 '~V  II?'  KOOTENAY  Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hurt  dreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  DAILY   EDITION:  FIJIST YEAR-NO. 21.

The activity which is marking the development of the gold belt to the south oi  Nelson, and the general encouragement  which is being met with by those who  have the same in hand, bids fair to demonstrate that Nelson has other mining properties tributary to it which in the aggregate  will discount in importance the operations  of the Hall Mines, Limited.  Already there are are employed in and  around the various gold properties close  to Nelson more miners than there are employed at the Silver King mine, and by  spring the indications are that the present number will be more than doubled.  The Duncan Mines, Limited, is a company which has done much to stimulate  interest in the gold ledges, and the  marked success which the company is  meeting with in the development of the  Granite and Red Rock claims cannot fail  to induce others to take up the development of other claims which at present  are lying idle. On the Granite and Red  Rock claims the company has a force of  40 men. The double-compartment shaft  is down over 150 feet, and levels are beine:  . run oil the' White vein, which has beeu  opened up on the Nelson-Poorman property. Assays made from the ledge  run all the way from $10 to, $120,  and the average result obtained  from 00 carefully-taken samples 'was $37.  The company has let a contract to Fraser  & Chalmers for a 20-stamp mill, and when  the same arrives the company will have a  pay roll of close upon 100 men working on  the mill and in the property. As a site  Tor the mill the company has secured the  western half of "Bob" Woods's pre-emption, which lies a short distance southwest of the railway bridge across Kootenay river, and an aerial ropeway ..will be  constructed for transporting the ore from  the mine to the mill.    .  On the Nelson-Poorman the development work mapped out is proceeding.  An upraise is being made from the lower  level to the main-workings, and driving  is beinff done on the White tunnel for the  ���Vpurpose of opening up stoping ground.

The following transfers of mining properties were recorded today at the Nelson   office:^Hercu 1esysi tua ted_on.north sidepf  Milk is Said to be the Cause of the Spread of  Disease.  "Milk as a vehicle for the spread of disease" formed the subject of a recent  lecture by Dr. James Dunlop of Edinburgh, Scotland. He said suffering and  disease would be prevented if we had a  constant supply of wholesome and pure  milk. Pure milk was just as important as  pure water. Milk and oysters were almost  the only two.'"animal" foods that were  swallowed and eaten uncooked, with the  consequence that much suffering, disease  and death follow. Zymotic or contagious  diseases of all kinds, were commuuicable  by means of unboiled milk, he should re-r  gard the. drinking of uncooked milk as  cannibalism, just as he would regard .the  eating of raw animal flesh as a relic of  barbarism and cannibalism. Our danger  from infected and poisonous* milk was not  so much from within the city as from  without it. Au enormous supply of milk  was seut into vthis; and other cities from  the cow-keepers in the countries. Over  this milk-.there.was little control,:and it  ��"\\^"s md f ie n"%i' od ncecls^u dd (ji'^h obr i'ib;le:*,:a;ua ���]  ��� i\ nsaiirtar^y. ��cdii dit io'lii:; ^iP:ijJi^a|Tclfal^ig."-.  ft-he-.tb \yri"s ��'i ta^wafei i's tni bTit��ed> 6 f teii A'iil "th��S  gSS^#'3^j"e'^  ?4cnQwn;tuat"tuber,cu]pns;��".pre.yailed*a  ..'cBwsfiri^the^co^'n^iesl'ey^^  Is.iyeljrthaniiinipng��.����cb"\ysSlli^it'h^b'yrls ?6f;'  '(tffe'Sci^Te^/.^fhp^  ^enB"ugh:'">^And)a;uiVuy^;,.''|.rfe  ' "sett rl e*t^" .f'e v���%; ".t yp lipid S'; "/ii ip*|i'iftei:ia,",  etj;:j:���aijdjs6re^^"tl|rda tsif".been.p"bnrj>ugh"t.;  ���i'uto^the"'"cities,d^'o.ui/the* x;otiriti?#s 'iu^milk  "���>ynich".hai&"J3e^  ^a't."the*SpUuee^6Ws\ipp  to'  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ���ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ih.  *SSSS&S:SfeSar*'  GIVEN FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH  Victoria,  Jan. 26.���The opposition held a meeting last even-  and  utter lack  ing   in  the Victoria  theatre,   ancl candidates  Turner,   Hall  McPhillips received a chilly reception.    There  was an  of hopefulness apparent, and although the theatre was pretty well  filled at the commencement, the crowd  thinned  out considerably  long before the end of the speech making.    The principal subjects  'dealt-with were attorney-general Martin and  the Alien Exclusion  Act, both of which were condemned.    The government candidates,  namely Gregory, Paterson and Stewart, held a meeting in the part  of Victoria known as Spring'Ridge, and met with  a decidely encouraging reception.  There is no question that the tide has turned,  and that on February 2nd Victoria will change  her  representation  in the provincial house.  The writ for the north riding of East Kootenay has been  issued, returnable on or before February,28th. John E. Griffiths  of Donald is named returning officer.  sfe&esessessfess-sssess ssaaasSiSSsssasssaaaaaaaaar-ssasaa^'  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  Miss  Miss Stn  Becket, Miss Whil  and Miss McDougall. After sides had been  selected the puck was   faced off by "Mrs.  Calhoun aud Miss Strang and the play im-  diately   became   very   fast.     Miss Mc-  Murray played point for one side, and in  addition to making some capital lifts, did  some checking that would  not disgrace  even the mighty, Charlie Johnstone.   Of  the   forwards,    Mrs.   Calhoun   was   the  bright shining star;  time and again she  would rush down the ice, dodging with  ease one after another of tho opposition  players, and the puck remained in her  possession  until the time came to shoot,  and then an insuperable obstacle always  presented itself in  the person  of a boy  who stood about 3 feet 4 inches in height,  but who played hockey like a Hamilton  Baker.   Between   the posts.;he was absolutely invincible and  his sporting  instincts    being   stronger    than    his   gallantry,   he  obstinately  refused to   permit  the  puck to  go between   the   goal  posts.    Mrs.  Calhoun's swift lifts   were  easy for him and he stopped them with  the coolness of a  veteran senior.   Of the  other ladies Miss Whitla and Miss Stranc:  repeatedly distinguished .themselves by  making capital runs.   In  fact, all proved  themselves adepts at Canada's national  winter game, and outside of the trifling  fact that the game was played  under lacrosse rules, it did not differ greatly from  an ordinary senior practice.   The lacrosse  element was introduced by the non-observance of the off-side rule; lingering/offside was in fact the most noticeable feature of the play in  the crack forwards of  Winnipeg's lady hockey experts.  ATTORNEY-OENERAL MARTIN'S  Vigorous   Remarks   re   His   Altercation   with  Price Ellison.  In   replying to Price  Ellison,   on   the  floor of the ��� house.' attorney-general Martin laid down a general  principle that  should be observed not only by politicians  in or out of legislative-bodies, but by the  press..

Ganger,   ore    Buyer  for   the  Trail  smelter, is inaking a trip along the main  line Of the Oanadian Pacific railway.   He  was at Kamlodps last week, abd eucouv-  ages the mine operators there by telling  them that the ore produced by the mines  around KamlobpS is the kind  his smelter  is looking for,     ______  A Pact Worthy of Note.  There are more men employed in aud  around mines and smelters in the mining  division of which Nelson is the recording  office than in the division of which Russ-  laud is the recording office. This-will be  news to the newspapers of Toronto.  Does Not Want a Smelter.  Richard Armstrong of Grand Forks has  returned from a trip to Montreal. He  says: "While in Montreal I was reliably  informed that the Montreal Smelter Company would begin work on their smelter  inside of 90 days. The smelter would be  built either at Grand Porks or at some  point ou the Kettle river in the vicinity  of it. Personally he did not want to see  it too close: he had much rather see Grand  Forks became a residental city, a wholesale, commercial and mining center, than  to have smelters located within the city  limits."   A Toronto Professor in Town.  Professor H. Montgomery) mineralogist  and geologist of Trinity University, Toronto, arrived in Neison last night. To  a TrimunR reporter today the professor  stated that the object of his visit is largely in the interests of science and education, in order to gain information r��Kard-  ing the minerals of this part of British Columbia at first hand for the benefit  of his science classes in the university.

In referring to the Kettle River Valley  railway securing a charter from the Dominion parliament at its coming session,  Richard Armstrong of Grand Fbrks says  there is no question but tuat Mr. Corbin  would bey successful, and that he has  been, informed on the best of authority  that construction on the road would be  coiUiiienced immediately after the charter had been secured. As the Kettle  River Valley road could be built in a few  months, trains should be running over it  into the Boundary Creek district by September 1st. Instead of one the Boundary  country will have two railways.  The Kootenay Valley Railway,  pointer's Ferry Herald, January 21st.]  At the present time there are not to exceed 400 men employed on the Kootenay  Valley railway between Bonner's Ferry  and Port Hill. It has taken longer than  expected to get the camps established and  the work under way. On the Canadian  side the work is farther advanced, as the  outfits.came from the Crow's Nest Pass  road mostly, and were, right on the  ground.   The Route is a Failure.  Inspector Strickland, of the Northwest  Mounted Police, arrived at Ottawa on the  20th instant. He went to the Yukon in  1895 with inspector Constantine. He was  iu Ottawa last fall on a short visit, and  afterwards returned to Tagish, where he  was last winter and summer. He says  there is plenty of food in Dawson for the  winter.

He Could give no answer  except some lame excuse about somebody  having told hiiii so, TJpbn that I' sajid to  him, 'Mr. ElligpU, I am informed,, in fact  it is a matter of com.mon(r���eport, that you  are not at all in a position to discuss  matters of this sort, that you are a  bankrupt and do not pay your debts;  These matters do not affect us as politi-  cians andjsvhether I brought rnuchjgr little  to this province does not affect me as a  member of this house. I am told that you  have a large quantity of property which  is mortgaged for more than it is worth  and that you cannot pay off these mortgages, but that is not an argument I want  to bring against you at any public meet-  i��g-'  "I then told him inofct emphatically,"  continued Mr. Martin, ''and I am prepared  to do it again, just what I thought of him  and his methods, and I used epithets  which I will not repeat iu this house, to  make my indignation clear to him. This  sort of thing, Mr. Speaker, aiinoys me  very much. I do not hesitate to make  plain statements regarding the position  Of my opponents on public affairs, but I  confine myself to public affairs and do  nOt-interfere with private matters, as I  consider it beneath the dignity of a gentleman to pry into these. Some persons,  however, forget when they get into politics that they are gentlemen, and that is  exactly the position of the member for  East Yale."  Here the speaker interrupted aud said  that the attorney-general should not go  beyond the matter of the complaint.  "Well, if his complaint was that I told  him in plain Anglo-Saxon what I thought  of him," said Mr. Martin, "I plead guilty  and I am quite prepared to do it again.  I am only sorry that all the members of  this house and all who heard what Mr.  Ellison said regarding myself were not  present to hear what I said in reply to his  dastardly attack. I shall take another  opportunity of doing so. I expressed in a  plain way iny loathing and contempt for  the methods of the member for East Yale,  and he should have come here today with  an apology instead of whimpering and  complaining. If the honorable gentleman  said that I used improper language towards him, or if his friends have circulate that report, I wish to say that that  is untrue. I think I used but one word  which might be considered improper, but  that was nothing great either one way or  another. I do not use bad language, but  I did take occasion to tell the honorable  gentleman that 1 considered him a 'low,  contemptible cur.'

Civic Monopolies.  The principle of municipal ownership of  civic franchises has trained headway in  Great Britain, hot a�� a result of any abstract theory with regard to it, but because in individual cases it has seemed to  work best. fcVanch'ises which might have  been fattening millionaires are being  most effectively applied to the reduction  of civic taxation. There are two conditions necessary to this happy result which  seem to prevail in Britain more than  some places; first, a municipal council  that wants to serve the public rather  than itself; and second, a municipal administration free to carry on public business on business principles.

The Semlin government is  what this  V'pr.ov.ihce Ihas long needed.

Daring my third of a century of residence in Toronto I have seen many a good  business man completely alienated from  the service of the city by this senseless  one-year term plan, which is a survival of  the old New Mngland town meeting system. How men, with important private  businesses to manage, like Aid. Hallam,  Da vies, Sheppard, Saunders and Score,  can endure such a needless infliction year  after year senilis to me quite mysterious.  They are certainly entitled to the public  gratitude.  A radical change is called for in the  office of mayor. It should be increased  iu dignity and importance, and made  more influential by being separated  from the council altogether. Why  should the mayor of a city like Toronto descend into the arena to struggle  rough and tumble with members of the  council? The latter should annually  elect its own president, and the mayor  should have a right to pass separately on  every act, appropriation, nomination and  resolution of the council before it becomes  operative. To prevent a deadlock the  council should have the privilitje of overruling him by a certain m:<jority. To  prevent what is called a i-jcket veto of  the council's acts, he should be required  to pass on them with reasonable promptitude one way or the other. He would  have, as he has now, the privilege of  bringing matters to the notice of couucil  by message. He would be the head of the  the city's executive. All the heads of departments would be appointed by him  and the council, acting concurrently, but  sitting separately. He would have the  power of suspension, but only a concurrent power of dismissal.  War a Brutal Pastime.

[Toronto Telegram, January 20th.]  It is an old and silly cry that is raised  in the Hamilton Times' suggestion that  the criticism of some of the Liberal ministers, especially the Hon. Clifford Sifton,  which appears in The Telegram, is inspired by "personal animosity." Criticism which originates in strong convictions as to the public influence of public  men, is not to be explained by references  to the critic's love of hatred of the man  who in its judgment does well or ill. The  The sublime character and genius of  Clifford Sifton may be apparent .to the  Hamilton Times. Let it feast its own  eyes on the gorgeous attributes of Mr.  S'ifton's rare character. Journals which  cannot see genius in the gentleman's administration or wisdom in all his acts are  not necessarily blinded by dislike of the  minister as an individual. Events probably has no feeling, except a feeling of  entire indifference to Mr. Sifton aud "the  other subjects of its criticism as individuals. Ably and brightly this Ottawa  commentator urges its opinions as to the  public acts of public men. It will be  better for the Hamilton Times to point  out the erroneous statements aud unjust  inferences of the journal which it attacks  instead of-whining about "personal animosity."   An Old Hand.  |GrconwoodTimes, January 2lst.]  Greenwood is fortunate in securing the  services of John McLaren for chief of  police. He is a better man than the city  could expect. Having long police experience in Winnipeg and Vancouver, be has  learned to keep his place and do his duty.  A chief of police requires a big body and  a good deal of common sense. John McLaren has both. Those who are anxious  that Greenwood should be an orderly city  will find the new chief a good-natured  man who attends to his own business and  is not at all anxious to meddle with other  people's affairs. The vicious, the tinhorns,  and people of that ilk, will find thatthe  road to Grand Porks offers greater inducements than au acquaintance with the  chief of police.  '*>"�� r %..'

A professor in the University of  Toronto on being asked to give his views  as to the immediate needs of Toronto in  relation to its material advancement  municipally, has expressed himself as follows :  "What Toronto needs more than anything else just now is another installment  of reform of her civic government. After  a long struggle we succeeded in having  the number of wards reduced and their  representation increased. It is now time  to abolish wards altogether and to elect  all the aldermen over the entire city.  They should retire in relays, one-third  each year, thus giving each alderman a  3-year term, and keeping up a continuity  of experience and probably also of policy.  Two causes would operate under such a  sys em to improve the calibre of the city  c, uncil. In ihe first place, it would put  ilie hand-shaking canvasser on the same  BiAICBR.

LAY, Manager,  fingers, "the money is nothing,  the little game that was the fun !"  fe  "Corbett is the apostle of the modern  school," they bawled; "the old-style standard of brute strength and akwardness is  forever shattered." And this was dinned  into our ears until the wonderful Corbett  met the plain, thick-headed slugger, Fitx-  simmoiisi at Carson City two or three years  ago and had himself reduced to impotence  in less than an hour.  Then    came    Kid    McCoy ��� beautiful,  bright, a wonder iu the'line of piroutte  and lofty vaulting.   Ah ! here was a phenomenon, sure enough.    lie had knocked  ' out a few clumsy blacksmiths aud'butchers, and lo !'he was the genius of the ring.  The spell   was   still, upon   men's minds.  They saw him dance and kick,  fljt here  and there like lightest gossamer, excel-the  human snake of the dime  museum, and  play the contortionist until  thtvgallery_  howled again.   McCoy was the wonder of  his time. What were these lumpy ruffians  to   him ?     lie   was-  elusive,   intangible,  remote.     Heavy hoodlums, such' as Sharkey no doubt is, could  never touch him.  lie  would show  the  world  that"intelligence, refinement, skill, and so pn, were  masters of- the .primitive   ruffians, "and  would cast a glow of estheticism over the  unjustly abused  arena of pugilism and  educate the world to its tender and poetic  possibilities. Then the ruffian aud maitre-  de-ballet met, and the ruffian knocked the  sweet young thing into a stupor of insensibility.   Much is said about the fact that  McCoy floored Sharkey twice-in one single  round���the third.     But we ask :     What  does that prove? In our opinion, it proves  simply that the dancing master is the inferior of the  slugger.   If  Sharkey  had  knocked McCoy down twice in the third  round we should never  have   heard of  McCoy again.   The dancing-master" would  have died then and there.   The awkward  ruffian got up again and  went oh cheeiv  ^fully^withfhis-Occupationr^John=��ir^ulli--  van once had the same, experience at the  hands of a mere sparrfer���Mitchell1���but it  had about as much effect on- him as the  impact of a peashooter projectile against  a basalt cliff.   He rose again and promptly belted his adversary into nothingness.  What is the moral of all this ?   It is, in  our opinion, the moral that prize-fighting  is not a question  of culture and refinement.   The big,  strong,  insensate brute  will demolish the scientific dandy every  time.   Pugilism is brutality pui'e and simple.   We   denounce the   bull   ring   with  pious   ujpturned  eyes,  but the  qualities  represented by Mazzatini and fVasouOlb  are as superior to those of the prizefighter��� measured by the modern standards���  as would have been   the qualities of the  Greek to those of theBeotian."  Has Abandoned Precautions.  Czar Nicholas lias done away with his  , third empty train. He is content with  two, one for his servants and baggage  and the other for himself, his family and  his suite. Sometimes even he dispenses  with the second train, as, for instance,  when he travelled across the entire  breadth of Russia the other day from the  Crimea to attend the funeral of his  grandmother, the queen of Denmark, at  Copenhagen. On that occasion there was  only one train. He likewise has dispensed  with the elaborate military protection of  the lines over which he travels, the practice of stationing sentinels on both sides  ot the line at a distance of 100 yards from  one another, having been abandoued by  his orders. The young czar has the good  sense to be something of a fatalist, and is  of the opinion if Providence intends him  to die by a violent death no human  device can preserve him from his fate.,  The czar has abandoued many of these  costly precautions that were adopted by  his father and grandfather when traveling by rail. During the previous reigns  three separate imperial trains werealways  prepared for the czar, aud for his suite,  and until the very last minute everybody,  even the more trusted of the officials,  were kept in ignorance as to which of the  three trains the emperor proposed to  occupy. They were run at intervals of  about a quarter of an hour, and while one  The Largest Piece  of Gold Found  in   Cariboo  District. :o  The discovery of placer gold at Butcher  Point on Lightning creek, Cariboo district,  iu 1SG1, was one of those casualties that  affords tlie'theoretical  miner a plausible  argument in support of a biblical quotation that "gold is where they find it," and  should the same theoretical miner be fortunate in a newly-discovered mining camp  to get a rich claim," which often happens,  he forgets all about his pet  theory ancl  assumes   to   know more about-"plaster  mines," as he terms it,, than all the old  miners in the country.   Joe Gilmore, the  discoverer of Butcher Point,  was a good  coal miner, but a tenderfoot as far as his  knowledge of gold mining was concerned.  He had no idea of looking for or finding  gold where his footsteps directed him on  that   memorable   occasion.     The   same  circumstances   might  have   occurred in  the   days   of    Solomon,   for   we   learn  ministers   of   the   gospel   describe   gold  as "filthy lucre"   when  they   preach  to  their   congregations,    that   "silver   runs  in leads and  gold is where they find-it."  Joe   Gilmore   was   not   prospecting  for  gold at the time of his lucky strike, he  was  out  attending to   more  important  business   to   himself,   and while "so   engaged  in a stooping position, somewhat  abstractedly picked a few smooth rocks  from the gravel at his feet, and in doing  this   was   more 'than surprised - to   fiuds  three small nuggets of gold.   They were'  not  all of uthe same size, but each piece  made  Joe's    eyes   protrude   from   their  .sockets as he looked at them in bewilderment.'  How did this gold-get there?-was  all. Joe "could  think  of at'the'moment.  Someone   must  have   lost  it out of his  pocket andhe felt his own to. make sure  it'was not his; then he thought that one  of  the   men  working on the   Whitehall  claim  might have dropped them  there.  This latter thought seemed so reasonable  to him that he�� went back  to 'the cabin  and informed his two chums,  Tom  Arch-  dale and Charley McIIardy, of his good  luck.  The two friends were practical miners  from Australia. They listened to Joe's  story and winked a wink of intelligence  at each other as they hastened to the  spot with pick, pan and shovel to make  developments. A hole was soon made  and a pan of dust-.taken from it, which,  when washed, yielded ah ounce and a  half of coarse gold. The discovery was  told to a few friends, and the whole flat  located. Gilmore, Archdaleand McHardy  got the discovery claims at the lower end;  George Nye, Butcher and the Howel brothers took next and John Duffy got: about 200  ^t'the^ippef^en^^  claims around Cariboo that were worked  on the hydraulic system. Common canvas hose and a brass nozzle, such as were  used on fire engines in the early days,  performed the work successfully. The  Butcher claim which paid best gave the  location its popular name of Butcher  Point, where the largest piece of solid  gold ever found in' the^Cariboo district  was taken from. Its, weight approximated 30 ounces and it was valued at $500.  A Millionaire Bushman.'  James Tyson, the' wealthiest man in  Australia, who died recently, was as a  lad, and remained to the end Of his life* a  bushman, pure and simple. Though he  accumulated great wealth he recognized  none of the ordinary civilized uses of  money, but maintained throughout his  career the frugal habits of the beginning,  working no less continuously at seventy  than he had worked at seventeen, wear-",  ing habitually a shabby suit of ready-  made -clothes, with a silver watch, of  which a bootlace formed the guard* and  eating only the same hard-fare that had  served him when, as a young laborer, he  took the position of "leading scythe" on  the station of two brothers of the name  of Vine. His life was liyed in the Open  air, and as a man Of over seventy years of  age he was able to say of himself that he  had never entered a church, a theatre or  a public house, that he had never tasted  beer, wine or spirits, that he had never  sworn, aud that he had never washed  with soap���he used sand instead���nor  worn a white shirt or a glove. He was of  splendid, though somewhat spare and  hard, physique, aud at seventeen stood 6"  feet, 4 inches in his stockings^ His figure,  as known more familiarly of late years,  was that of a square-shouldered, slightly  stooping, but active man, ..with, a keen  face, set below a crop of iron grey hair,  and distinguished by particularly bright-  deep^set grey eyes.  His money did not interest him. He  used to say of it: "I shall just leave it  behind me when I go! I shall have done  with it then, and it will not concern me  afterward. But," he would add with a  semi-exultant, characteristic snap of his  asked once, "What was the little game  he replied with an energy ot concentration peculiar to him, "Fighting the desert!  That has been my work. I have been  fighting the desert all my life and I have  won! I have put water where there was  no ���water and beef where there was no  beef! I have put fences where there were  no fences ancl roads where there were no  roads! Nothing can undo what I have  done, and millions will be happier for it  after I am long dead." .  Mr. Tyson was entirely Australian, and  had no experience beyond the limits of the  Australian colonies. At 71 years' of age,  having never had a holiday in his life, he  entertained for a time the thought of  winding up his affairs and starting to see  the world before he died, but finally condemned his own project as being too idle  and self indulgent.

Whey the Go'lurubi'a Towusite Coiiipany  took lipid of Cfiluinbia, a towusite in fclie  J^bundacy Gceek disti'it't, it secured cdu-  ti'QI of the two big stage lines running  through the.Boundary Creek country, Iu  the old days all the staged plying into  Boundary Creek passed through Grand  Forks* bub" with the acquisition of Columbia the new company made that town the  headquarters for traffic into the district.  A new and more direct road was constructed at considerable expense and a  bridge built for the use of the stages  traveling through to Columbia, Republic,  Greenwood and other points. rrhe change  leaves Grand Forks entirely out of the  line of traffic, and the citizens of that  place were, naturally perturbed as to the  filiation. The trouble culminated on  Friday night of last. Week when a section  of the road was blown up and the highway made impassable for the time. Fortunately the superintendent of the stage  line was informed by telephone in time to  divert his stages around by Grand Forks,  so that no trouble resulted.  Political Meeting on Monday Night.  A public meeting will be held in the  Hume Hotel hall on Monday evening, under the auspices of the Nelson Liberal-  Conservative Association. Sir Charles  Hibbert Tapper, late minister of marine  and fisheries, will be present and deliver  an address on the political questions of  the day. An effort is being made to  secure the presence of Hewitt Bostock,  M.P., and make it a friendly joint meeting.    A Good Story.
