railway Company it promised the  lots upon which the fire hall is erected to  the fire company.    If, by its subsequent  action,  in  the  division  of the towusite  with the railway company, the   government parted with the lots which it previously promised to the fire company, it  is certainly the duty of government  to  now   make   such   arrangements   as   are  necessary with the railway company for  the due performance of its obligations to  the fire company of Nelson, or its successor, the corporation of the city of Nelson.  It would be well when settling this matter if the government and the railway  company would come to terms with respect to tho donation of land to the corporation   for   athletic purposes.    AVhen  the division of lots with the railway com:  pany occurred it was understood that the  railway  company   and   the  government  should  contribute  equally any  laud  required for public purposes.    The government of British Columbia would stand  higher in the estimation of the people of  Nelson  if,  instead of evading its obligations in this matter, it lived up to them  aud compelled the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to do the same, or established the fact that the railway company  accepted no such obligations.  Premier Laukikk evidently  does not  wish any commercial entanglements with  Great Britain.     He  does  not  desire any  preferential   treatment    of    Canada   by  Great Britain.    He is on record as having  said that the parliament of Canada gave  Britain   preference   as   a   free  gift,  and  ��� wanted nothing in   return.   He likewise  declined,    as     Canada's    premier,   from  being drawn  with   the  Duke of Devonshire's scheme for imperial naval defence.  He  very truly said   that there  was only  one country   with   whom   Canada  could  ever  be at war.   That country was the  United States, and  war  with the United  States was a contingency which lie would  decline  to discuss.    Such   being the case  Canada  in  his  opinion  had  no need  for  great schemes  of  naval   defence.    With  thests remarks of Premier Laurier most  NELSON LODGE, NO. 23, A, V. & A. M. Meets  second Wednesday in each month. Sojourning  brethren invited.  The Ames Holden Co's special "Columbia,"  "Vancouver," "Kootenay" should be worn  by everybody who wants a first-class mountain boot.  ��tte fKritfurte*  Canadians will agree. Should Britain  give Canadian imports of bread stuffs an  advantage over those from the United  States it would no doubt mean a great  deal to the grain producers ot the  Northwest, but Canadians have no  surety that the dicker would end there.  It might mean the involving of the  Dominion in all the troubles of Great  Britain,' and in such case Canada had  better take less money for her wheat  and keep out of trouble.  Senator McIxxks has withdrawn his  motion in favor of the establishment of a  Canadian mint, in compliance with a request  made in the senate.by  Sir Oliver  Mowat.    The chief kick came from Senator Drummond, of Montreal.    The argument advanced  by this senator against  the establishment of a mint will be read  with interest by the people of this province.   "He expressed the opinion that the  depreciation from wear and tear on gold  coinage  far "more  than  represented any  margin  of profit that could be made in  coining gold,    lie held  that a  fair  estimate of the cost of establishing an adequate mint would be about $100,000.   To  this must be added the cost of running,  which he estimated at $12,000 or $13,000 a  year.   The ��� most  serious   aspect  of   the  question, however, he thought, was that  the establishment of a mint would be the  first step towards an agitation for the unlimited coinage of silver.    In his opinion,  the experience of the United States which  had been brought almost to the verge of  bankruptcy by a similar agitation, should  be a warning to the "government to proceed cautiously with any proposition such  as the establishment of a mint."   If the  people of Canada were close readers of  such   speeches   delivered   in the senate,  they would not be long in coming to the  conclusion that the Dominion is already  suffering from   a   more   serious ailment  than would be brought about by any discussion of the monetary system in an agitation for free coinage.  The announcement that. the federal  government will invest the executive  with authority, to put in force by proclamation an act imposing an export duty  upon certain kinds of ore, will no doubt  have'a good-effect in stimulating the  smelting industry of West Kootenay. It  may never be necessary to impose any  such duty, but in the interim pending the  construction of the Crow's Nest Railway  and the availability of cheap fuel, it may  deter those who are at present inclined to  erect smelters* in the United States for  the treatment of Canadian ores. If in  the face of this action on the part of the  federal government the owners of any  mines in British Columbia erect their  smelters south of the international line,  and afterwards find themselves pinched  they will have themselves to blame. The  people of Canada have a right to demand  every possible advantage which is  attendant upon the development of the  mineral wealth of the Dominion and the  commons of Canada is in about the right  mood to demand such advantage, or  impose a penalty upon those who  withhold it. The construction of the  Crow's Nest road is necessary to establish  the smelting industry in this district, and  until the road is built it is not likely that  any import duties will be imposed.  Ix commenting upon the report that  Senator Mcfnnes will succeed Lieutenant-  Governor Dewdney, and that J. C. Mc-  Lagan, of the Vancouver World, will succeed Mci nnes in the Senate, the Inland  Sentinel says: "There is not a man on  the mainland so foolish as to believe the  Liberal government would do anything so  utterly distasteful to the party in this  province as to appoint anyone connected  with the Vancouver World to a senator-  ship. We have nothing against J. C. Mc-  Lagan personally, but there are liberals  in British Columbia who have well earned  recognition from the government; among  whom ,''''* gentleman has no place.  Ottawa -.Icii-M-Lelies state that Dr. Milne is  urging his claim to the ollice of Lieutenant-Governor of this province. AVhen  that position becomes vacant Wm. Tem-  pleman, of the Victoria Times, should  have the refusal of it."  The very bad example set by several of  the members of the legislature in endeavoring to shut out Americans from enjoying the privileges of free miners is being  followed by certain members of the house  of commons at Ottawa. Notice of a bill  to compel alien.owners of mineral claims  to become residents of Canada and British  subjects has already been given. There  is no reason to believe that the commons  will'pass the measure, but the circumstance that the bill has even been introduced illustrates the mischief that may  be done by legislators who make use of  their position to gratify personal spleen.  The sense of .British Columbia is overwhelmingly against any such measure as  that proposed, but the provincial legislature is so far from being representative,  that it is almost evenly divided upon the  question. .  Liel'texaxt-Govkhxor Ddwd.vioy liasi  published his version of the reason why  he withheld his assent to the bill prohibit  ing the employment of Chinese by any  company receiving a charter or other concessions from legislature. In as much as  he states that he acted upon the strength  of his own views, lieutenant-governor  Dewdney puts those friends in a foolish  position who have been maintaining that  he was acting solely in consonance with  the wishes of Premier Laurier's cabinet'.  The excuse offered by the lieutenant-  governor is that the passage of a bill  prohibiting companies securing concessions from' the crown from employing  Chinese, would injuriously affect the  trade interests of Canada with the  Chinese empire. Lieutenant-Governor  Dewdney evidently thinks that Canada's  trade interests are safer in his hands than  in the hands of the Canadian government.  JUST RECEIVED a small varied stock of  .ECTRICAL SUPPLIES  Those who are opposed to the employment   of  Chinese    in   the   underground  workings of coal mines are having a hard  time in  the  courts.    Several years ago,  the     legislature,    in     response    to    the  demands  of    the  white  miners of  Vancouver Island, passed  an act prohibiting  the employment of Chinese in the mines  underground.       For     years    after   the  passage   of   the act   it was   allowed   to  remain   a  dead   letter,   as   it    was   not  regarded favorably by the government.  Later its constitutionality was assailed,  but the courts upheld  the act when it  was     referred    by ~ the "government.  Following this proceedings  were   taken  against the Union  colliery for employing  Chinese contrary to  the act and a conviction  was secured.    An appeal against  this conviction  was taken aud last week  when Justice Drake quashed the conviction on the ground that although the act  prohibited the   employment of  Chinese  underground, such  employment was not  made an offense under the act for which  a penalty was imposed.   This finding of  Justice   Drake   practically   nullifies   the  coal   miners'   regulation    act  until   the  legislature   meets   next   year, and   the  measure for which the white miners have  been fighting for nearly ten years is just  as far off as ever.   .This last bout which  the act has had with the courts illustrates  the effect of   carelessness   in   the  legislature, and incidentally shows how the  cabinet   can   defeat the   wishes  of  the  house by loosely drafting or amending  bills as originally drawn.     This  is   an  advantage which the Turner cabinet has  over its opponents,  and  if it defeats a  measure  by faulty drawing rather  than  by actively opposing it, the members of  the opposition have themselves to blame.  The members of the Kootenay Miners'  Protective Association are "not satisfied  with finance minister  Fielding's tariff on  mining machinery.    When the new tariff  was    first    announced    it   was   stated  generally  .that    the    government    had  decided to place mining machinery upon  the free list, but since importers of mining  machinery  have  had   an    acquaintance  with the new tariff they have learned  that under it there is practically less free  mining machinery than  there was under  the old conservative tariff.   Such is the  opinion of the miners' association, and as  its members are fairly representative of  the mining industry, and constitute the  heaviest importers of   machinery, their  finding should carry considerable weight.  H.    E.    Croasdaile,    president    of    the  association,   in    his    quarterly   meeting  address at Rossland on Saturday, made  the statement  that the new tariff meant  simply an exception  in favor of certain  portions of concentrating plants and that  through the change   of   government   at  Ottawa those interested in mining had  passed from the' frying pan  into the fire.  The association will endeavor  to  have  some important amendments made to the  tariff in this respect and  it remains to be  seen whether the government will make  good  its implied promise of free mining  machinery.

Justice   Walkem   on    Monday  handed  down  his   decision   iu   the case  of   the  Nelson and Fort Shepnard Railway  Company vs. the Quart/'. Creek townsite  .jumpers. The case was an application on  behalf of Edward J. Powell and others,  who jumped the townsite of Quartz  Creek, to have au injunction secured by  the railway company against themselves  dissolved. The application was refused  and the injunction remains. It is not  likely that the railway company will not  have much difficulty getting the jumpers  off the townsite.  George S. West; who has been in jail for  tlie past five months on a charge of appropriating to his own use $497.57 of the  money of the estate of the Slocan Store  Company, came before Judge Forin for  trial on Wednesday. West was provisional liquidator for the Slocan'Store  Company, and the information was laid  against him by P. J. Russell, who was  afterwards appointed liquidator. The  trial resulted in West's release. J. IT.  Bowes appeared for the crown and A. M.  Johnson'for the prisoner.  Ground was broken this week for the  brick   block   to   be   erected  by Messrs.  Mara and Barnard on Baker street, adjoining the Ulliot block. It will be a two  story building. The first floor will be  fitted up for stores and the second floor  for offices.  Messrs. Applewhaite aud Bowes made a  start this week on a $3,000 frame building  which they are erecting on Baker street  opposite the Barrett block, ft will be a  two story building.  George Johnstone, collector for the port  of Nelson, was put into a quandary this  week in his efforts ��� to ascertain the  classification for duty of a jaw-bone imported by Dr. LaBau. Tlie importer  objects to the payment of any duty as he  is of the opinion that jaw-bone is the one  article which Laurier's free trade government allowed to remain exempt.  Alderman Fletcher, J. Roderick  Robertson and Harold Selous of this city,  and A. F. Corbin of Rossland, together  "with Messrs. Alexander, Fraser and Keen  of Kaslo have been appointed a committee  ' by the Kootenay Miners Association for  the purpose of examining the "companies  act, J807" and reporting upon same at the  next quarterly meeting of the association.  The association is not satisfied with the  act as it oassed the last session of the  legislature and will endeavor to have it  amended.  The special committee of the city  council, appointed for the purpose of  selecting a site for a city cemetery, have  reported that it is not within the means  of the city to purchase the laud required  for a cemetery, provided a suitable .site  could be found within a mile or so of the  city, as all land near the cityis either sub  divided into town lots or held for that  purpose. The committee in their report  express the opinion that suitable ground  can be secured within easy reach of the  cjty along the line of the Columbia and  Kootenay Railway. A month's extension  was asked and granted in which to make  a final report.  There is considerable rivalry between  T. A. Collin and Newton Hoover as to  who raises the finest strawberries. The  former claims he has the largest berries  ever grown in Kootenay, and the latter  says his are the finest flavored.  The Nelson Electric Light company  placed an order this week for two 1000-  light dynamos. When installed this will  give the. company capacity to furnish  ,"3,000 incandescent lights of IG-candle  power.  The case of Regina vs. Wright'came  before Judge Forin Thursday afternoon.  The prisoner, Frederick William Wright,  of Rob-son, was charged with making a  fraudulent transfer of property for the  purpose of defrauding his creditors.  .When the case was called Judge Forin  expressed the opinion that it should have  been/a civil action and not a criminal  action. He discharged Wright and a settlement was arrivecf at between the parties shortly after. J. IT. Bowes appeared  for the crown and A. M. Johnson for the  prisoner Wright. ���  Postmaster Gilker announces that the  postof'fice boxes ordered by him several  weeks ago have arrived ;ind will probably be ready for use next week. These  new boxes will be a great (Convenience to  the business men who heretofore have  been unable to secure boxes of their own,  and will no doubt do away with much of  the complaint which has arisen from this  quarter. Hud it not been for the delay  of the manufacturer, the boxes would  have arrived in Nelson upon the completion of the new postofiice building.  Hon. D. W. Higgins, speaker of the  legislative assembly, spent a couple of  days in Nelson this week. Since the clone  of the session .Air. Higgins has taken up  his residence in Rossland, and those who  profess to know say that he is laying tlie  wires to represent Rossland, or tlie district which may contain it in the next  provincial   legislature.
