THE   WHITS    GROUSE   MINES.  Three Strong  Companies  Announce Their Intention of Resuming Work" at Once.  W..R. Ramsdall passed through Nelson  this week euroute for White Grouse mountain, where he will resume work upon the  group of claims held by the,Montana people back of the townsite of Sanca. This  Montana"syndicate has been recently reorganized, several members of the first  syndicate having dropped out. Mr. Ramsdall will continue to manage the affairs of  the company.  ���Mr.���Ramsdall announces that work will  he resumed on the Golden King at once.  Last season a crosscut tunnel was started  on this property and run in about 75 feet.  It is estimated that the tunnel will have  to be run in another 100 feet before it  reaches the ledge, and a double shift has-  been started upon the work. So soon as  supplies can be got upon the ground work  will also be resumed on the Storm King  shaft. This shaft is now dowiw-7" feet  and has a line showing in the bottom.  Assays made from.this showing give from  $75 to 2o0 ounces silver, $8 to $10 in gold  and about 10 per cent copper. Ramsdall  will also let a contract for running a $J00-  i'oot tuuuel on the ���Silver Tip. about a  mile above the Storm Iving. Work will  also be resumed on the wagon road from  Sanca to the mines.  Tlie Wellington company operating the  Brussells and Edmonds property, on  White Grouse will resume work as soon  as they can get in supplies. Another  company which will operate in the White  Grouse this summer is the Oro Platte.  This company is composed of Rossland  and Spokane men, and it owns a group of  claims about a mile south of the Storm  King. The company proposes to run in a  couple of tunnels this summer and will  work from 10 to 15 men.  On the whole the outlook for White  Grouse is very encouraging this spring,  and its development means much in a  business way to the city of Nelson.  The Toronto Group Sold.  Captain   Thompson,   manager   of    the  Wonderful, yesterday concluded the purchase from D. M. Bongard aud others, of  Slocan, of a group of four prospects, the  Toronto, Auditorium, St. Paul and Minneapolis. These claims are undeveloped,  but they are in the Slocan country, northeast of the Payne group, with only a fraction lying between. They are about one  and a quarter miles from McGuigan, and  the-wagon road leading to the Payne  mine leads across one of the claims.  The Silver King- Mine.  Tothe Editor Ti;iiu:>,'|._: A report a p-  peared in the Rossland Miner of 20th of  May, stating that Mr. M. S. 'Davys was  leaving the employment of this company,  and also reflecting in a most disparaging way on hi.s management of the  Silver Jving mine. As this article, or  its substance, has been largely copied  other     papers,    1     will   ask   your  by  permission to state that the reflections  cast upon .Mr. Davys are' entirely unwarranted and unjustifiable, and that his  ability as a-mining engineer is fully recognized is best evidenced by the fact that  the board of directors have not (he least  intention of depriving the company of  his services as <-uperintr'ndentof the mine.  Jfuxnv Fj. Ci'oakdaiU'.,  General Manager the Hall Mines, Limited.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  James Delaney of New Denver, made an  assignment on Wednesday for the general  benelit of his creditors. _ The assignment  was.made to Joseph Irwin.  A. J. Marks returned to Nelson this  week after spending a month in Colorado  and Arkansas. He advertised the advantages of Nelson wherever he went, and  has reason to believe that several of his  .friends will give Nelson a call this summer.  Some rich strikes are reported i'rom the  neighborhood of Goat creek. On German  mountain, between Goat and Granite  creeks, they are said to be finding traces  of the richest ore in Kootenay!  The lacrosse boys feel that they have a  good kick coming against the Kaslo sports  committee for charging the members of  the team for admission to the grounds on  the queen's'birthday.  .Passengers over the Canadian Pacific  last Monday report that the whole train  came nearly being dumped in the lllecillewaet river, about three miles this side of  Revelstoke, through the collapsing of  some piles in the trestle work over the  river. The courageous act of the engineer in throwing wide the throttle and  making a dash to cross was the means of  landing the long train with about 150  passengers safely across the bridge.  Chas. 13. Wolverton, who has so efficiently filled the position of provincial  constable at this place for some time, expects to be transferred to Vimr shortly.  George H. Keel'er, a former resident of  Nelson, has made a strike of a 3-foot ledge  of galena, in the neighborhood of Howe  Sound.' It is said to be the first galena  ore found on the coast. Keefer has refused a couple of big offers for his claim.  The members of the city council should  enter a pi otest against the government's  contemplated action in the matter ot  building a provincial jail upon block -h.'..  This' block 'is right itrt'he center of "what  promises to be the residential portion of  the city and should not be used for jail  purposes. If this matter is represented  to the government- iu its true light the error will doubtless be righted.  The Columbia & Western railway will  soon put a new townsite on the market.  The prospective city, which has not yet  been named, will be located just across  the river i'rom Robs'ou. The company  speaks of the erection of a bridge across  tlie river to Robson, where connection  would be made with the Columbia .&  .Kootenay railroad to Nelson.  The squatters held a meeting at Gray's  lumber yard' office Wednesday night, at  which the neuclus for a fund to defend  their rights was obtained and various reports heard. A strongly worded petition,  numerously signed, was forwarded next  morning to the lieutenantgovernor, whose  good offices are invoked in their behalf.  The vitiscope exhibition of the; Corbett  aud  Fit/.simmons   light at the^ fire  hall  Thursday night, was a 'disappointment to  those who had been promised an actual  representation of the contest at Carson.  Many local sports who are familiar with  the appearance of the principals, and referee, have no hesitation in pronouncing  the exhibition as a cheap attempt at a  representation of the famous fight..1        .  CARRIED OVER KOOTENAY PALLS.  A Supposed Nelson Prospector on a Raft Swept  to His Death.  Charles B. Wolverton, provincial constable, brings news of an unknown man  going to his death over Kootenay falls on  a raft. Andrew Joly, who has a contract  for getting out wood for the Hall mines,  went fishing-with James Moriarty and  another man last Sunday afternoon, and  while sitting on the river bank, about  eight miles from Robson, they were startled to notice a raft coming rapidly down  stream and bearing a man. The poor  fellow was without a paddle and was being swept onward to a watery grave over  tlie falls, a short distance below where  the fishermen were ashore. The current  at this point is about 15 miles an hour, so  that it was utterly impossible for the  men on the bank to render any assistance.  The doomed man frantically shouted and  gesticulated to the horrified watchers to  save him, and not until the raft had been  swept past the fishers did he seem to give  up hope. Then with a hopeless, despairing gesture he fell upon his knees and  Joly and his companions were compelled  to stand idly by and see the raft witliits  human freight disappear over the brink  of the foaming cataract into the seething  torrent below. Who the unfortunate  man was the eye witnesses of the terrible  tragedy were unable to guess, but the  supposition is that he was a Nelson .prospector who had attempted to cross the  stream several miles above and had by  some mischance lost his paddle or pole,  and so became a helpless victim of the  turbulent waters of Kootenay river. Mr.  Joly describes the man as of medium size,  stoiit, short dark hair, no mustache, but  a beard of about a week's growth.  SHORT   BITS   OP   NEWS   PROM   KASLO.  John A. Whittier, well- known in the  Slocan as the President of the Goodenough  mines, and one of its largestst.ockholders,  returned to Kaslo on Saturday evening  last, thus concluding a wedding four. Mr.  and Mrs., Whittier were niairied in  Charlestown, Massachusetts on the 20th  of April last, and will make their home in  this city where they will build aresidence.  There was some flurry in the city late  last week over a reported sale of the well  known Whitewater mine to the, Puget  Sound Reduction "Works Company of Everett, Wash. Both Manager Eaton and  Major Montgomery, one of the owners, say  cthat the report is entirely without foundation. The matter of a sale may have  been talked over between the parties, and  to this'extent only, is itpropei\tosay that  negotiations have been pending. They  have not however been carried into such  an extent as to prevent the owners from  selling the property to anyone who has  the money to pay for it. There have been  many inquiries concerning the mine, and  wishes expressed to make an examination  with a view of purchasing.  It is understood that matters have been  so arranged that the townsite of the Rosebery ou Slocan lake may be placed upon  the market. The property was originally  purchased from the government by A. M.  Wilson;, who afterwards disposed of a  one-third interest each to Mayor Green of  Kaslo, and G. B. Nagle of Revelstroke.  Subsequently D. McGillivray, contractor  for the construction, of the Nakusp and  Slocan railway, acquired a conditional interest. Rosebery is one of the best sites  on Slocan lake. It has a protected harbor  where the C. P. R. has built an expensive  wharf, and is the point where'all shipments from the lower lake must he transferred to tho railway. R.obert F. Green  will manage the property^in trust for the  other owners.  The McGuigan wagon road will immediately be extended so as to reach The J3est  mine and other properties: Arrangements  have been made to have it reach the  Rambler-Cariboo, aud it is'expected that  the Surprise and Ontario will share in the  advantages and cost. The output of these  mines will thus be put at the Jvaslo and  Slocan railway at a much cheaper rate.  As soon os the extention is completed  George Hughes reports that the force at  The Best will be largely increased and the  property made a regular shipper. The  development work which has hitherto  beehsteadily carried on places" the property in first class condition. The Jackson  mines are also in first class shape as  tho result of intelligent development  work. Jieeeiitly the force has not been  large owing to the quantity of drippiug  water. The mine however has beeen put  in shape to sink a permanent shaft in the  flat where the buildings are. There is a  Hue showing of ore in the lowest tunnel.  A contract has been let by this company  to G. A. Carlson for the construction of a  ���wagon road from Whitewater station,  which was located last year by G. 0. Foss.  A concentrator will also be built in the  mines on.Jackson creek, which will afford  an abundant water supply.. The latter  will be in charge of T. L. Mitchell.  The Monte/.uma is a South Fork property which will have extensive connecting  works in the immediate future. Thomas  L. Mitehel has prepared plans and specifications for a concentrator, aud E. W.  Cummings, Kaslo's water works engineer,  will make a survey of a route i'or a. tramway. As soon as the latter is completed,  tenders will be invited for the whole of  the works. The Kaslo Montezuma Company will also seek the assistance of the  local government in constructing a wagon  road to connect with the Jvaslo and Slocan railway. V -  It is announced that the tug steamer  Idaho will make an attempt to run the  Duncan river from Kootenay lake to Hau-  ser lake. Simson brothers of Duncan city  and Ha user lake, and Thomas Dunn, who  have had a large experience on this part  of the lake have volunteered to assist in  making the trip and if two or three places  can be placed by the aid of the windlass  it is not deemed impossible for the little  boat to make the ascent. Should it prove  successful the Idaho will remain on Mauser lake and ply from the terminus of the  Argentine trail to a point some II miles  up the river from the head of the lake.  The lower Duncan i.s impassable for small  boats at the present time save under the  most skillful guidance. A large number  has, therefore, been collected at Argentine  while 'prospectors' supplies are packed  over the trail from that point to the foot  of the lake. The water in the upper Duncan has been very high, having risen seven i'eet in a week, it fell more rapidly as  it went down three feet in the course of  thirty-six hours.  .  James M.'Anderson, who has charge of  the prospecting parties sent out by the  Gold Hills Exploration and Development  Company of which Speaker Kdgar of the  House of'Commons is president, and J. B.  McArthur, managing director, came down-  from the Duncan river on Monday last.  He reports that he has now ten men engaged in prospecting for his .company.  They are divided into five parties and  have been operating mostly on the east  side of the upper Duncan, within a radius  of about fifteen miles from the headquarters camp at tlie nioutli of Mauser creek,  They were able to get up this creek about  ten miles, but were stopped by the snow  a couple of miles up Hall creek. Mr. Anderson says the country is difficult to  prospect,as most of the creeks run through  deep canyons. The navigation of the Duncan river above Mauser lake is dangerous.  Record of the Sports Which Went  to Make a  Successful Affair.  The diamond jubilee celebration of the  queen's birthday was one of the most successful  which  the city has had.   There  was a large gathering from outside places,  and the citizens rave themselves a more  general holiday than has been customary.  The steamers from Nelson brought large  crowds;  and   a   liberal   delegation  came  over the Kaslo & Slocan railway.    Prominent amongst the visiting holiday makers  was mayor Houston of Nelson,'who came  up as usual'to witness Kaslo's celebration.'  During the day he was escorted by mayor  Green, and received many warm congratulations, because of his new honors.    The  weather on the opening day was all that  could be desired, aud while all were bent  on enjoyment, there was nothing to  detract  from  the opportunity.   The day's  exercises began, .with the sailing race between  the sloop-rigged  yachts  Myth of  Nelson,   and   the Kootenaian   of   Kaslo.  The former was sailed by Harold Elliot as  captain, assisted by H. 13. Perks, J. Keith  ���Reid aud Augus Campbell, while the Kaslo  .boat, was handled by Alexander McKen/.ie  as captain, who had with him A. J.  Slee,  Jesse   Anderson'and   John   D.   Keenan.  The race which bid fair to be interesting  started at a few minutes after .1.0 o'clock  with a spanking breeze  from  the south.  The Myth in the lead rounded  the starting boat a minute and a half ahead of her  opponent, which carried away a back stay  and the starboard shroud iu  coming to  windward   to  round  the marking boat,  lio'th boats showed good qualities  but of  course were very wet in tlie chopping sea  which prevailed.    Everything1 pointed  to  a good   race   until  the rounding of the  third mark.   The-Myth  close reefed  and  lowered   the jib.   The   Kootenaian   still  carried;on under one reef.   A very heavy  wind was blowing and   both  boats  were  having all they could stand.   Shortly  after  rounding  the  mark  the Kootenaian  lost Iter mast,  all the shrouds  and  stays  being   too   tight  for such   hea'vy   work.  The Myth was thus left to finish her journey   alone.    Her crew  showed  excellent  seamanship   thoughout  the   course,   and  brought  their  boat   across  the  winning  line in good shape, having made the nine  mile course  in one  hour and   thirty-live.,  minutes.   The  Nelson   thus   retains   the  Kaslo's ladies pennant for another  year.  Tlie Caledonian sports were started while  the   sailing race  was still  pending,  and  were witnessed by a large crowd of interested spectators.    The  first  event called  was the   100 yard race   for  which  there  were five entries.    The winner  was Jack  Allen,   a  sprinter of   considerable   note,  with A. J. Dill a good second.    The  boy's  race which followed was won by M. Weir  and F.  McKinley second.   The* 220 yard  race  again  brought   out Allen  and   Dill  with two others.    This was a good race in  which Allen showed that he was astayer,  He won with Dill further away  than   before.   The weeel barrow race was won   by  Nisbett with Kane as  second.    The winners ran a fairly straight course, but  the  wild   movements of   the   others   created  amusement.    A   boat  race and egg   and  spoon   race   were   also   interesting  from  their oddity.    The  former  was  won  by  Coy and McCinley and the latter  by   Dill  and Strathem in   the order  named.    The  three-legged race  was   won   by   Dill   and  Strathen  second.  The ju  ,   witli   O'Reilly    and    Nisbett  nping contests proved  drawing  ���because of tlie'long sweepers that stretch  into the current from- the shore. He  nearly lost one of hi.s crew who was  thrown" into the swift current from one of  the fallen trees. The work on the lower  river should be extended in due time to  the upper portion. Ten claims have been  located and recorded for the company,  ami some fine specimens are shown, taken  i'rom tlie surface showings.  -Alderman Goodenough has received the  sad intelligence of the death of his mother on Wednesday morning at her home in  the county of Champlain, Quebec. Mrs.  Goodenough had been an invalid for more  than a year and had scarcely passed later  middle life at the time of her death. She  was very generally esteemed.  There has been recorded in the office of  the' mining recorder, the mandate  of the supreme court of the province appointing Mrs. Mary AlacKay to administer.the estate of her late husband,  Adam MacKay, who died at Three Forks  while Mrs.'Ma'cKay was visiting in Iceland. The value of the estate is sworn to  be under $-1,000.  J3y direction of the city council the water commissioner invites tenders i'or digging the trench and laying a water main  along Fourth street between A avenue  and front street. The pipes are ou the  ground but there was too -much frost in  .the ground to continue the work last winter. Tenders are also invited for the construction of an overflow flume i'rom the  reservoir.  Scott Themberg, Thomas Melrose1 and  Charles W. Sturges register in the mining  recorders office as a firm or co-partnership  for the purpose of locating, acquiring and  developing mineral claims, and generally  dealing iu mining property. They do not  own in common any of the stocks held by  Sturges aud Melrose in Slocan and Spokane mining company, but contribute to  the partnership property the miniral  claims, Glacier South, Oregon and J3ime-  talic and an undivided one-half of the  Silver Alp and Needles, all situated near  the divide between the south fork of  Kaslo creek and AVoodbury creek.  THE    KASLO   CELEBRATION.  cards and held a large number of spectators even after the ball game had commenced. The standing broad jump was  won by Dill with 11 feet (i inches lo his  credit, with Stopher of Spokane second,  covering'll i'eet 1 inches. The running  broad jump also went to Dill with 17 i'eet  one inch to his credit, Sweeney having 1(5  feet I inch. In the hop:step-and-jump  Dill covered 37 feet 2 inches, and Stopher  35 feet 9 inches, taking first and second  money. Dill and Sweeney each had-1 feet  2 inches to his credit in the standing high  jump and divided tho prizes. The running high jump was won by Stopher. In  the vaulting by pole, McLeod was an easy  victor at 9 feet 2 inci:e?j. Stopher put the  shot 35 feet 7A inches and won over G. A..  McLeod who was only -A inch short of the  same record. " '     .  . The ball game between the Spokane  and Kaslo nines, being the initial game of  the Kooteuay-Washington league . was  witnessed by a larger gathering than had.  ever previously assembled within an enclosure in the city. The grandstand was  filled to its capacity with brightly-  gowned ladies and interested men, and  was in itself an objective lesson worth  studying. Nash and Davy were the battery for the Jvaslo team while Rush and  Connors did similar duty for the Spo-  kanes. The first four innings were well  played and very interesting. Neither  nine, however, maintained itself" to the  end. The batting was good but the base-  running indifferent. The game was won  by Spokane with the following score by  innings:  i     i     :i     i     5     ii     7     8     !>  Spokane        o     i     o     u     i)     o     3     :i     *���i;  Kuslo 0      0      (l      5      0      0       1       I ���1.0  The result of the second game of the  league Scries played on Tuesday afternoon, after a rainy morning, was also a  victory for the Spokane team. Stopher  took the place of Rush in tlie box, and  pitched an admirable game from start to  finish. Koffman for the home nfne also  pitched good ball but was not well supported in the field. It was, however, an  interesting game and was only won after  a spirited contest. The score at the close  stood 11 to 7 in favor of the visiting nine.  Jt is fair to say in behalf of the Ivaslo  nine that they had had very little practice together^ and will yet give some hard  contests to their opponents before the  series is complete. Bray who umpired  both games did himself credit. He was  prompt and decided. Theee was kicking  at times but no real feeling over his decisions.  The first game played in tlie series of  the South Jvootenay lacrosse league practically closed the first day's amusements.  The players as they lined up for the game  showed two meu short in the Kaslo team.  Their opponents of tlie Nelson team accordingly withdrew two of their men. It  was agreed, too, that on account of,, the  advanced afternoon, the play should last  only an hour. The diminished players as  they began the game were thus placed:  Ni-:i.s(iX   ' ......'��� Kaslo  Nash.... ��� ���' ..goal _ ... .". ..Mills  Gmy............;...-: point    ....... .Frost  Gallilier cover point.. :....Dill  Dallas   Ist.<d.

Jt went to Nelson with  a score of 3 goals to 2. The umpires were  Irvine for Nelson, Morris for Kaslo, with  II. Ryan as referee.     .<'.:'.'  The regatta on Tuesday morning did  not attract a very large gathering. The  double canvas race was won by.'II.  Mathews. The single scull race by J. Bellamy and Eli Smith. The dances on each  evening of the celebration was largely attended and proved very evjoyable tothe  many who participated in them.  The Streets on which Money Has Been Spent.  Erom April 21th to the 22nd of this  month the city expended, on streets and  sidewalks, the following amounts: Carbonate street, $170.05; Ward street, $20.50:  Hall  street,  $107.55; Latimer street, $9S:  Cottonwood Smith creek trail, $5: Silica  street, $S3; Stanley street, $230.55; Mill  street, $300.80; Josephine street, $355.-15;  Observatory street, $53.I0- Kail way street,  $59.10; Robson street, $18.90; Baker street,  $221.-10; Vernon street. $13: Victoria street,  $8. Of the total ($2150), $1201,95 were paid  for labor, $791.52 for lumber, $53.53 for  nails, and $100 for tools.  Smeltor For Boundary Creek.  Mr. Iledley, who was connected with  the Hall Mines Exploration Co. for some  time, has visited several mining camps in  Boundary Creek distiict with the object  of gathering information regarding the  best place to erect a smelter. Mr. Iledley  is fully impressed with the necessity of a  large smelter to assist in the development  of the mineral resources of the district.  Should the Hock Creek coal mines turn  out a good quality of coking coal there  will be no difficulty in securing the necessary.capital to erect a smelter.  The Le Roi Declares Another Dividend.  The directors of the Le Roi company  declared a dividend of $25,000 on .Saturday, payable May 29th. This makes a  total of $100,000 that the mine has paid in  dividends since October, .1895. The Le  Itoi company also closed a contract with  .lames Breen. whereby he associates himself with the company for the purpose of  erecting its smelter plant. Colonel I. N.  Peyton and Mreen have left for Denver,  Chicago and Milwaukee to purchase machinery I'or the smelter. Peyton says that  the question as to where the smelter will  be located is still undecided.  RATHER INTERESTING READING MATTER  For the Stockholders in the War Eagle Gold  Mining Company.  The following circular letter has been  sent out to the stockholders in the War  Eagle Gold.Mining company.

When the lots are sold a dividend of the  cash real/.ied on the above items; together  with that now in tlie treasury, will be  paid and the company's affairs closed up.  In this connection it is thought proper,  in justice to the trustees who consummated the saleof the company's property,  to say, that as some of the stockholders  of the company have circulated the report that $700,000 was accepted in preference to $900,000 offered for the property  by others, thereby creating considerable  unfavorable and unjust 'comment, that no  such offer was ever made except in the  shape of an option to purchase in 40 days,  perhaps, paying therefor one or two hundred thousand dollars forfeit. > This was  uiade more than two ..weeks'.after the  property was virtually sold to the parties  paying $700,000 spot cash, hence the'only  way thec option plan could have been  adopted would have been by risking personal liability to the Gooderham. syndicate on the part of the six trustees, viz:  Clark, Corbin, Finch, Wakefield, Campbell and Kingsbury, who in good faith  signed the agreement to sell, and accepted  $200,000 part payment two weeks before  the' option -offer was made; but this we  did not want to do even though we considered the option .plan the best, which,  with the exception of Mr. Corbin, we did  not.

Large cabins  are being built for the accommodation of  the men and a force of miners will be pub  to work stoping at once.

There are 200 tons of ore on the dump,  which gives assays of between $200 and  $300, and the outlook is that tlie none  will be a famous one.

in Nelson and organized a fire company.
During the following summer the executive officers selected lots 1, 2, S and 4, in
block 10, as a site on which to erect a fireman's   hall.     The   lots   belonged  to  the
crown,  and  the representatives' of   the
crown (the provincial government) were
asked to hold them in  trust for the uses
of the fire company, or for the people of
Nelson.   Before action was taken one-half
of the lots iu Nelson were given to the
Columbia & Kootenay Railway Company,
in consideration of that company making
its eastern terminus on the townsite of
Nelson instead of at Grohman Flat or at
"Bogustown," which the company threatened to do.    Among the lots deeded to
the railway company were the four lots
that had been promised  to the fire.com-
pauy.    The government was;so notified
and under date of December 7th, 1891, the
-'- la te Hon. John Robson wrote to the secretary of the fire company, "I have now
to inform you that,.having obtained the
acquiescence of "Mr. Abbott, the lots (1, 2,
S,   and   4,    block   1G)   will    be   granted
as  a site for   Nelson   fire   department."
Deeds did not, pass to the fire company,
for the reason that its officers failed to incorporate the company according to-law;;
but the local representative of the railway company  when approached in the
matter, ..always    expressed    himself   as
ithough there would  be no trouble iii securing title once the fire company was incorporated or the town made a municipality.    The town was made a municipality, and  on  April loth  last the council
held its first meeting.    On April 24th the
mayor, wrote the local representative of
the railway company, informing him that
the  town  was  incorporated, and  asking
that deeds be made for lots 1, 2, 3.and 4,
in block 10.    The reply to the letter came
from  the general superintendent of the
Canadian   Pacific   Railway   conipany at
Vancouver,   and   was   dated   May   20th.
The letter said :    "I am  afraid  that the
" city will have to pay for them  at the
" ordinary list price if they desire to re-
" tain them."   Yet the Air. Abbott who,
■in 1891, acquiesced in the arrangement by
which lots I, 2, S and -I. in  block  Hi, were
granted as a site for a fireman's hall is the
same Air. Abbott who, in   1897,  writes  "1
'• am afraid  that the city will  have to
" pay list price'for the lots if they desire
" to retain them."    Is the old man's memory failing him, or does the Canadian Pacific Railway company expect' to realize
enough from the sale of the four lots to
build the Crow's Nest Pass railway?
Tmc Toronto Telegram must have had
in mind the provincial government of
British Columbia when it said: ''Legislation seems to be the one business in the
world where absolute stupidity is prone
to be taken for the most far-seeing craft,
and ."jolt-head folly for almost superhuman
wisdom."  ,

Fuo.m Rossland it i.s learned that squatters who live upon the Zenith ground, decreed to the Paris Belle people by the supreme court of the province, are receiving
notices from the Nelson & Port Sheppard
railway company to continue to pay rent.
The government may think that the Nelson city squatters have  their gall with
them* but there are others.

In a recent issue of the War Cry appears
the following report of the Salvation
Army's siege of the sinners of Kingston,
Ontario: "The siege at this corps has
" proved a mighty blessing. In all fifty-
" one souls came to the penitent form and
" were reported on by adjutant Stanyon
" on the night of the enrollment as fol-

Tih-:rio is in the east(,at the present a
buddhist preacher named Dharmapala,
who seems to be as good a Christian as
any, in this country, measured by the
■'charity" standard of St. Paul. This enlightened preacher says he does not ask
for converts from Christianity to Buddhism. If we are really Christians, he says,
we need not trouble about Buddha, for
we already have the. very best that
Buddha can give us. If Dharmapala is a
fair example of what Buddhism can do
for a man, -the religion will commend
itself to many Christians. There is such
a breadth of religious view in the remarks
of the preacher, and such a delightful
willingness to admit that all truth is not
in the keeping of anyone sect, that his
words will strike a responsive chord in
the breasts of all who understand the
philosophy of the gentle Nazarene.
' ■■ Charlbton's Sabbath observance bill
has.beeu reduced to the clause prohibit-
ing" the preparation or publication of a
newspaper for sale on Sunday. The only
effect of thjs clause in British Columbia
will be to greatly increase the hours of
(Sunday labor for printers and newspaper
men. A Sunday morning paper, such as
are all those published in this province,
is prepared ou Saturday and issued early
on Sunday morning. In order to give
their employes a chance to rest on Sundays the British Columbia morning dailies
do not issue any paper on Monday mornings. But if their Sunday issue is cut off
they will have to make their, men work
on Suuday to get out a paper on Alonday.

BOUNDARY   OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.
upon this'complication, and the condition
of affairs is one which may possibly lead
to grave trouble, especially in view of the
fact that this portion of the boundary
is in the immediate neighborhood of the
recently discovered rich mineral deposits
of the Kootenay mining region.
To fully ascertain the .meaning of this
duplication of lines, it  will be necessary
to obtain from the imperial authorities a
copy of the field notes of the line, which
was surveyed by the Royal  Engineers, in
concert with the  I'nited States commission, about Sii years ago.    Air. Johnston,
chief geographer of this department, was
sent to England last.June to procure copies
of the fieltl notes and descriptions of this
as well as of other portions of the line between Canada and the United States. The
lack of the original survey records of those
portions of the boundary which have been
defined not  by  natural   features, but by
artificial   monuments,   is   seriously    felt
when a reestablishment of the lineor,.as
in this case, a supplementary determination is desired.    Air. Johnston's  unfortunate illness, however, rendered his return
necessary before his object had beeu ae-'
complished. In the meantime the services
of Alessrs.   AlcArthur and  St. Cyr have
been utilized toward making a connection
between  the Dominion land surveys   of
the  railway belt at Revelstoke and the
boundary   line-at the place .mentioned.
Their  triangulation,  when finished, will
serve not only to define the astronomical
position of the points in question, but will
afford points of connection for the explorations  of the geological  survey   in   the
Kootenay mining region."'  Uufortunately,
on account of the excessive quantity of
smoke  from bush fires ,and  unfavorable
weather in the early part of the season,_.
their survey has not- been completed. The
terminal point is near the town of Nakusp,
about  midway  between Revelstoke and
the boundary line. Another season's work
will  be necessary to   complete the connection."

Canada's Trade is Growing.
The trade returns published in the
official Gazette on Saturday, show a satisfactory increase in the volume of trade, as
well as in the duty. The imports were
$S,39."5,928 for the month of April, compared with $7,910,111 for the same month
'last year. The duty collected was $1,772,-
005, an increase of $197.0(58 over April 1S9G.
Exports were $G,0o8,(.90, compared with
$4,8:"5S,902 for April last year. For ten
months of the present fiscal year the increase in the volume of trade was nearly
$11,000,000 over the same time last year.
Imports were $93,19S,592, compared with
$92,022,405 for ten months in 1896, while
duty was $10,911^091, as against $17,030,210
for IS9G, a decrease of $97,519. Exports
were $106,329,S74 for 1097, and $90,90.3,4.30
for 1890.
Tin-; British Columbians who are interested in the putting up of salmon caught
in traps in adjoining American waters,
threaten to remove certain of their canneries to the other side of the line if the
Dominion government persists in its resolve to place an import duty of: half a
cent a pound on imported fresh salmon.
The duty is practically prohibitive, and
though the workers of British Columbia
generally urge that some duty should be
imposed on imported salmon caught in
the objectionable monster traps located
on the other side'of the line, it is probably,
under existing circumstances, unwise to
There are questions pending with the

most important is in regard to the boundary '■••'■<    British Columbia and the
state of Washington. Some of the richest
gold fields on  the continent lie close to
the   border,   Rossland  itself   being only
eight   miles   from  the   line.    Some four
years ago the government of British Columbia directed attention  to  the lack  of
boundary marks.   The completion of the

commissioners' stall' to look into the matter.   Deputy minister Burgess says:    "It
seems, however, that there is a complication on this part of the 49th parallel, over
aud above that due to  the mere lack of
monuments.    It appears that for a considerable distance in the Boundary Creek
and Grand Prairie  regions  there  is evidence of two lines having been surveyed,
marked   and   cut  out.    These   lines   are
about 100 yards apart; both, it is stated,
are equally well cut out, and were apparently run  about the same time, but the
monuments   on   the, northern    line  are
pulled down very completely, while those
on the south line are standing in  good
condition. To the east of Boundary Creek
the monuments are in ruins in the south
line and are standing on  the north line,
while at Boundary creek there are monuments standing on both lines.   At Grand
Prairie the land is being farmed by United
States citizens up to the north line. There
is  nothing of record here in connection
with   the   survey   of   the   international
boundary which  would  throw any light

with the cut of the balloon have not here
benn distributed.
The speaker concluded with expressing
his firm conviction that the outlook for
the expedition is as good if not better this
year than the last. After, Mr. Andree's
iecture, ■ Dr. Jarderin, the astronomer,
arose and demonstrated before the society
a very valuable improvement on the
usual sextant, enabling the observer to
make careful determinations even if he is
oscillating and above the ground as when
ho i-i sitting in the car of a balloon. Dr.
Jarderin calls, his instrument "nivasex-
tant" (the level sextant), and experiments
have shown the error to'amount to only
about,two minutes. Dr. Nils 13k holm will
not accompany j\lr. Audree. He has
backed out, ns'jie does not consider the
undertaking likely to succeed. The party
will now consist of Mr. Andree, chief engineer (nfveringenior) at the Swedish
patent nflice; Mr. Strindberg, amanuensis
at the University of Stockholm, and lastly
Mr. Fraenckel. civil engineer.

ANDEBE'S   POLAR   BALLOON.
On the 20tli of March last, before  the
society for anthropology and geography,
in Stockholm, Sweden, Mr. S. A. Andree,
the baloonist and explorer, gave a full account of the preparations for the coming
polar expedition.   The  plan  for  the ascension is the same as last year's; some
slight changes, however, are made in the
equipment, based on experiences during
the trip to Spitsbergen last summer.  The
balloon has been increased in volume "'00
cubic meters.    This was effected  by cutting the balloon in two and inserting between the two halves a girdle one meter
high.    It was found necessary to increase
the volume, as the balloon silk weighed-
close upon 800 kilograms , more than calculated.     Its   weight   is  now J,320  kilograms.    The form is now somewhat elliptical.   The balloon is in good condition.
Tho strength and tightness of the silk is
unaltered.    Mr. Strindberg, who has undertaken these important investigations,
has found the loss of gas through the balloon   cloth to be almost nil.    Last year
the   entire   balloon   was   found    to   lose
through the cloth one or two cubic meters
of gas during the 2-1 hours,   for the tightness of the seams the overlying liscs play
an   important  part.    Without   them   the
-balloon would not be able to keep floating
many clays.    During the winter the lightning lists have been improved and altered
according to the new form of the balloon.
The maker, Monsieur Lachambre. has invented a new varnish especially for this
balloon.     By   experiment   it    has    been
learned- that  moisture  has- no, influence
upon the tightness of the scams, aud  this
fact has caused Mr". Andree to somewhat
simplify tlie  construction of the balloon
house.    The net is just as strong as ever.
There is every reason to believe that the
balloon   house   has   well   withstood   the
arctic winter of Spitsbergen.   Still it goes
without saying that the travelers will be
provided   with  every  means   quickly to
make necessary repairs.
For generation of hydrogen gas so much
material will be brought along that the
balloon can be kept filled six weeks, awaiting favorable winds, even if the loss of
gas should amount to 100 cubic meters in
twenty-four hours. Air. Andree hopes to
be able to start about June 20th, and is
thus able to wait for suitable winds up to
the first day of August, and to start later
in the year is not to be thought of. From
several quarters the fear has been expressed that the drag Hues might catch
hold of something on the ground and arrest the balloou.' Air. Andree himself did
not much believe in the danger, but noy
the expedition has been presented with a
very ingenious device for cutting the line
at any desired point. The apparatus consists of a cylindrical metal case, which
can be made to slide down the line to
where it is intended to be cut. Inside ot
the metal case are two sharp knives driven
forward with great force through the explosion, of a quantity of powder. Air.
Andree exhibited a thick cable cut in this
way. The expedition leaves La-then burg
ou May 10th. The time for the voyage to
Spitsbergen and for the preparatory work
there is calculated to be four or five weeks.
Nothing tends to indicate that the winter
at Spitsbergen has been severe, and there
i.s every reason to believe that the expedition will iind the sea free from ice.
Nausea's observations were, as far as
the speaker knew, favorable for the balloon journey. This was as well regarding
the temperature and the variations of the
compass as the direction of the winds.
Toward the end of June and in the beginning of July tlie "L<Yam" had in the polar
basin experienced identical winds with
those which Mr. Andree had noticed at
Spitsbergen. Dr. Nansen has confirmed
another important fact, vis., that no highlands are to be met with up to8-1 tli or 85th
degree of latitude. The explorers need
not therefore fear the necessity of consuming a great amount of gas by lifting
themselves over any mountain ranges. If
we are so fortunate, the speaker continued, that we may choose our way, I would
rather, since Dr. Nansen has so well explored the polar region toward the Asiatic
side, steer our balloon toward the American continent. This part of the world is
not now so desolate and uninhabited as it
was when the Franklin expedition perished. Ever since 1880 American vessels
have been stationed about the mouth of
the Mackenzie river for hunting purposes,
and twelve to fifteen ships pass the winter there w-ith 400 or "JOO oeople aboard.
The speaker had got these particulars of a
Swedish harpooner, Bertonocini, who
has been a long time in the American service there. Along the coast of Alaska are
to be found more or less civilised Indians
and Esquimaux. In the interior of Alaska
are to be found a. great number of gold
diggers. Among the inhabitants of these
A^ist regions information concerning the
He is of Greek  Origin   and   Had a Christian
■ Training, but Hates Christians Now.
Edhem  Pasha, the  commander of the
Turkish  army in   the  present war  with
Greece, who has just been recalled and
loaded with the Sultan's honors, has had a
most  romantic and   interesting history.
He is not only of Greek origin, but also of
Christian   parentage.    However, strange
to say, he is an, enthusiastic and fanatic
Alohammedau   and  loyal  subject of the
present Sultan.    His  change of religion
was caused by a number, of strange circumstances which occurred in his youth.
He was born on the beautiful island of
Ohio, in the"Aegean sea.    This island was
famous iii ancieut history, and is said to
have been the birthplace of Homer.   It is
seven miles from the coast of Asia Alinor,
and is situated on the Gulf of Smyrna.   Ic
is known for its great productivity, mild
climate and natural beauty.
For centuries Ohio has been under Turkish rule, although  the largest-part of its
population  is  of Greek  descent.    In the
many wars and insurrections for Grecian
liberty, the  people of this lovely island
have always borne the brunt of Turkish
cruelty and tyranny.  This was especially
true in 1822, when the Greeks began a long
struggle for freedom.    Edhem 1'asha was
then a small  child.   The inhabitants of
Ohio did not participate in the insurrections which occurred that year, but were
following their usual occupations.    How-
ever, a body of revolutionists came from
the island ol Samoas and lauded in  Ohio.
They endeavored to excite  the inhabitants to revolution,- but met with  no success. The Uhiotes answered that it would
be foolish for them to revolt, because the
absence of a Greek fleet rendered them almost certain prey to tbe Sultan's troops
on the mainland.   ThcSamians, however,
-refused to obey, and laid siege-to the citadel, then occupied by a Turkish garrison.
The Turkish forces  were driven out and
the fortress reduced to ashes.    Soon after
an army of seven thousand Turks, with a
host of  fanatical  volunteers,  landed  on
the island.    For weeks after  the soldiers
aud the roving hordes of Ottomans slew,
pillaged and tortured the inhabitants.  Iu-.
parts of the island the people took refuge
in the monasteries, but were pursued and
killed by thousands.    Even the sick in the
•hospitals were not spared.    Over twenty-
three thousand men, women, and children
were killed,  five   thousand   escaped and
forty  seven   thousand    were   sold    into
slavery, and glutted the slave markets of
Egypt, Constantinople and Tunis.
Edhem Pasha's parents were among the
killed. He was sold;to a Turkish geueral
named Ivhosseo Pasha, who took liim to
Constantinople. His master, however,
gave him his liberty, and with a number
of boys he was sent to Paris to be educated. He entered the Institute Barbet,
where heremaiued.four years. He evinced
great industry and scholarship, and all
his teachers predicted for him a great
future and brilliant career. After graduating from this school, with great honor,
he entered a school of mines, and four
cmore years were spent in close application
arid,-study. After travelling through1
France, Germany, and Switzerland, he returned to Constantinople and was appointed a captain on the general staff of
the Turkish army. In .18-19 the Sultan
made him his adjutant, aud he also became the French instructor of the late
Sultan Alurad, and of the present ruler,
Abdul Humid. Later on he was entrusted
with a number of important political missions. In 1850 he became a member of the
council of state, and was then appointed
minister of the interior, but resigned his
portfolio after a year. In 1807 he became
minister of foreign affairs, and subsequently represented his country at Berlin.
In ''1877', upon the banishment of Alidhat
Pasha, he became grand visier, which
position he filled with great ability. In
187!) he was ambassador to Vienna, and
from ISSo to 1885 he was again minister of
the interior. c
.Edhem Pasha has always shown great
hatred toward foreigners aud against
Christians. At the peace conference at
the end of the liussiaii-Turkish war in
1877, he was the last of the Turkish ministers to give his consent to the final settlement of hostilities. He had always been
an enthusiastic Turkish Chauviuist. He
is a zealous member of the Young Turkish
Party, which has proclaimed the doctrine
of the greatness of Islam and Turkey for
the Turks.
It is interesting to note that Edhem
Pasha's brother was for many years a
Catholic priest in the city of Constantinople.    He died a few years ago.
Japan's New Standard.
It is stated that Japan's change to gold
monometallism is dictated chiefly by the
conviction that silver has reached virtually its lowest point, and that its sterling
price may be expected to ■appreciate
largely within the next few years. Her
financiers would probably decline to
reckon the chances of precisely the opposite contingency.   They are fully sensible
of the great advantages that their-country's industry and commerce have derived from rhe employment of a currency
constantly depreciating in terms of the
currency of the markets where they sell
their commodities. But they think (hat
they have drunk to the depths of that
well of prosperity, and that the time has,
now come to guard themselves against
the upward swing of the silver pendulum.
In short,they have been made rich by
.silver that cheapened steadily in terms of
gold, aud now, thinking that the Occident
inclines towards bimetallism, they want
to be made richer by gold that cheapens
in terms of silver. ■ It has been said that
Japan is the pet child of fortune. If this'
new experiment succeeds, who can deny
her right to the title?
, Canada's Population Increasing.
The population of Canada steadily progresses. As estimated by the department
of agriculture for the last fiscal year ibis
5,125,130. The estimated population of
ISO! was -1,8-13,2*30, aud the census showed
that ,the actual figures were -1,8**8,239.
The estimates that are made from year to
year are based on the immigration returns and the average birth and mortality rate. The figures since last census
given from year to vear are as follows:
1802, -1.877.00S; 1893, J.005.25S: 189-J, 5,012,-
188: 1805, 5,082,42-1; 1800,5,125,130.

~wt: THE  TRIBUNE:   NELSON,  B.C., SATURDAY,  MAY 29,  1S97.  (������  LOCAL- NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  The Muldoon, on ('oat creek, is a claim  owned by W. C. Chase, who hopes to put  it ou the shipping list soon. He has .just  returned from a visit to the property and  brings back some line specimens oi: rock  from that section.  The party which has been placed in the  field by ('eorge A. Keel'er for the preliminary survey of the Hedlington 6c Nelson  railway began work at the boundary line,  and will run down the Kootenay river to  the lake on the east. side. .It is probable  that it will then run back on the opposite  side to ascertain which is the more feasible route fur the contemplated road.  , The appeal in the assault case of. Tebo  vs. Houston lias been allowed by Judge  Forin, and the penalty imposed upon the  defendant by IIarokl .Selous is therefore quashed.  Honeyman <fc Son have abandoned the  government lots they had selected as a  site for their foundry, and will build further up the shore in Hogustown, near the  Nelson 6c Fort Sheppard railway depot.'  A large consignment of their machinery  has arrived. The foundry building will  be built with all possible speed.  James Grant, a young man who has  been employed as a waiter on the Kokanee for about a mouth, was locked up  by the city police on a charge of having  stolen a watch and chain and about $40  from TV. I\ Sloane of Boundary creek,  who was a passenger oncthe boat on her  trip from'Kaslo yesterday. Grant is also  charged with having broken into the baton the boat and tapped the till of about  SS. The eases came up before the stipendiary magistrate Fitzstubbs this morning  but were remanded until Tuesday next  on account of the absence of important  withesses.  The system pursued by the N. & F. S.  railway in imposing fines] upon passengers who are unable to purchase tickets at the company's ollices should be  stopped. From a reliable source the Tribune learns that the company not only  uses the customary cupon redeemable for  25 cents, but it exacts a fine of 2*5 cents as  well. This is a cinch game that should  not be tolerated. The company already  has a considerable rake-off in the matter  of coupons that are never cashed and in  putting people to the trouble of cashing  such coupons and fining them as well the  railway company is overreaching itself.  The final payment of $30,000 on the Fern  . raiue was made to-day by the Montreal  and B. C. Prospecting company, and the  property will now be turned over to the  Fern Gold Mining company. The latter  company has let a contract to Dave Mc-  Beath i'or the construction of a wagon  road from Hall siding on the Nelson &  Fort Shepherd railway to the company's  mill site on the Fern. The road will be  four miles in length.  The Minerva Mining company have let  a contract to continue the present tunnel  100 feet further on their propeifcy near  Sanca. Work will be commenced immediately and push ahead with all possible  speed.  ARCHITECT  Room C>, Clements & Hillyer Block, Nelson  C.   IE.  DOTT  KASLO,   B.C.
