CANNED ROAST BEEF A FRAUD  SAYS   A   CHICAGO   MAN  Who Was in the Packing Business, and Who  Supplied the British Army With  Compressed Beef.  f  Chicago, March 15.���William J. Wilson,  former   West'   Park   commissioner   and  founder of the Wilson Packing Company,  which  supplied  the   British  tinny   with  canned  beef during  the first Zulu  war,  where the temperature was  hotter than  in Cuba or Porto Rico, may go before the  war inquiry board  before ic leaves Chicago.   The Wilson company went out ot  existence.in 1-85, and it has no successor,  according to its founder.   It is said that  the firm was the first of the Chicago packing companies to go into the  business of  canning compressed beef.    "There never  was such an article as canned-roast beef  for    commercial    purposes,"   said    Mr.  Wilson   today.    "It is   possible   to   can  it, but too expensive to make it practicable.   Every bit of beef that is sold under  the label of canned  roast beef is nothing  but boiled meat. I don't hesitate to speak  plainly of it, for the reason that I believe  it will do the packing trade good to have  the matter stirred up.. When  the first  Zulu war broke out,I was supplying; the.  English   government with   canned compressed beef, not corned beef, but beef in  square cans   that had   been  packed   by  vacuum   pressure.   When   the   English  troops were defeated, the Zulus captured  over $.100,000 worth of this canned  beef*  and ate it, and I never heard of their being made sick by it either.   Out of thousands of dollars worth of canned beef supplied to the English army, in the hottest  country in-'.the.world, we never received  a protest from the English government  about beef spoiling.   Business is business,  but   the   lives   of  American   troops are  worth more than a few dollars, and I believe   the  war  inquiry   board   ought to  show up the facts.   It ought to give some  of these   people a  chance to tell   their  stories."           A Train Abandoned Until Spring.  Cheyenne, Wyoming, March 15.���The  snowbound train on the Cheyenne <fc  Northern railway at Wheatland has been  abaudoned by the company, and steps  will be taken to rescue the passengers by  means of sleds. The company has beeu  hopeful of rescuing the train this week by  means of rotary plows. One of these  machines was borrowed from the Union  ._ Pacillc main' line and more were expected.  _* The one secured moved ou. a mile of ice,  . and snow yesterday, butlias beeii recalled  owing-to another storm on the "Union  Pacific. This' inability to get plows  accounts for the failure of. the company*  ..to bring the train through.'- The only plows  availablearethoseof theUnioh Pacific, and  they have been .working constantly for tbe  - last month to keep the main line of-that,  transcontinental road open/ John Oakley  of Aberdeen, South Dakota, William  Petti grew of Douglass, Wyoming,' and  John' Owen of Wheatland, Wyoming,  three.bf the passengers, reached here last  -night., They walked ten miles un snow-  shoes to meet oue of the relief trains aud  '. came to this city on light engines. They  are in a'pitiful condition from the hardships they have endured aud from cold.  Oakley's feet were frozen while walking  put from the imprisoned train and will  probably have to be amputated. All the  men have swollen limbs and are weak and  ��� emaciated from tbe lack of proper food.  They report all passengers sick from the  meagre diet of the last two weeks aud are  weak and disheartened.  MORE ORE IN SIGHT THAN EVER  BEFORE   IN   THE   SLOCAN.

By heavy  fighting Wheaton dislodged them and  drove them back, taking 40,0 prisoners and  inflicting heavy loss in killed and  wounded. He reports his loss as very,  moderate. He now occupies these towns  with sufficient force to hold them."  News From the Far North.  Seattle, Washington, March 15.���A letter from captain Parker, master of the  barge Admiral, which is in winter quarters five miles off St. Michaels, says:  "Six men arrived from the North Ameri- I  can Transportation and Trading Company's steamer P.

No one injured,  as far as known. =  Premier Silvela, at Madrid today, spoke  in favor of the intervention of France for  the purpose of obtaining permission from  the United States for Spain to resume  direct negotiations for the release, of  Spanish prisoners held by the Philippine  rebels.  Rudyard Kipling passed a good night.  He continues to improve.  The drought which was threatening a  loss of;millions of dollars to the state of  California has been broken by a rain  storm which has lasted several days.  August Becker, the Chicago sausage  maker who has been under arrest for four  weeks on a charge of murdering his wife,  has made a full confession. He said thab  he cub his wife to pieces and burned the  remains in a stove. Becker when first  arrested admitted killing his wife, but  declared that he pushed her off the Randolph street viaduct into the lake, and  that she was drowned.  Chief of police Lees of San Francisco  declares he will continue to make daily  raids at the Iugleside race track, until  betting on events is stopped.  Mrs. Henry White, wife of the secretary  of the United States embassy, who has  been suffering from a severe attack of influenza, is slightly better today. Queen  Victoria has telegraphed from the south  of France expressing sympathy for Mrs.  White aud inquiring as to her condition.

The smallest is $5,  oil a lot tilmost destroyed by freshet. The  erratic movements of Kaslo river at certain Seasons has entirely obliterated any  assessable value which some lots may have  had, and they have disappeared from the  roll. ___________  No Such People in Nelson.  Quite a sensation was created iii church  circles in Victoria ou Saturday when it  was announced that many members of  the Metropilitan Methodist choir had  resigned. A short time ago the official  board of the church brought in a strong  resolution compelling them to abstain  from theatre-going, amateur theatricals  and balls. A number of the members of  the choir had a quiet conference, and decided that their personal rights were  being infringed on. They claimed that  the board had no right to dictate to them  in such mabters and finally resigned. As  a result the congregation listened to a  very weak-voiced choir on Sunday.  Shipped 142 Tons Last Week.  The only town on the Crow's Nest Pass  railway that has not been given ordinary  facilities to do business continues to make  ore shipments. For the week ending last  Saturday the St. Eugene mine at Moyie,  in East Kootenay, shipped 121 tons and  the Lake Shore 21 tons. The ore went to  the Trail smelter, which is owned by the  railway company that refuses to give the  town of Moyie what it is fairly entitled to.  PUT THE CONCENTRATOR KEYS  IN   HIS   POCKET.  Contractor "Tom" Mitchell has Trouble with  an Old Country Slocan Lake Silver-  Lead Mining Company.  Affairs at the Comstock on Four Mile  creek, Slocan Lake, have reached a climax, and  the mill and  mine have beeu  shut dowu and the whole force discharged.  Saturday was the time fixed for turning  over the concentrator by T. Mitchell, the  contractor, but the company would not  accept.   The latter intended closing down  the mill at midnight, but Mitchell stole a  march   on    them    aud    locked    up   the  premises in the afternoon.   The mill cost  about $18,000,   and  two payments  have  been   made   on   the  contract.     Mitchell  guaranteed"a certain   treatment of the  ore and advances assays by assayer Wilson of Sandon on the tailings in support.  On the other hand,  the company asserts  that, the   mill   treatment  is not   up to  guarantee, and Howard West of New Denver, is now engaged making an exhaustive test of the tailings.   The ore of the  Comstock is galena,  in a granite formation. Much of the mineral sent to the-mill  is decomposed and flowers considerably,  thus accounting fbr loss in the waste.   It  is evident that the company has a white  elephant on its hands in the concentrator,  for which  the British shareholder must  pay.   The   company  has   pub  in   a fine  wagon road to the mine, and it costs $1  per ton to handle the ore, while a tramway could have handled the product for  10 cents or so.   A carload of ore and one  of concentrates was shipped last week to  Trail.   - -  ���'.���   -. ���'   '.-'    '-'      ���-���."���;���..'-.  KASLO   NEWS   IN , BRIEF.  R. M.

Another opportunity will be given  those who favor the organization of a local baseball team to meet and make the  necessary arrangements. The meeting is  called for this evening at the Hume hotel  by'James Neelands.  Alderman Fletcher scored a victory at  ���the meeting of the city council last evening, when his proposal thatthe Westward  should have an additional saloon and  hotel was endorsed by the council*. As  mayor Neelands was absent alderman  Fletcher was in the chair, so the resolution thab bhe bylaw be so amended was  moved by alderman Hillyer. He said bhat  there was a feeling.that an injustice had  been done the people of the West ward in  not affording bhem sufficienb saloons and  "hotels.  Alderman McKillop objected to the  resolution. He said that the clause in the  bylaw regulating the number of saloons  and hotels should be passed by the committee of the whole before it was discussed  in the council.  iV Alderman Beer agreed  with this. ,He  said  that there were one or two other  amendments which he would like to move  to the bylaw in committee.  Alderman Fletcher explained  that the  ���council could settle upon the question  whether bhere shod Id be any more saloons  or hotels, and the bylaw could be passed  in accordance with the decision  arrived  at.*"'''-';.'

V Alderman Hillyer replied that the council had not yet received the amendment  made to the Municipal Act in this respect,  but that as soon as it came to hand steps  .could be taken for the imposition of a license.  There was quite a wait before the resolution moved by alderman Hillyer received a - seconder. Finally alderman  Thomson came to his assistance.- He said  that while he was opposed to increasing  the number of saloons and hotels, he  would support the resolution* for the purpose of removing the injustice which the  people of the' West .ward complained of;  - Alderman ^McKillop moved.an amend-"  nient thab the matter be referred back to  theeommittee .and his' amendment-_was  seconded by alderman Beer. ���'"-*���*'   '"���  The amendment  was put first and received the support of aldermen McKillop, =  Beer and Kirkpatrick.'

A communication was read from the  city solicitor in which he stated that the  attorney-general had declined to take any  action with respect to the burial of  paupers. It was suggested that all outside patients ;,who enter the Kootenay  Lake hospital for treatment should first  secure a certificate that they are not residents of the city, but nothing was done  and the communication was received and  filed.  W. A. Macdonald had a communication  before the council suggesting that the  city investigate the provisions of a recent  act of parliament, which confirms the  West Kootenay L'ghb & Power Company's title to certain water. It set out  that as the act does not become law until  proclaimed it might be well to see if the  city's interests were encroached upon.  The matter was .referred to the public  works committee.  H. E. Beasley and A. E. Hodgins had a  couple of communications before the  council, asking for the improvement of  Baker street between Kootenay and Railway streets. They desired sidewalks,  sewers and the grading of the street.  The communication went bo the public  works committee.  Theo. Madson's application for water  connection for lots 18 and 19 in block 100  was referred to the city engineer.  Mrs. J. R. ���.Stutter's complaint about  surface water was referred to the city  engineer.  Harold Selous's communication asking  for a general fixing up of the roadways  and crossings in.the vicinity of the corner  of Stanley and Victoria streets was referred to the public works committee.  The communication of W. R. McLean  respecting the foreshore question was received and filed.  The report of A. W. Peck, the man employed to audit the city books, was received. The consideration of it was deferred for two weeks so that the aldermen may familiarize themselves with it.  The couucil declined to endorse the  application of O. M.

Brydges, secretary; W. .L Hatch,  and Thomas Parkinson. The president of  the society addressed the council in support oi! the communication. He said that  the society represented the great majority  of the people of Nelson, and all of the  christian churches with the exception of  the Roman Catholic church.  When president McKay had concluded  his remarks, alderman Hillyer said it was  too large a question to take up that evening and he would move that it be laid  over.  Alderman Beer said that while he agreed  with the prayer of the petition he would  support the motion to lay it over. lie  expressed the opinion that the sentiment  of the people is largely in favor of Sunday  closing.    Settlement Will Be Easy.  Alderman Thomson reported that while  in Victoria he had interviewed Joshua  Davies and the Nelson Laud & Improvement Company's solicitor with respect to  the dispute between the city and the land  company over the land used by the city  fdr its reservoir and over which the  waterworks flume run's. Alderman  Thomson said that he found Davies very  liberal bub the company's solicitor was  not so liberal. He said that he was convinced that, the city could secure whatever addibioual land was required, and  easily settle the dispute with respect to  T.

Rev.  Brother Clelabd pf Saild-n will officiate.  The Sandon Miners' Onion have started  their hospital in opposition to the New  Denver institution. ��� Dr. Brouse has in  the latter the most extensive hospital and  equipments outside the coast cities.  Work on the new English church will  commence next week.  Hill Bros., at bhe head of the lake, have  gotten out about 1,000,000 feet of logs this  winter for their mill. They expect considerable business with the mines in the  summer.  Spring   weather   continues   in   all  warmth and welcome sunshine.  The astonishing number of new strikes  that have been made this winter and the  vast addition of ore reserves in the larger  properties has given the Slocan immense  impetus.    Several properties have been  raised to the rank of shippers, and it is a  moderate assertion to make that the ore  in sight today is greatly in excess of anything  reckoned   on   in   the  past.    Last  summer things looked somewhat gloomy,  as not a few of the mines were short on  ore, and the influence of the Noble Five  group had a depressing effect.   The statement was frequently made that the Slocan  ore chutes did not deepen, and were little  better than surface blowouts.    Extensive  development has proven this to be manifestly untrue, as witness the Dardanelles,  Noble Five, Rico, Rambler-Cariboo, Last  Chance, Ruth, Payne, Idaho, Queen Bess,  Slocan Star, etc.   On all these the ore has  been tapped at lower levels, and not only  do   the veins continue   with  unvarying  richness, but the chutes are invariably,  larger.   On the Slocan Star, in particular,  there never was a" better showing than  now.'  The result in the eyes of the mining  world has been astonishing, and the effect  is seen in the rise in stocks and the constant inquiries being made for favorable  openings for investing capital.  SLOCAN   CONCENTRATES.  Genelle's mill, Nakusp, is supplying the  Payne with mining timbers.  Ten Mile creek is once more coming to  the front, as the result of the strikes on  the Mabou and Neepawa. Two well  known mining operators will inspect the  Neepawa as soon as the snow permits,  with a view to bonding the group.  The Bondholder group, on the Ten Mile  summit, is to be again worked next spring  under the management of R. C. Campbell-  Johnson, recently of Nelson. At present  he is in England interesting capital in the  property, and has issued circulars inviting subscriptions to stock.  On the Mabou, above the Enterprise,  the ledge has widened this week, and copper is now becoming prominent in the  quartz.  There is a movement on foot for the  grouping of several  properties on Silver  mountain,   back   of   New   Denver,   and  stocking them in Spokane.   It would be a  paying proposition to the stockholders.  - Cory, Allen and Foster  have,  iu   the  past few days, made a magnificent strike  of clean ore on the Silverite, a claim they  own "on the Sandon slope, between the'  Miller creek and.Palmetto claims. = It has  the. Queen  Bess lead , running entirely  through,   it.   The    owners, "commenced  work last fall and have driven 125 feet in r '  all.   They cut the vein a few days ago,  and it shows twelve inches of good, shipping  ore in the   very middle   of ic.   The  vein is lying very flat where struck,  but  the ore   stands-up well.   The fortunate,  owners will work steadily on the Silverite ;  and develope the property into a shipper. .  Messrs. Allen and Cory own the hotel and/-  -.townsite of Vevey, a townsite command-1  ing-Twelve Mile creek, Slocan lake.  The   Northwest" .Syndicate    has   purchased the half interest of A. V. Smith in  the Broken Lock claim, in the vicinity of  the Bosun^group.  -Two .carloads .of ore '  were shipped from the Bosun on Sunday.-  going to the Selby "works'at San Francisco."  On the Convention, on Silver mountain,  the No. 2 tunnel has beeu driven through  forty feet of wash to bedrock. - Large  chunks of magnificent float have been"  encountered all the way in, and in the,  breast there are three stringers showing  good o'r6 in each. n   "- ; ��� " f"" ���/l '  -Dhe^Ma ry. i^u^Wm^oWg|gMj y^_^.e1sh^rJ-_.

[iUoylo Leader, March lltli.]  The sleighing is beginning to give out,  which is rendering it very  difficult  for  getting out ore for shipment.     But this  will only have the effect of hurrying up  the buildiug of the St. Eugene tramway,  so that ore can bo brought down from bhe  mine regardless of the condition of the  road or the weather.    Work on the Lake  Shore mine is progressing quitefavbrably.  The tunnel is now in about 100 feet and  there is a splendid body of ore in  sight.  Another tuutiel about 100 feet below the  present workings will soon be started and  drove in on the ledge.   This will create a  considerable increase in the working force.  is a fine streak pf pay oTC in the breasftOf.  the drift, ���   " If"  Several   parties   have been exanjiuinfcr.  the Galena mines " pf late,   the principal ��  capital interested  being a Mr;.

It  has always fought charter mongers, on  the ground that they did not build railways, but only obtained charters'to sell  to people who did. At the last session of  the legislature, legislation was passed that  knocked out several of these charter-nion-  gering schemes ; and now it is beginning  to be hinted that the Canadian Pacific  pulled the strings that brought about the  legislation. Railway companies always  prefer to do business direct with governments ; and, somehow, governments always like to do business direct with railway companies. At the present time, the  government of British Columbia is centered at Vancouver, wliich happens to be  the town at which the Canadian Pacific's  interests in British Columbia are centered.

The dramatic moment of the trial came when Mrs.  Zerelcla Samuels, grandmother of the boy,  Jesse James, Jr., took the stand and was  asked to take the oath. She could not put  up her right hand, for that had been  blown off years ago, when detectives surrounded her house and demanded the surrender of her son, Jesse James, Sr., and,  on her refusal, blew up the house with  dynamite. When she took the oath the  old woman���she is seventy.four���held up  what remained of her right arm. She  made a weird, almost uncanny, picture in  the courtroom, and profound silence prevailed while the oath was administered.  ',:]      A;Veteran Railway Employee.  A. G.

Profound Silence Prevailed.  A few years ago the James and Younger  boys terrorized Missouri. They were train  and   bank   robbers.    The  Youngers are  now serving life sentences  in the state  penitentiary of Minnesota for killing the  cashier of a bank that they attempted to  rob in that state.

There are two souths���the  the war and the new south,  ante-bellum days was an  south, without any recognized titled nobility, feudal in its splendor and patriarchal in its simplicity. The spirit of its  people was chivalrous, high bred, generous and hospitable. Its classes were  made up of master and slave. The code  duello settled all disputes.  Iu the old south was bred much of the  genius that has shed lustre on the great  republic of the Stars and Stripes. It was  the old south that furnished the republic  its president for fifty-two years during  the first sixty-four years of its existeuce.  It was the old south, too, that demanded  the war of lS12aud won through its general Jackson the decisive battle of New,  Orleans over the commander of the British forces, general Packeuhan*. It Was  southern statesmanship that added to  the American union Louisiana, Florida  and Texas, and it was "away down south  in Dixie" that were born Audubon, the  naturalist, Maury, the geographer, and  Drs. Sims and McDonald, two of the  world's greatest surgeons.  /moit's^ii-imelifew  ;/StJi.e;s6.ut^  S1i._-i;ue&^  v-^lalti'riotf.^^^^  ^v'tfiMeTi^vBi^  ^nitl$iU^  & ;au��ii-Stiti-^^  s\f _ a ys^yfi^M fdb if B fe 1 a ve r-y. ��� Dcani_ot:s ib^-ntf- ���  \Wn'dedr%y.adf i uf ti tfir tibp< iSx^Iie^ioitth^i h"  vjkh'fe-hill'uni" da0:" ^dpu6fesla'*v;8#/ca:fi,-;  '":^not\bBrd'e);eif(&l "a����ans.iks.tj'tiiti|)hl;;n! yet its;  r"; ad mi ii is tiSajtioJij, \y tisl^o I#ar 1 y /per f ec fc��* i n.,  Vtf-_i"6;-ffi��j!ji^^  ��>jlf.itgeCa��i.d;hoTds;the  ,�� "ntihdeUcritic of bifrflay."

The nevv south has caught tip in its life  something of the atmosphere of the north,  whilestilT'retaining much' of the spirit  and character of the old south.

I doubt; if  prohibition \v1!l ever gain niucii headway"  iu old Kentucky. The major part of its  people is made up ol the descendants ot  the Cavailjei-and the Scottish Covetmn-  terKi aiid both have ii thorough .ipprecia-  tio'ii of Bourbon whiskey, which is soft  and seduetive^-so Seductive that John  Burroughs, the American naturalist, cautions all travelers to beware how they  suck any iced preparation of it through  a straw on a hot day, for it is not half so  innocent as ic tastes.  It is said that in addition to the ordinary college training there are three  essentials to the complete education of a  Kentucky gentleman : (1) Proper appreciation and respect for two men; (2)  thorough knowledge of horseflesh ; (3) the  ability to decide without hesitation the  qualities of Bourbon whiskey. One glass  of Bourbon whiskey is warranted "to  make a dead man's whiskers curl, while  two will pull him clean on his feet."  Yet the connoisseurs of whiskey everywhere feel and realize that prohibitionists  are making it year by year more difficult  for them to enjoy their fiery beverage.  Not long ago a United States appreciator  of the beverage thus feelingly alluded to  this growing difficulty: "The total abstainers are daily making it harder for  the man who likes to take a drink in moderation. In Missouri a'nian cannot have  a drink unless he stands up to take it. It-  Massachusetts he is not allowed to have  any refreshment unless he sits down. In  Maine  he   must  get  down   a cellar,   or  THE B-A-ISTIK:  OF  RITISH COLUMBIA  NELSON  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  climb up into a cock-loft, and be fed in  tlio dark from a flask whipped out, of the  pistol pocket of the bar-keeper. In Kansas he must swear that ho has glanders or  some such disease. In Iowa he must commit perjury and endanger his soul for the  sake of the spirit; and in Nebraska, although he can get a drink by himself',' it  is penitentiary offence to treat his neighbor. If this sort of goes much further,  there will be no fun at all left in takinga  drink."  The first intimation you have when  travelling south that you have struck the  southern belt is the division of coaches  into two departments���one for white passengers and one for colored passengers.  The same division or discrimination is  noticeable at the railroad stations, where  there are waiting rooms for, whites and  blacks. As you pull into Tennessee and  Mississippi the little darkey shack or  cabin greeks your eye at every point, and  you realize that ,you are indeed "away  down south in Dixie"���"away down south  in the land of cotton, cinnamon seed and  sandy bottom," for sandy and barren  assuredly is the soil of Tennessee. "I  wouldn't take a farm down here as a free  grant," said a fellow-passenger in the  coach.' "Why the soil is so unproductive  you couldn't raise au umbrella on it!"  Marriages Between Cousins.  In an effort to compare one hundred  cases of marriage between cousins-german  with one hundred average marriages  where no relation existed, the author of a  recent paper, Dr. John Inglis, took by lot  from a physician's case-book, who had  practised in a town of fifteen hundred inhabitants for thirty years and knew their  family histories well, the names of one  hundred.families, and had this physician  give him the record of these oue hundred  marriages with regard to sterility,  pulmonary, mental, and congenital diseases. These were then  compared with the marriages of  cousins. The latter showed a lower percentage of sterile marriages and a slightly  lower percentage of: mental diseases..

In all other  particulars the difference amounted to as  little as any such comparisons can. In  the one hundred cases of those not related, seventeen per cent were sterile;  in the cousins-german, fourteen and a half  per cent. These figures agree very nearly  with Huth's investigations.  Two Wedding Anniversaries.  Here is a story of a Milwaukee couple  vvho agreed to separate after fifteen years  of married life. They continued to reside  within a block of each other and to pass  the time of day impersonally when they  met. When the silver anniversary of  the wedding came on, both celebrated it,  although separately. Two church ceremonies were performed in the church  where they were wedded twenty-five  years before, the husband's ceremony being at 8 o'clock in the morning and the  wife's at 9 o'clock. That evening each  gave a reception at their residences at the  same hour, and the same friends called to  pay their respects, successively going from  one house to the other.

The  government has not heretofore made any  appointments, and none will be made  this year. .'  Missionary Work in Stocks.  It  is    announced  that    the  Rev.    R.  Trotter, lately minister to the Calvary  Baptist church of Victoria, is about to devote his attention to the Boundary Creek  country, in a missionary capacity.   The  modus operandi of his mission is to be as  follows:   After satisfying himself by personal inspection that the merits of their  properties as claimed  by the owners of  various mines are exactly as they are represented to be, he is to travel through  Eastern Canada and England disposing of  the stock of such mines upon commission,  all sums netted from such commissions to  be used for Baptist niissioharyr work in  the Boundary Creek district. - Now allowing  that a satisfactory- personal, inspection,   by .Mr... Trotter  is    a ..j-pruaran tee  of.   genuine    merit,   .which     is    hard:  ly . to   .be,   expected,     as:   before, bey  coming a Baptist   minister . Mr. Trotter  was, according to his own statement, a  drummer.   AVhat kind of property can it  be.which finds it necessary to.allow its  stock to be"peddled around.the country  by a minister, under the guise of religion ��  If they are reduced to this' extremity by  impecuniosity,   pitiable indeed  must be  tbe financial status, present and. future,  of  its unfortunate, owners.,  . As to the  value of .Mr. Trotter's personal guarantee  of merit, those confiding inve'stors'in the  East, whosseveral years ago on his, recommendation purchased stock in the Ivanhoe  mine, Fairview, at twenty-five cents per  share, and for which they cannot now get  six'cents, will doubtless give an unbiased  opinion.   When the peddling of mining  stocks and the booming of mining properties has reached the theatrical stage of  pseudo-religion, it���is time for legitimate  operators to call a halt;  Transfers and Locations ofj Mineral Claims.

Two miles up the outlet from Nelson is  a little spot of arable land that is locally  known as Florence park. William  Roberts has built a comfortable hotel  there, and the hotel is now open for those  who like such delicacies as spring chickens, milk that is not watered, genuine  cream, and fresh-laid eggs. There is a  fairly-good road along the water's edge  from Nelson as well a.s the finest stretch  of boating and sailing water in Kootenay.  The most artistic, sign in Nelson is now  over the front of Fred Irvine <& Co.'s dry  goods store on Baker street. Miller &  Skatbo did the work.  J. F. Weir returned last night from a  three-months' visit to Toronto and other  eastern Canadian and Americau cities.  Mr. Weir today let the contract for the  erection of a residence on Water street,  and will bring his family to Nelson in the  near future. While east he purchased a  large stock of spring and summer goods  and reports that among thex wholesale  firms Nelson is looked upon as the best  point for business in the Kootenays.  James McPhee has gone over to Okan-  agon lake to install an electric-light plant  on. one of the Canadian Pacific boats.  **��  So far this year the city has spent $10,-  000 more than it has taken in, and all that  it has to show for it is a starter for a  Hume.  The additions to the boxes at the post-  office make the total number 44S.  The hook and ladder truck for the fire  brigade from the Waterous Engine  Works ot Brantford, Ontario, was received today. The apparatus consists of  seventy-five feet of ladders, two Bab-  cocks, six buckets and other appliances.  BUSINESS   MENTION.
