HUME SUPPORTERS ORGANIZE
- Proceedings of a Mass Meeting.
The supporters of J. Fred Hume held
an enthusiastic meeting in the Hume
hotel hall last night, when the work of'or-
ganizing for the approaching campaign
was taken in hand. John Aytou Gibson
\va3 voted to the chair and George Luther
Lennox acted as secretary.
The first business taken up was the formation of an executive committee, aud
after the matter had beeu thoroughly discussed S. S. Taylor moved that the following comprise the same: John A. Gibson,
John A. Irving, H. G. Neelands, W. J.
Wilson, W. A. Galliher, M. Scully, Charles
Hillyer, S. S. Taylor, Robert Hurry, J. C.
McLellan, James McDonald, John La
Pointe, G. L. Lennox, Angus G. Shaw,
John Hamilton, Thomas Maddeu, John
J. Malone, and W. A. Jowett. This was
agreed to upon the understanding that
,jj* y^the chairmen of the committees at Kus-
'konopk, Ymir and Creston be also members of the executive.
A general committee, composed of
about fifty well-known workers, was then
drafted and was given power to add to
its numbers.
John A. McRae was then appointed
secretary for the organization, and during the campaign will be in constant attendance at the headquarters in the store
at the western end of the bank of British
■   Columbia building.
J. Fred Hume was then called upon to
address the meeting.   He received a most
cordial  reception, and in acknowledging
the same remarked that the enthusiasm
displayed  by the friends of good government was an assurance .that they had virtually won  the battle before it was com-
■'■  nienced.   The present meeting had been
(. called    merely  for   the  purpose  of  or-
f ganizing    for   the   campaign,    but    he
thought   that    he   owed    it   to   those
present     to     explain     how    it     happened   that  he was  again   seeking their
suffrages for a third time within the year.-
As most of the residents of Nelson knew,
he   was   interested in the Hume  hotel.

Has   a   Mineral   Output   of Upwards   ot   One
Million    Dollars    Every   Month
In   The  Year
WEEKLY   EDITION:
•SEVENTH   YEAR-NO  8
there exists a certain amount of rivalry
between three of the cities of Kootenay.
The people of each city were Jceeping a
keen lookout for any  little plums which
might be induced to drop into  their gardens.  Do the people of Nelson desire that
the portfolio of minister of mines  should
go to. Rossland or Kaslo, or that it should
be retained in Nelson?   Will  Nelson's interests be best served by the return of a
man to represent the city and district in
the cabinet or by returning a man to represent it in the opposition?   The speaker  said   that   he   would    not. say   that
should   Mr.     Hume    be     defeated   the
government   would     not   give     Nelson
anything,   but ■ tmifc   there    could   not
be    much      question      but      that     in
such an event there would be less incentive to the government to look after the
interests of Nelson than there would be if
a cabinet minister were returned.   With
respect to the charge that the new government had done nothing for Nelson district since taking office, Mr. Galliher said
that it should  be remembered that the
session was not yet one mouth old.   There
were doubtless arrears of work to clear
up before the ministers could  commence
to shower benefits upou their constituencies.   The land registry office would come
to Nelson despite  the fears of the supporters of the opposition candidate, but
the men who supported a party  which
took years to move in the matter of necessary reforms were mow complaining  because their opponents who  were now in
power did nob accomplish all they had
advocated in less than 30 days.
S. S. Taylor was then called upon, and
after complimenting Mr. Hume upou the
size of the meeting, proceeded to discuss
the incidents of the present campaign.
He reminded the electors that Mr. Hume
had not come back and solicited their
suffrages as a man who had done nothing
since he had been returned. The supporters of Mr. Farwell were repeating
such a story until they believed it themselves, .bub-there' was no truth in - it. Mr.
Hume came back to his constituents as a
man who under extraordinary circumstances has done a great deal. He had
accepted a portfolio and had overcome
three or four months' arrears of work,
and had siuce devoted considerable time

Gpneernihg the issues of the camoaip")
Mr. Hutiie Said he Was still in accord with
the platfprm adopted by the then supporters of the opposition in Nelson. Since
the present govermiient had accepted
office, several Of the reforms advocated iii
the same had been enacted, or were in the
course of enactment-; and as far as he was
personally concerned, he would not consider that lie had done hiU whole dtity
until t hey had all had been adopted. As
to the other members of the cabinet,,
they were all ready to assist him
in this respect. During the campaign
which had just opened he would endeavor
to make a personal canvas pf the whole
district, and public nieebings would be arranged for as speedily as possible, notice
of which Would follow. Given the same
support which he had received in the
past contest, he had not tlie slightest
doubt but that lie would be returned with
a very greatly increased majority.
W. A. Galliher was then called upon.
He reminded those present that affairs
were not in the same shape in the present
contest as they were in the general elections in July last. The men who now
compose the government were then in
opposition. In the general elections, the
supporters of the opposition carried J.
Fred Hume to victory in the face Of all
the influence which the government of
the day could bring to bear to accomplish
his defeat. He was then a member of the
opposition. He was now a member of
premier Semlin's cabinet, and this time
time would have the prestige of the
government behind him in his
fight. This should be encouraging
Having won under adverse circumstances,
there should be no difficulty in winning
the saaie now under mneh more favorable
circumstances. Iu;.the opproaching contest there was a new condition to
be considered by the electors. The
government of the day was firmly in
the saddle. Should J. Fred Hume be de-.
i'eated there would be a cabinet position
to be filled by some person other than the
man who was returned from Nelson in            _,	
July last. It should not be forgotten that I stranger to the greater number of the

along   the road of reform.     These tivo:
matters \vei*e but many which could b#
cited of the work done by theuew cabinet
of which Mi,*.  Hlime was a membei'.    It
had_beericha;rgedthat^the_new—govern-^
menfc  had discontinued   all   work   upon
roads and trails.   To a certain extent this
was  true. .The new   government found
thatthe public money had  been squandered on trails and roads for the benefit
of candidates for political honorsi     All
such    work    had     been    stopped,     but
other   work   had   been   takeii   in  hand
and the work of trail  building would be
done where it would be ojt' the greatest
service.    Another reason  which  was advanced as a reason why the people of Nelson  shpuld   defeat Mr   Hume   was that
"Joe"  Martin   was funning the govern*
tiieht.   The men who advanced such an
argument were .short-sighted.   They forgot that "Joe" Martin was an experienced
politician and that he had looked after
provincial affairs in other provinces. He
knew better than to incur the enmity of
his colleagues than by attempting to secure a following by intimidating  them.
The record of the new government showed
that there was no such condition as that
which presented "Joe". Martin as the dictator of the province.   Mr.  Hume  was a
member of the cabinet, and sp far he had
received  every support from "Joe" Martin and every other member of the cabinet in his efforts to discharge the duties
of his   office.   Mr.   Taylor  said  that  he
would repeat the warning given  by Mr.
Galliher.   The   people   of    Nelson   could
have no doubt bub that Rossland would
like   to secure a   representative   in   the
cabinet.   Kaslo would also like to secure
a cabinet minister.   The people of these
cities were just as much alive as were the
people of Nelson   to  the  importance of
securing      everything      which     tended
to      make     their     cities      a       ceuter.
The   people   of   Nelson    should     therefore   be    careful   how   they   deal    with
any   prestige which they have.   If they
lose one thing after another which  tend
to make Nelson a central point, it may
take the city years   to recover its lost
ground.   As matters stood the people of
Nelson had representation in the cabinet.
It was absurd to ask them to exchange
such cabinet representation for a representative in the opposition.   Candidate
Farwell was not a  man who would exercise any influence in any party.   Prior to
the   last  general    elections,   he   was   a

FAIRLY GOOD NEWS FROM VICTORIA
Victoria, Feb. 2.—The weather is unusually cold for Victoria,
and
working hard
it is predicted that a'light vote will be polled. Both sides are
ancl both are confident. The returns will not be
known before 10 o'clock tonight, as there is but one polling place
in the city. ■   '      ~ .     ,. ',
The British Columbia Gazette today contains several  items of
interest to Nelson.    The polling  places  at Waterloo  ancl   Goat
River Crossing have  been abolished as unnecessary.    A  registry
of the supreme court,  to be known   as   the   Nelson   registry  for
West Kootenay, is   to be  established  at   Nelson   with   E.'H. T.
Simpkins as registrar ; another is tobe established at Rossland,- to
be known as the Rossland registry for Trail Creek mining division,
with Fred Schofield as registrar.     Both offices are to be opened on
the 15th instant.    Two Nelson companies  advertise  their articles
of incorporation.    One   is   The   Tribune   Association,    Limited,
capital $25,000 ;  the other is The-Hume-Hotel Company, Limited,
capital, $50,000. '■   .   !
The bills introduced in the house yesterday included  one  for
the discontinuance of the provincial   board   of health,  which will
after  the   passage of the   bill   be constituted   by  the lieutenant- -■'■'
governor in council.     Local boards of health will continue to be

AROUND   AMONGc   THE   POLITICIANS:
Sioriea Of
Some of the Amjislng Incidents ana
the Campaign*
The chairman of the fiuance committee
of the city council is a sbrong Liberal, but
he is supporting candidate Farwell, who
says he is a good Conservative.   It is said
-tiiat-he'is=doing=this=in=order=tP-geDt^the=
"English vote" when he runs  for mayor
next year. 	
The man who handled the sack for the
Farwell campaign committee in, July last
is nob taking an active part in the present
campaign. Probably the sack this time
is not big enough to go around-.
City attorney Galliher, it is said, does
riot feel at home in. this campaign, after
having gone through a municipal contest
arm-in-arm with such truly good Conservatives as Hugh R. Cahieron and Fred1
Stark ey. __________
Should candidate Farwell be successful
in turning "Joe" Martin out pf office, A. J.
Marks is to be made agent-general of the
province in London.
The following is given for what it is
worth. After the July campaign the
Miner presented defeated candidate Far-
well with a bill for publishing his address
to the electors. Payment was refused, on
the ground that the price charged was exorbitant, and the bill remains unpaid to
this day. In this campaign candidate
Far wolf's fiddress had to be published;
bub the Miner's business manager refused
to accept it for publication unless payment was guaranteed by at least two
members of candidate Farwell's executive
committee. 	
A well known hotel man who was at
Vancouver recently is reported as saying
that attorney-general Martin and finance
minister Cotton are both laying pipe for
political ascendancy in that town, but
that they are pulling together fairly well
in Semlin's cabinet. lb mighb be said in
this connection that,if Semlin's cabinet is
not.big enough to hold two Vancouver
politicians at the same time that both
step out and let politicians, from other
sections of the province step in.
It would appear that Nelson, like Vancouver,, is, to be the.fortunate possessor of
a political parson. In Vancouver parson
Maxwell succeeded so well that he now
represents that, city in the house, of com-

[Trout Lnlco 'I'oiiio, January _5th.]
Although, owing to the many things
thatQconspired last summer towards making mining matters in the Trout Lake
very quiet, the recording office did nob do
as large a business as in the previous
year, still the following does not show up
so poorly. The number of mineral claims
recorded were 870, assessments, 437, and
transfers 237. The value of the free
miners' certificates and mining receipts
amounted to $5233.
The   locations fell  considerably below
that of last year as did most of the other
business of the office, but everything considered, the showing is far from  being a
poor one.   It is expected, ot course, that
the spring will see a  rush  to  the Atlin
Lake district, but as far as quartz mining
is concerned and   those  intimately connected with its development in  this division, the new gold discoveries will make
but    little    difference,    as    they     have
come   pretty     well   to    consider    that
though      the     profits    ' from      quartz
mining-    may    come    a    little     slower
they are surer and the fields are not so
likely to be overcrowded.   Added to this
is the experience gained from the indiscriminate rush to the Klondike last year.
The shrine of the yellow god is not likelj''
to draw so many votaries from the Kootenay as it did last year, for the experience
of the great majority of those .'.who .left
thesijver sections of the province was,
that though the gold placers of the north
are  reputed richer than the silver-lead
quartz mines of-the south, the hardships
.to be endured are infinitely greater and
the amount of ready0 money required to
outfit reaches a figure not easily to be attained by the average prospector of the
various sections of the Kootenay.

TELEGRAPHIC JJEWS BY WIRE
Makes Denial.
Ottawa, Feb. 2.—Aulay Morrison, member of the house of common's for the
Westminster district of British Columbia,
who recently returned from a semi-official
trip to Dawson, is reported by the Dtw-
son Nugget as saying that the Dominion
officials iu the Klondyke were a bad lob.
This report he denies today iu a telegram
to minister of the interior Sifton.
So far the bodies recovered are those of
W. Gator, his. wife and two children,
Frank Carson, the night operator, James
Ilidley, a wiper, and a Chinese cook.
Annie Burger, a servant girl, had one of
her legs broken and has since been removed to the hospital neat* Golden.
Cator had been at the Pass for four
years, arriving there from Bowansville,
Ontario. Carson, the operator; was a son
of locomotive engineer -Carson,.
The railway officials reported that they
expected to have the track cleared this
morning.	
The Act Will be Amended.
J. Fred Hrime this morning informed a
TunroNio representative that tho petition
of the Corporation of Nelson, praying for
certain amendments to the Water Clauses
Consolidation Act, had only reached him
at Victoria on Saturday. As he was at
that time leaving for Nelson, he turned
the same over to Hon. F. C. Cotton, the
acting provincial secretary during his absence, and urged upon him the importance of havingthe matter taken up at
once. As there is no request contained in
the petition which the governmenb could
nob consistently accede to, Mr. Hume sees
no reason why there should be any delay
in complying with the same, and he does
not anticipate that there will be any.
Since his arrival in Nelson, Mr. Hume has
written to the acting secretary in connection with the matter and expects to receive a reply in a day or two.
The Salmo Mill Delays the Work.
A. L. McCulloch, city engineer, returned to town last night from the Summit. He reports that.the work on the
electric light flume is being greatly delayed by the non-arrival of lumber from
the Salmo mill. The dam on Whitewater
creek is completed, and the rockwork on
the flume line will be finished in a day. or.
two.. It.was his.intention to put the men
engaged on the dam at work on the flume,
but nothing can be. done until the arrival
;of lumber.k..One teafri:of horses-;is;;stand-v
ing idle and the other will be out of work
as soon as the rockwork  is completed.

time taken, to complete the work arid the
fact that his  money is earning him  nothing, soon discourages the Capitalist and
he throws up the bond in disgust, arguing
that he is  being forced  to  take all  tlie
risks without a fair fighting show for his
money.
The condition of things, too, breeds
the bond speculator, if it be allowable to coin the nariie, this class
of mine promoters favors the inflated systeiii of prices, because the
higher the figure' the fatter the
Cpmmision is. In foot, high prices are
essential to his existence. He ties tip a
property for six months aba far lower
rate than can the bona fide capitalist expect to do,afor he prevails on the prospector to admit him as a partner, so to speak,
not in the prospect as ib is staked out, for
that would bear with ib certain1 responsibilities, but in the profits accruing from
any sale which lie by any chance should
make. Of course in nine cases Out of ten
he fails, but he rarely, if ever, releases the
property until the time stated in his option expires, thus closing the property
out from any chance of being turned over
should a man with ready money and solid
interests at his back appear on the scene
aud take a fancy to it.

from tlie mouth pf the Filrlay to the head
of the Rocky Mountain portage trarispOrb
was by boab. A trial line was l'riii on the
south bank of the Peace for this distance,
about 75 miles. Although this Was
through the Rocky .mountains no very
serious obstacles were met with. At some
points, however, the ma,urituin..s S'ise so

The horses of the party had been, left fit
Hudson's fjope while the Work from the
Finlay to, that point Was being done.
When the head or west end of Urn liocky
Mountain portage was reached .(Hudson's
Hope is at the east end) the horses were
used for purposes of transport, In an
attempt to carry a line on the south side
■past the-jportage great difficulties' were
met with in passing through the canon of
tlie Peace. On one occasion Mr. IhipOnt
nearly lost his life. Oijce tho canon was
passed there were no serious difficulties.
The country along the south bank of the
Peace is moderately level, and high above
the.river. Near the river it is deeply eu't
by gullies, but these do not extend very
far back, except in the cases of iMoberly
river and South Pine creek. These
streams cannot be got around, on account
of their length, and their valleys are several hundred feet deep. They can only
be avoided by following close to the river
bank along the low level until they are
passed.
The weather has not been severe in
Peace river this winter so far. There
was only one week of very cold weather.
In coming back the party were forty-
eight days from Hudson's Hope to Ed-

from,Lesser Slave Lake, brought by C.

One is edited by  an old time Grit from Manitoba; the other  is edited by David Marks Carley, a hidebound Conservative from Victoria. Neither one nor the other has known candidate Farwell long, yet one proclaims in  the columns of his newspaper that no one  in British Columbia better understands  the requirements of the mining interests  than Mr. Farwell. What a wonderful  man this candidate Farwell is, to be sure.  The next thing we will hear is that candidate Farwell knows more about how to  acquire title to crown land without first  having surveyed it than any other man in  the province.  In a long-winded address to the electors  of Nelson riding, candidate Farwell says  " he is   a Conservative���when   he   wants  office.

He accepted the  appointment at the urgent solicitation of  men who have borne the brunt of the  political battles that ended in the victory  that placed the government of the province in charge of Charles A. Semlin. He  has nothing to reproach himself with for  so doing. He is a Liberal in politics ; but  if that is a crime then at least one-half of  the people of Canada are criminals. He  has not been an offensive partisan since  accepting office ; but he is surrounded in  tho office he occupies by officials so malignantly partisan that they are offensive.  The Rossland Record deplores the fact  that the Gooderham-Blackstock outfit are  about to start a department store at  Rossland. Well, what of it? the Gooder-  hams were storekeepers long before they  became miners, and they are probably  going back to the business they know  most about.    This question might be asked David  Marks Carley, editor of "the Nelson Economist, with which is incorporated the Nation of Victoria, B.C.," namely, what industries of Kootenay have been dwarfed  by the elevation of J. Fred Hume to a  cabinet position and the appointment of  John A. Turner as gold commissioner of  the Nelson division? The only industry  that has been in any way affected, so far  as we know, is the one in which David  Marks Carley was solely interested. He  used to draw a nice little sum every  month for publishing government notices,  but now he doesn't.  Prefontaine explained that the directors  could not realize on their property in  order to pay off the sum guaranteed unless  they were given a full discharge and it  was agreed to free them from obligation  provided they paid 40 cents on the dollar.  Only a Report.  A report comes from Washington that  the Canadian-American commission have  agreed on international mining terms  which will vitiate the Alien Exclusion  Act passed by the provincial legislature.

Tuk electors of Nelson ridihg are aware  that the appropriations for the year ending June SOfrh, 18&0; were   made   by   the  Turner government; but they may not be  "aware that 75 per cent Of the money appropriated   i'or  publip work�� in  Nelson  riding \vas expended before the Turner  government quit office, in August last.  This a fact, however.   Tlie Semlin government   took  Office  in  August, Mr. J.  B'red Efurue being sworn in as minister of  mines and provincial secretary on the 23rd  day of the month.   Instead of having at  their  disposal the   money appropriated  for    such     public     works    as     roads,  bridges   and    trails    for   the    ensuing  year,     they    found     that    their    predecessors in office had spent the  money  in an effort to keep themselves in office.  The appropriations having  been   spent,  the Semlin government was not in a position to spend them the second time.   The  estimates for the year ending June 30th,  1900, will be brought down to the house  this month, probably before the day set  for the election in Nelson riding.   They  will be the best evidence from which to  judge what Mr. Hume has been able to do  for the riding he represents.  Tub Tribune will venture the assertion that John Anthony Turner has been  an efficient and courteous gold commissioner. No complaints have been heard  against any of his official acts. He is at  his office every hour that he is required  to be. He does not keep the public dancing attendance on him when they have  business  to  transact,    He was not an  COPPER ORE, &RY ORE, ISM) Qf?E  Purchased.and   payment made as soon after receipt of ore as  samples can   be  assayed.

Only a Pew Copper River Miners  Found  Gold
In Paying: Quantities!
The steamer Cottage City, which arrived in Victoria ou Monday morning from
the north brought news of many disesters
to Copper River miners. One of the most
convincing proofs of the truth of these
stories was the sight of several men
aboard who had been nipped by the frost
but providentially escaped with their
lives. Among these wasGeorgePolovitch,
who, although very badly frozen, managed to reach Valdez in a crippled condition, and had to have a portion of each
foot amputated.
Mr. Herbert Smith of Chicago, one of a
party of three, told in a matter-of-fact
way as men do who have passed through
many hardships, how Harry Cohen and
his young partner Smith started over the
Valdez glacier—the place where all the
disasters occurred—aud how Smith wandered away from the trail, his senses benumbed and finally died. "His body is
there yet," said Mr. Smith, laconically.
Cheou was found by Mr. Smith and some
others."on their way out, and they managed to carry the poor fellow down to
Valdez but could not save his life. He

in the spring. Bruce says he is out to

Out 75 cents to the pan at a depth of 20
feet. Quartz creek, which is a tributary
of the Tonsina river, goes as high as $1 to
the pan, and Tekili river also prospects
very good, and the gold is very pure.
Very little gold was brought out by any
one.
On January 17 there was a strike Bruce
says, right at Valde/., one of the lucky
men being captain Crockett of the Woi-
cott, who got there in time tp see 25 cents
to the pan washed out the very day his
.steamer came in. Bruce and his companions say thoy are going buck in March.
Ltich strikes in the porcupine district
are reported by northern arrivals and
from all accounts the prospects are
sufficiently encouraging to warrant those
who have beeu there in saying that the
Porcupine, Klahena and Salmon river
districts will in time be a strong rival to
the now famous Atlin district.
J. B. Peterson and E. Blom, partners
and joint owners in six claims in these
three districts, returned to Skagway last
week from an extensive prospecting tour
of that couutry and more especially the
Porcupine district. .
The Porcupine creek is all staked, Mr.
Peterson says, but the bench claims are
turning out rich results. Near discovery
on Porcupine, Peterson, out of 10 pounds
of dirt from a bench claim, panned out 25
cents' worth of gold. The gold is coarse
and of unusually fine grade, worth $18.00
to the ounce. On bed rock it was very
rich.
The Porcupine, according to Mr. Peterson, appears to be the richest. They
first prospected up to the head of Little
Salmon and crossed over the summit and
came down on the other side to the source
of the McKinley creek on both forks.
They found an immense glacier on the
right hand fork of the McKinley and report the country extremely rocky and
very rugged. While on the summit they
could see the Porcupine, but owing to the
formation of mountains and the great altitude; they could not get down to it but
had to come back down the McKinley and
'•'around to Porcupine City, which is located
about a mile and a half from the creek.
They found a man on the bench of the
Porcupine who had taken out. $1000 in
nine  days.   They  also heard of  others
equally as rich at other points.
All these districts are tributaries to the
Chilcat. The Poi'cupine embraces all its
tributaries and the Glacier river and its
tributaries. The Klahena river district
embraces the territory from the mouth of
the Klahena, and takes in Boulder. Rock,
Mallard and several other creeks of minor
importance, and not yet named. The
Salmon river district takes in all its tributaries and runs down to the coast.
While all the creeks appear to be
staked, Mr. Peterson says that but few
bench claims have as yet been staked, and
there is a big territory all through that
country that is sure to give results equally
as rich as those in the Atlin.
At present there are not many men in
that country ; they did not meet more
than twenty men all told. There are three
men wintering at the mouth of the Porcupine.
The prospectors in there have two recorders, one at Chilcat for the Porcupine
district, and the second at Haines' Mission
for the Salmon and the Klahena districts.
Messrs. Paterson and Blom are in Skagway for a fresh supply and new outfits,
after which they will return in there and
prepare for development work.
Looks   Like  Poetic  Justice.
The following extract is from an Ottawa
letter appearing in the Kamloops Sentinel
of January 31st:
There would appear to be0 a* certain
amount of poetic justice in the experience
of the Klondike Mining, Trading &
Transportation Corporation of which sir
Charles Tupper is president, which has
just held its first annual meeting in old
London. The experiences of-the first
year have been anythiug but encouraging,
but the blame for their troubles was laid
principally upou the failure of their attempt to work up a business over the
Stickine river and Teslin lake route,
where, owing to the absence of a railway

The ice was in excellent condition last  night at the Crystal rink and the second  masquerade carnival was largely attended both by skaters and spectators. The  prize winners were as follows: Lady's  best fancy csstume, Miss McMillan, representing a Greek maiden ; gentleman's best  fancy costume, W. E. Was��on, representing Oricou, the Twelfth Knight; most  original comic costume, James McOreatb,  representing Mephistopheles.  Fred Bosquet, of P. Burns & Company's  meat market, met with a very severe and  painful accident yesterday evening.   He  i       and another employe   were engaged   in  I       hanging meat in  the refrigerator when  |       one of the heavy iron  hooks  became de-  | ���     tached from the bar.   Bosquet was stooping   down   at   the   time   and   the  hook  caught in the back of his right ear,  tearing its way completely through the cartilaginous   part.     Dr.   Porin   dressed   the  wound, which required twelve stitches to  bring the torn parts together.  The transfer of a one-third interest in  the Lord Minto mineral claim, situate on  Tamarac mountain, two miles northeast  of Ymir, from VV. J. Noble to Matilda  E^oalet of Rossland, was recorded today  in the Nelson office; consideration, $25.  W. Wilkinson, who is connected with  the London offices of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, is in Nelson to become  better acquainted with the resources of  the country, so that he may be in a better  position to give information to intending  emigrants.  Charles B. Woods of New Westminster  died at Cranbrook on Saturday. He  leaves a wife and daughter. He was a  son of the late archdeacon Woods of the  church of England at New Westminster.  Although the public school at Nelson is  not considered a,s good as the size of the  town would warrant, yet the attendance  is fairly good. The number of pupilsf  registered is 32G, while the number attending is 252. The average actual  attendance is 179. The honor roll for the  mouth was as follows: Jack Baunerman,  Ross Fleming, Hauuah Knudson, Beatrice  Pfeiffer, Pearl McAlmon, Edith Thelin,  Clara Murphy, Milton McCandlish, Alma  Myers, Raymond Bard, Harold Aldous,  Eileen DesBrisay and Winnifred Kina-  han.

The pastor of St);;  Paul's needs the aid of the newspapers tof  keep both him and his sinners straight:^  ". Police > magistrate Crease had three^  cases before him today. One pleaded"  guilty of being drunk and swearing on"4  Baker street, and was fined $5 and costs^  Another pleaded guilty of an assault, and"  was .fined $10 and costs. The - case off  Louis Rougerot, on the charge of, being  insane and dangerous, was remanded until , tomorrow for further evidence ancf;  medical examination.  The Victoria hockey team of Rossland  will arrive in Nelson tomorrow to play a  friendly game with the Nelson team.  M.
