 -____!  ��� *-��  m  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MORNING DECEMBER 12-1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MINM AFFAIRS IN THE BOUNDARY  The  Future  of Greenwood and  Other Camps in That  Section Exceedingly Bright.  ARE DESTINED TO BECOME GREAT COPPER PRODUCERS  Percy.F. Godenratli, press correspondent, Greenwood, is in the city.  , lie reports considerable mining  activity iu tho various camps of  r the Boundary district, particularly  in Deadwood and Phcenix. '.In  Dead wood camp seven properties  are being opened up. Of those the  well known Mother Lode is the  most extensively developed, aud is  preparing to maintain a daily output of uot less than 300 tons when  the British Columbia Copper Company's smelter, now nearing completion at Greenwood, is blown in.  This will occur about the middle of  January. The smelter will blow in  with one furnace of a daily capacity  of 300 tons, though the expectation  ' of the management is to have this  doubled early in the year. Recent  notable strikes of a splendid grade  of gold-copper ore in Deadwood  have been made on the Marguerite  at the 100-foot level and on the  Crown Silver at a depth of 250 feet  in the shaft. Other well known  properties in this camp that before  many months will be on a shipping  basis are tlie Sunset, Greyhound  and Morrison.  Tlie resumption of development  on the properties of the Dominion  Copper company,limited, iu Phoenix  ' ^Tiup- last week was a matter of  more than passing interest to the  whole district. James Breen, well  known in connection with the  Northport smelter, .which he designed and successfully operated, is  at the head of a syndicate composed  of New York and Butte -capitalists,  who"' have secured control of the  stock of this company.    It.is given  ..out that the syndicate propose expending not less than $1,000,000 on  the development of the several properties owned by tho company  and ou the erection of a  smelter. This assures to the  city of Phoenix a handsome addition to its payroll and to the district a fourth smelter. Tho mines  under operation by tho Miner-  Graves syndicate in the same camp  have a daily output of 000 tons.  The Snowshoe, owned by a London  company, has also joined the shipping list just recently. In the adjoining camp, Wellington, the  Athelstan is being opened up, with  excellent results, and has already  shipped 1000 tons. Tho Winnipeg,  which was closed down pending tlie  reorganizatiou of the company, will  ^startnip^about^heTirst-of^the'yearr  On the Brandon & Golden Crown it  is stated work will be resumed  about the same time. W. J. Porter, one of the directors of the  company, has gone to Brandon to  submit a scheme to secure additional funds to carry on development. This mine has shipped  about 2000 tons to tlie Trail  smelter.  "Over in Summit camp the B.C.  mine is the chief producer. It is  given out that a resumption of work  on both the Emma and Oro Denero  is to take place shortly.  The pyritic smelter, now under  construction on Boundary creek,  three miles below Greenwood, will  blow in sometime toward the end of  .January. It is being built by tho  Standard PyriticSmeltiug company,  a subsidiary of the Standard Copper company, of whicli Andrew  Liidlaw is the guiding spirit and  managing director. The pyritic  smelter will have an initial capacity  of 250 tons and will to a large extent be a custom plant. Quebec  capital is interested in the undertakings ',of the Standard Copper  company, which was formed  a little less than a year since  and has already expended in securing properties, development work  and on the construction and equipment of the smelter a sum in the  aggregate totaling over $200,000.  Mr. Godenratli, from his knowledge of the mines of that section,  firmly believes the Boundary dis-  ' tvicf is destined to become the leading producer of copper in the province, and in the not too distant  future will take a front place in the  ^production of the 'red metal with  pome of the older and better known  camps of the continent. He re-  Bards Greenwood as the coming  Butte of the Boundary.  Coal Mining at Livingstone.  M. II. Cowan of Spokane was in  the city yesterday en route to  Livingstone, N. W. T., where he is  interested in tho new coal fields  which Montana capitalists are developing. ��� At present a shaft is  being sunk to explore the coal bed  and a depth of about 300 feet has  been reached. Three, shifts are worked  and each averages three feet,  making the average daily gain in  depth nine feet. The syndicate's  intention is to sink 000 feet if the  deposit is continuous, and then to  crosscut for the purpose of exploring other measures believed to exist  iuthe samedeposit.  Will Ship to Nelson.  J. A. Macdonald,-president of the  London Consolidated^ Mining Company, and Henry Roy, manager of  the company, were- in the city yesterday and met J. J. Campbell,  commercial manager of the Hall  Mines smelter. The result of the  conference was an arrangement  whereby the company will ship the  output of the Silver Hill mine to  Nelson for treatment. A contract  has been closed for the teaming of  3000 tons of ore during the winter  with a further contract for 2000  tons additional conditional on the  weather.   Work at the Tamarac.  Development is being carried on  steadily at the Tamarac mine.in  the Ymir camp in anticipation of  extensive shipmeuts during the  winter. The standards for the  tramway aro also being erected.  Superintendent Roberts is in  charge of the mine, with foreman  Masters, who is one of the heaviest*  stockholders, as second in command.  The management estimate that  they have 15,000 tons of ore in  sight whicli will average $10 per  ton throughout. The initial shipments will probably begin about  January 15 th.  MiniBg Records.

Italy Will Not Withdraw.  RoMiii,. December 11.���In the  chamber of deputies taday a resolution was introduced calling upon  the government to recall the troops  in China. Senor Saracho, the premier, made the following reply:  ���'To recall the troops would be unjustifiable at the present moment,  when negotiations for peace are in  progress. Moreover, Italy is entitled to reap the advantages of  her participation in ��� the action of  thepowers in China. The government desires that the negotiations  in Pekin should be pressed forward  as much as possible and will withdraw the Italian troops from China  as soon as the dignity and interests  of the country will allow." The  chamber then rejected the resolution by an overwhelming vote.  To Get Down to Business.  London, December 12.���Reports  from Chinese sources, says the  Shang-Hai correspondent of the  Times, wiring-Monday, point to the  probability that serious negotiations for peace will begin forthwith.  It is believed that a short preliminary protocol is in process of arrangement, leaving many questions,  including commercial subjects, to  separate conventions to be drawn  up later. The powers should retain  their troops in China until these  questions are settled and until tangible evidence is given that China  honestly intends to fulfill her engagements. Progressive Chinameu  regard the time as a great opportunity to overthrow the reactionary Manchu methods and-to inaugurate a regime of national progress.  It is urged that the powers should  insist upon the' cancellation of the  name of the present heir apparent,  prince Ttian's son, and the substitution of an heir of full ago, free  from any connection with the Tuan  party. Such a man is available, and  the step is declared to be legally  possible.   ^_   A Royal Murderer.  BiSRiaiaV, December, 11.���An immense sensation has been created  throughout the length-and breadth  of Germany by the extraordinary  favors granted in the case of prince  Prosper Arenber, of the formerly  reigning house of that name, who  has been sentenced to 15 years'  penal servitude for a particularly  atrocious murder of a half-breed  official iii the German colonies on  the west coast of Africa.  The prince, who is only brother  of the duke, of Arenberg, of Croy  and of Meppen, there being but the  life of the duke's infant sou between the princely convict and the  family honors, first of all cut down  the unfortunate official with his  sword, then fired three bullets into  his prostrate body with a revolver,  finishing' him up by poking his  riding stick into the gaping wound  of the dying man.  Tlie prince, after his conviction  and-sentence here-at Berlin, was  conveyed to the military penitentiary at Hanover, not in the ordinary prison car, but by special  train, and orders have been given  that lie is to be addressed by all  the prison oificials as "Your Highness;" that he is to be allowed to  furnish" his cell himself, and to  procure his meals from an outside  caterer, and that not only is he to  be exempt from the ordinary prison  regulations, but that he is to be  permitted to select himself the kind  of "hard labor" he prefers.  A HOT IRISH CONVENTION  HARRINGTON   AND   O'BRIENITES  CANT   AGREE.  Discussion of the Boer War Precipitates  Trouble and a Stormy Time Is  the Consequence.  Dublin, December 11.���There was  a large attendance of delegates to  the convention of the Nationalists,  whicli assembled under the presidency of John Redmond. On  motion of John Dillon, a resolution  was adopted amid cheers that the  South African war had been entered  upon in pursuance of a conspiracy  =to=deprive=two=fi'ee=uatious=of"their;  liberty in the interests of capitalists  and mine owners. William O'Brien  introduced a resolution excluding  Timothy Healy from the parliamentary party for the sake of  unity. Timothy Harrington, who  was frequently interrupted, said  that if the action of tho delegates-  plunged the country back into the  vortex oi despair further generations would curse the convention  and those who participated in it.  ���' 1-Io^wasli," yelled an O'Brienite in  the gallery. "0, 1 know where the  hog is," said Mr. Harrington, which  caused protests and cries of "Ho is  calling his fellow patriots hogs."  Mr. Harrington continued, after the  chairman had admonished the cou.-  vention to give him a fair hearing.  Great excitement marked- the discussion of Mr. O'Brien's resolution,  which included tlie exclusion of J.  L. Carew. There were loud shouts  on all sides of "Put it to the lights,"  which were met with couuter demonstrations by Healyites.  After other speeches an amendment, taking the bitterness out of  the resolution, was proposed by  father McNeiro,, 'but-; this was rejected overwhelmingly and Mr.  O'Brien's resolution was adopted.  The convention then adjourned  until tomorrow.  Norwegian Landslides.  Christiana, December 11.���Another serious landslide has occurred  in Heligoland. Thirty houses have  been engulfed aud a considerable  portion of the island has been for  three days under water. Thus far  it has been impossible to seud relief  and the losses have not yet been  determined. .  NELSON'S NEW POSTOFFICE  BUILDING TO   BE   SUBSTANTIAL  AND HANDSOME.  Granite,   Marble   and   Pressed   Brick  Will Bo Used in Its Construction  ���High Wages Will Bo Paid.  The completed plans for the  Dominion governmentoflices.postal,  customs and inland revenue, arrived  here yesterday ari'^-are now in the  office of Cane &>' Macdouald, who  are to be in charge^ of the work, for  the convenience" of contractors who  desire to figure on the job. The  building will be the most costly in  the city, a contractor roughly estimating that it will not be completed  at less than $70,000-or $75,000, and  the design is rather moi*o elaborate  than that adopted -for any of the  business blocks yet constructed.  Tenders for the work are to be iu  hands of the department of public  works by January 3rd and it is  thought that the contract will be  let within three,weeks of that date.  If work is commenced at that timo  the building may be completed by  the following Christmas,, but no  one. need be surprised'if .Nelson's  new postolfico should not be finished  before the middle bf 1902.'  In typo the.* proposed building  follows the Romanesque style. The  foundations and il-base walls are to  be granite, the first story of native  marble, . the second of native  pressed brick -aiid the third, or  attic, of pressed* .brick with slated  roof and copper cornices. The  building faces Vernon street, and  at the corner is-*a tower crowned  with metal work rising 01 feet  above tho ground. On Vernon  street the building ;has a front of  5ft feet, 3 inches,- while on Ward  street the main building runs back  52 feet, where it is continued in an  annex OS by 20 feet to the back of  the lot, where a granite wall run's  across the entire lot. This forms a  yard, into which teams delivering  mail and customs matter can drive  through a 10-foot alley on the east  side opening from Vernon street.  The main entrance is on Vernon  street, and a seconl entrance gives  admission from Ward street to tho  annex containing the customs examining warehouse, mail entrance,  gas inspector's office aud  vestibule.  The basement of the first floor is  given over wholly to the heating  apparatus aud coal bunkers. The  first floor is devoted exclusively to  the postal department and the arrangements for the convenience of  the public look as though they were  almost perfect. The secontystory  ibl_longsnfco"tlT__customs and revenue  officials. The east half is the customs long room where the public  will transact business with the department. The bixlauce of the flat  is divided by a hall into which open  the custom collector's private office  and an apartment for a postoffice  inspoctor, which would seem to indicate that the government will  locate an inspector at Nelson. The  inland revenue department has  three apartments, a general office, a  collector's office and a laboratory.  At the rear of tho flat is a lavatory..  On the third floor or attic, as it is  termed on the plans, are the caretakers' quarters and these aro  commodious. Tho janitor has a  parlor, dining-room, four bedrooms,  a kitchen aud a bathroom.  The building is to be well finished  throughout. The basement beneath  the examining warehouse and gas  inspector's office will be concrete  and cemented floors. In the vestibules on Ward and Vernon streets  the floors and wainscoting will be  tile, and the entrances finished in  dressed marble and cut stone. The  offices and caretaker's quarters will  be floored with British Columbia  fir aud the stairs and entrance doors  are to be oak. Plate glass will also  enter into the construction of the  doors.  A special feature of the building  is the fact that the wages which  contractors are required to pay will  be the standard scale of the district  as arrauged by special commissioner  O'Donohue who visited Nelson a  couple of months ago to consult  with the heads of the various  unions on the matter. As a result  of the commissioner's report the  department   has fixed a minimum  scale of wages whicli contractors  must figure upon.

Nrw York, December 11.���With  the thousand mile mark but .a score  of miles ahead of them, nine of the  six-day bicycle riders at Madison  Square Garden at midnight tonight  were keeping up the hurricane pace  set for them afc midnight Sunday.

Turville aud  Gimm made a great spurt just before midnight and were then only  one lap back of the foremost. The  12 o'clock score is : Elkes and McFarland 900.3, Sinar and Gougelit/.e  000.2, Wal lei- and Sfcinson 000,Fisher  and .Frederick 905.8, Muller and  Aceoutri 017.0, Pierce and McEachern 000.!},' Turville and Gimm  900.1, Kakcock and Aronson 9(5(1,  Kasor and Ityser 005.0.  The nine teams had been riding  with amazing strength ever since  midnight last night without changing their comparative scores. This  relative position the riders maintained all through the early hours  of the morning and up to this evening. At S o'clock in the morning, a  time wheu the vitality of the riders  is at its lowest ebb, Waller and  Gimm collided with a crash aud six  tired aud sleepy men on the line  rode straight into'them and many  bruised limbs and broken wheels  was the result. Fortunately no one  was seriously injured.  Shortly after the noon hour the  758-mile mark was in sight. Gougelitze was then leading the line and  he was the first of the racers to  pass the mark, his time being .'30  hours 38 minutes and .30 seconds, a  new record. At 2 o'clock in tlie  afternoon occurred the sensation,  though mild in itself, that gave the  leaders their advantage of one lap.

Instantly cries arose  through the building as the other  riders shot ahead and their trainers  urged them on.  McEachern was leading. He flew  at a terrific pace, carrying the  others with him. The Frenchman's  trainers rushed down stairs after  Sinar and he was put on the track  half asleep and half dazed. In tho  meantime Gougelitze on his crippled  machine fell in front of the trainers.  He was fit in an instant and on  another wheel, like a startled deer,  he rushed after the bunch. They  were a lap and a half to tho good  and riding hard to make it two  laps. The Frenchman pedaled like  a demon and gradually caught the  field. He had lost a lap, however,  and the leaders in tho race. Theu  they relieved him, but not until  after Gougelitze swore to gain that  lap before the hour had passed. He  returned to tho race at 'i o'clock  aud said he believed some one had  tampered with his wheel to cause  the puncture. President Powers  appointed Charles Murphy, the  bicycle rider, to keep a strict watch  of the wheels, especially of the foreign riders, to prevent any trouble.  At the end of the 48 hours the  leading teams were three miles  ahead of the record.  Will Marry Jeffries.  Nrw HaWKiV, Connecticut, December 11.���Dorothy Drew, the  actress, admitted tonight that she  is engaged to marry .lames J. Jeffries, champion pugilist of the  world. ������Yes," she said, at a dinner  given in her honor at the Elkdene,  "I love' Jim; but I don't love him  half as much as he loves me. These  pugilists have strong, healthy  hearts, and they know how to  love."  Jeffi ies was here all j eslerday  dressed in such light, foriuxl  clothes that he could hardly Malk.  He wore a chrysanthemum as large  as a cabb.ige, and he strutted about  with so much sslf-c->nscioi.s less  that all hit, fiiends were sure that  there was something in tho wind.  "If Miss Drew says I'm engaged (o  her, well, I am," ho said. "Tf she  doesn't, I'm not." That's all they  could get out of him. The formal  announcement was not made till  this evening. "I shall not marry  the champion until after his next  light," sho said, "so the date is a  little indefinite."  It is understood that Jeffries'  plans to fight Fitzsimmons, defeat  him easily, rake in a small fortune  on the result, marry Miss Drew and  retire in a blaze of glory to the  saloon business. Jeffries makes love  on a wholesale scale. Someone told  him that it was the custom when a ,  man became engaged to send can-'  dies to his fiancee. He walked into  a confectioner's store and asked for  some.  "How much will you have ?"'  asked the young woman.  "Oh, about fifty or sixty pounds,"  said the champion after he- had  scratched his head awhile. Then he  took his present around to Miss  Drew, who was  highly  astonished.  New Cup Defender.

It is "understood  that parties are willing to back a  new evening paper in Nelson. IFis-  to be Conservative "in politics and  to be named the Nelson Evening  News. '  ' '''  Nihlson has two public utilities  that if carefully managed, man-  ' aged in the interests of all the property owners, Avill pay all the civic  expenses, exclusive of street improvements. What is wanted is a  mayor and council who will administer the business of the city with  but one object in view, that is, the  city's interests .first, last and all  the time.        .   A well-known citi/.en, it is said,  liassignifiedawillingnesstomakethe  "., race for mayor at the coming election. If the report is correct as to  his willingness, Nelson will be lucky  to have him for mayor. He is a  business man who understands the  duties of a responsible office, and  he has the force of character that  the mayor of Nelson should have  at a time when the investments of  the city are in danger from the  greed of outside corporations.  The Miner even is ashamed of  the action of the city council in or-  deiing the reinstatement of W. J.  Thompson as chief of the fire department in face of the. facts  brought out" by the investigation,  and calls on the council to expunge  from the minute book all trace of  what the mayor stated in regard to  phe charges which he proved.   The,  Miner sees the handwriting on the  wall as plainly as did Belsha/./.ar at  the feast. The handwriting on the  wall at that feast was explained by  Daniel as .meaning: "Thou art  weighed in the balance aud found  wanting." History sometimes repeats itself; but no one ever reckoned that the Miner could prophecy.  It has prophesied that the members  of the council must keep all traces  of their weakness from public gaze,  or the people will turn them down  should they ever ��� offer themselves  again as candidates for oflice.  Within a month Nelson will have  two elections. One is a civic affair;  the other is one that alone concerns  the business interests of the city.  AU the business men of Nelson are,  or-should^be.interestecLin^the^board  of trade. It has a good-sized membership, but too many of the members take no interest in the proceedings of the board, giving as a reason that-the board is no longer representative of the best business  interests of the city; that it has  become a mere auxiliary ,of the  Mine Owners' Association. This  may not bo a statement of fact; but  the business men of Nelson have it  in their power to make tlie board  what it should be, that is, the official mouthpiece of the business interests of Nelson. AVill they do it?  Is it worth the effort?  To Return to St.-Petersburg.

Mining-.  Congressman Henry C. Smith of  Michigan, who promised to be baptized if re-elected, must now pay  his forfeit, and the ladies of Woodstock are going to see th.it he is  properly immersed. . Mr. Smith is a  Quaker, who has been practicing  law iu Adrian, his home, since 18S0.  He has been a conspicuous stump  orator in every Republican campaign for the .past twenty years.  Jle attended the Republican convention at 'St.;' Louis in-lS9_ as  alternate, and was elected to congress two years ago as a Republican.  Mr. Smith is in favor of postponing  his baptism until the water is less  x-hilly than ifc is at present.  The shah of Persia left behind  -him, at Buda-Pesth, 1500 eases filled  with his purchases in Europe, and  100 cycles, which are to be sent on  to Persia. The cycles are intended  for his courtiers. .Before leaving  Hungary a check for $5000, issued  by the Imperial Bank of Teheran,  was cashed in Buda-Pesth. Tli is is  the fourth check of the same  amount which his majesty cashed.  It is estimated thatr apart from the  -jewels brought from Persia for presents, the journey will have cost the  shah's private purse $2,500,000. The  shah bought a quantity of false  jewelry in Vienna for presentation  to the ladies of his household.  Harry ��� Vardon, the world's greatest golfer, has decided to take up  his   abode   in the  United   States.  Vardon will tour tho California resorts this winter, although reports  thus far havo had him returning to  his green  at  Ganton,-England, for  the holidays, and  suggesting  that  his   return   to  this   country  next  summer is doubtful.    He will spend  three months in California, and on  his return east will probably appear in  matches  on  courses there,  and then leave for England for the  purpose of elosiug up   his affairs  there.     Vardon's   decision   is  not  surprising.    His tour of the Florida  resorts   last   winter,   his   matches,  played in the east, followed  by his  visit to Chicago in .July, and finally  his victory in  the open  championship   of    the    United    States    at  Wheaton   over   a  field   which  included  J.

II invalids'  Stephen Phillips, whose poetic  tragedy, "Herod," has just been  pronounced a success in London,  litis been an actor himself in the  past. He was the son of the pre-  . centor of Peterborough cathedral,  and was born naar Oxford. It was  more by force of circumstances  than of set purpose that he adopted  the literary career. He had been  reading for some time for the civil  service, when on an impulse he  turned actor, attaching himself to  the dramatic company of Frank  Benson, who is his cousin. His first  verse was published in the Spectator, and in the desire to devote  himself as freely as possible to his  new muse he abandoned the stage  and earned bread and butter as an  army tutor.   _________ ^  The -wedding of queen Wilhel-  mina and prince Henry of Mecklenburg-Sell weriu has been fixed for  January 17th.

GUY LOCAL NEWS  The regular meeting of the Nelson Board of Trade, which was to  have taken place this evening,  stands adjourned until Wednesday  evening next owing to a meeting of  the executive of the associated  boards of trade of eastern British  Columbia having been called for  this evening.  The attendance at the Young  Men's club rooms, established in  connection witli the Congregational  church, is growing steadily and the  experiment has been quite successful up to tho present time. A  gymnasium is being fitted up in the  basement and when the athletic department is opened the club will be  in full swing.  Tlie ba/.aar at the opera house,  under the auspices of tho ladies of  St. Saviour's church, opened yesterday afternoon and promises to be  successful. The building is prettily  decorated and a quautity of .handsome articles of fancy work are  offered for sale. Tonight air entertainment will be given in the line  of a literary evening.  Charles Stewart was arrested last  night charged with theft. The information was laid by Max Crowe,  who alleges that Stewart entered  Crowe & Morris' store at Rossland  a year ago and stole therefrom a  sum of money and a diamond ring  valued at '$200. Stewart is from  Spokane and has ./worked at the  Hume and Phair hotels as bellboy.  The funeral of the late Mrs.  Abrani Lackey took place yesterday afternoon from McArthur &  Company's- establishment on Vernon street to the Union cemetery.  The Carpenters' Union turned ont  in force and the Miners' Unionwas  also represented. Rev. J. H. White,  paster of the Methodist church, conducted the services, assisted by Rev.  J. IL Morden of Rossland. The  pallbearers were AV. Calbeck, J.  S wal well and C. Creamer of the  Carpenters' Union and Sidney Watson and P. Foley of the Miners'  Union.         Passed Away Yesterday.  Many friends will learn with regret of the bereavement sustained  by Charles F.' Mcllardy of the  Nelson Hardware Company-through  the death of his father, J. H. Mcllardy, who passed away yesterday  morning at tlie Occidental. hotel,  Vernon street. The deceased gentleman had resided at Clinton, Ontario,  for many years and recently closed  out his business connections iu the  east with the intention of making  his future home iu Nelson. Together  with Mrs. Mcllardy he arrived in  the city a couple of weeks ago, aud  within a few days was stricken with;  the illness which resulted fatally,  although not considered dangerous  at flrst. The funeral takes place  today from the hotel to the Union  cemetery. Rev. J. H. White, pastor  of the Methodist church, will  officiate.  WHO OWNS THE BAND HORNS  from the shuffle, but the members  of the last organization found themselves without instruments. The  outfit of horns was in the hands  of Ed Glassford, one of the leading men in the " Citizens' band, and  as he had given his personal  receipt for the instruments to trustee Watkins and, further, declined  to admit the right of the latest  organization to claim instruments  purchased by popular subscription,  Mr. Johnston and his fellow members found themselves facing a  difficulty. To further complicate  matters Mr. Glassford was in the  hills working on his mineral claims  and could not be served at once  with a demand to give up the instruments. Then legal action was  taken by the Smelter band and a  writ of replevy was issued to secure  possession of the outfit. This was  placed in the hands of the sheriff,  who instituted a search of the band  room only to find that with the exception of a number of uniform  caps aud a quautity of music, the  quarters were empty. A week or  two after the search, and just as he  was about to return the writ, the  sheriff received a tip somewhere to  search the platform in the band  room. Armed with this hint, the  sheriff returned to the quest and  rooted out the whole kit of horns.  These were turned over to the  Smelter band, and yesterday's trial  was to establish the hitter's right  to remain in possession.  The outcome of the case appar-  ently leaves the title to the instruments somewhat clouded.  rnygs-.  EEC   _B~_Z"_____E_S   cfc  /xsrELSoisr  _r__-3i_o  S___T_D03Sr  STOVES!   STOVES!

Johnson brought  action to establish his right to  replevy on tho instruments acting  for the Smelter band and his suit  was dismissed. This leaves the  question of ownership unsettled  and tlio matter will probably be.  ventilated in court again be'fore the  point is decided. >*���  The story of the horns is interesting.   Two or three years ago it was  decided to form the Smelter hand  and a subscription list was started  to equip tho organization with instruments.    Citizens   aud business  men   responded   liberally and the  funds were soon raised.    The outfit  purchased   at   that   time   is   now  valued at not less than $350. When  the smelter shutdown last year the  band practically went out of existence as  the  majority of  the members worked   at   the   smelter.   In  March last it was decided to organize the Nelson military band, the  initiative   being taken  by the remaining members of the old organization.    The   military authorities  did not respond liberally to the request for support and the bandsmen  decided  to reorganize again,  this time adoptiug the title of the  Citizens' band.    Under this   name  the band  lasted  over summer and  then went out of existence agaiu^.  Some of the old  members got to-^  gether   recently and still another  reorganization was effected.    This  time   the Smelter   band  emerged  'TWAS JUST OUT OF SPITE  That a Liquor Case Arose.  A genuine case of diamond cut  diamond was developed at a sitting  of the provincial police court yesterday in the case against the McGregors of Crawford Bay, charged  with a violation* of* the liquor regulations. The police court revelations were the outcome of hard  feelings which have existed between  the Adolph Gooderow family aud  the clan McGregor. The Goode-  rows have a float at Crawford" bay  and run a boarding-house, incidentally supplying ..guests with stimu-  lents although they are not licensed  to sell liquor. The McGregors have  a hotel and a license and the reputation of running a decent hostelry.  Recently the Gboderows were prosecuted for breaking the liquor regulations and heavily fined -for the  offense. The McGregors gave evi-,  deuce in the"'_ ccise. and were naturally pleased to see their neighbors'  illicit proceedings punished. ���  The Gooderb)ws cherished a desire for reyenge and retaliated by  laying an information in which  ,they_=alleged/_that_^the_;MiLGregoijs=  had sold liquor on several occasions  to Adolph' Gooderow's son, a boy  under the age of 15 yeais, who  wears yellow curls down his back.  The charges were proved, but E. A.  Crease, who presided in the capacity of stipendiary magistrate, declined to impose a fine on the  ground that the ends of justice  could not be employed to gratify  private spite, as was evidently the  end desired by' the informants in  this case.
